After a victory at the Directors Guild of America Awards, Sam Mendes's '1917'
seems poised for dominance on Oscar night. How did the most exciting race in
years become so predictable so quickly? And if there are surprises on February
9, what will they be? Sean, Amanda, and Chris Ryan debate whether a '1917'
Best Picture win would signal a return to unimaginative Academy tradition
(1:17). Then they break down the weekend's box office winners and losers,
including Guy Ritchie's tasteless but entertaining crime romp 'The Gentlemen'
Hosts: Sean Fennessey and Amanda Dobbins
