Video: Boise Moviegoers Make Their Oscar Picks



The road to the Academy Awards is a circuitous journey, but Boise Weekly readers are up-to-speed on all of the nominees because they've tagged along with our coverage of world and North American premieres of Amour, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and The Master.

Additionally, we've introduced readers to the Boise High grad whose live-action short subject—Buzkashi Boys—is one of this year's Oscar short nominees, and we met Lee Schatz, the Idaho native whose real life drama became the hit movie Argo, which is favored to take home the Best Picture Award at the Oscars, Sunday, Feb. 24.

As the clock ticks down to the big shindig, BW popped by The Flicks—which is currently showing a slew of nominees—to conduct an informal poll of the Treasure Valley's most avid moviegoers. Here are their predictions for who will take home Hollywood's biggest prize.
