Colin Covert and Chris Hewitt talk Oscars with the Cube Critics

Each week MPR movie buffs Stephanie Curtis and Euan Kerr give their take on the latest movie releases in a radio segment called "Cube Critics" (named so because they sit near each other in the newsroom's cube farm).

This week the duo have put together a special two-parter in anticipation of the Oscars this weekend, and they invited two other noted movie critics to chime in.

Yesterday, the Star Tribune's Colin Covert weighed in with his thoughts on who will - and who should - win in the category of Best Actor.

Covert says he doesn't imagine the Oscars for the actors will vary in any way from the Screen Actors Guild awards.

He says those who were sadly overlooked for awards were Ryan Gosling and Andy Serkis.

Stephanie Curtis threw in her vote for Albert Brooks in "Drive"

Euan Kerr cast his vote for Tilda Swinton in "We need to talk about Kevin"

Tonight, the Pioneer Press' Chris Hewitt will give his nominations for Best Film.

So who do you think will win the Oscars this weekend? And who should win, but won't?
