Robin is the host for the second week in a row (but rest assured, Bianca returns for the next one), and he is joined by fellow nominees, Jonathan, Doug, and yet another new-comer to the show, JD Grant. The discussion is the endless debate of the acting categories at the Oscars. From leads nominated in Support, and supporting players landing in Lead. The terms category fraud, co-lead, unbelievable, are just a few of the remarks thrown about. Go have a listen. Subscribe, rate, review, you get the picture.
