The Oscars are here, and everyone has an opinion.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, former governor of California, is back with a new movie, "The Last Stand." But can the 65-year-old "governator" still move tickets as an action hero? Or will fans have trouble seeing him as something other than a politician and the man who messed up a marriage with Maria Shriver? The Takeaway's Movie Date team, Rafer Guzman and Kristen Meinzer, share their thoughts on politics and Hollywood.
Welcome to the first of several Movie Date Award Season Dispatches. Each dispatch is taken from a live interview, led by WNYC's Amy Eddings, and broadcast during All Things Considered on WNYC. In this dispatch, Rafer and Kristen share their thoughts on the Oscar nominees - and whether they truly represent the best pictures of the year.
