From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 23 February 2015

The excitement is building in Hollywood ahead of the 87th Academy Awards. New Zealander Anthony McCarten is nominated for best picture and adapted screenplay of the Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything. And Weta Digital is up for visual effects in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Sir Peter Jackson's final Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies, has been shut out of the best picture category but is nominated for Best Sound Editing. Wellington-based film reviewer Graeme Tuckett joins us to talk through the nominations.
