The 2014 film awards season concluded recently with the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Whiplash all walked away big during the 3+ hour long event. To begin this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News, the hosts review the winners, losers, surprises, snubs, and memorable moments from the Oscars, and its host, Neil Patrick Harris.

From there, Fox and Chris get into a round of Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down where they discuss Neil Blomkamp’s impending Aliens sequel, Morena Baccarin in Deadpool, and even the rumblings of a potential film adaptation of the popular board game, Settlers of Catan.
