Studios Try to Influence Oscar Voters

Hosted by

Tomorrow's the last day of voting for this year's Oscars, which will be given out Sunday.  In an attempt to curtail campaign spending, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has shortened the season between nominations and Oscar night. Has it worked?  What is the role of the Internet?  Film critics? Are certain genres more likely to win than others?  We hear the latest buzz from Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times and Peter Rainer, film critic for the Christian Science Monitor and president of the National Society of Film Critics.
