At this special public taping, Pop Culture Happy Hour's fourth live show in Washington, D.C., the team will gather to discuss, analyze and riff on what the film world is talking about – this year's eight Academy Awards nominees for Best Picture and the 2015 awards season. Following the taping event, attendees are invited to a meet-and-greet with the entire round-table panel.
