This week online, Bill McGarvey of BustedHalo returns to America to discuss this year's Oscar contenders with myself and culture editor Father Jim Martin. Will "Avatar" triumph or can "The Hurt Locker" squeak out a surprise win? What do "Up" and "Up in the Air" have to say about detachment, and what exactly happened in the final scene of "A Serious Man"? Find out on this extended conversation in anticipation of the Oscar broadcast on March 7.

Listen to "Deconstructing Oscar" Part 1 and Part 2.

Also this week, we weigh in on the iPad and other readers on our weekly video commentary. Enjoy.

Is the use of "myself" correct in the first sentence?
