Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

Scott Feinberg, awards analyst for the Hollywood Reporter joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • The troubled media company Viacom is looking to sell a minority stake in Paramount Pictures. There's speculation that a Chinese company like Alibaba or Wanda, or a tech company like Amazon would be the most likely buyers. 
  • The Oscars are here -- finally! We can make educated guesses about most likely wins in many of the major categories, but there's still plenty of opportunity for surprise. And in the year where the biggest awards story has been Oscars So White, it feels strangely fitting that black comedian Chris Rock is slated to host. Harvey Weinstein and other studio heads know they're going to get eviscerated in Rock's opening monologue.
