Trying to second guess the 9,000+ members of the Motion Picture Academy has become a cottage industry.

Every major media outlet from The New York Times to Variety handicaps Hollywood’s biggest prize; plus, there are oodles of online gambling sites more than anxious to take your money on betting who might win (with just a couple of days before the ceremony, Vegas bookies have "The Power of the Dog" as a slight favorite to win Best Picture, with "CODA" coming in a close second).

But this year, we’re turning to the true insiders – the ticket-taking, snack-making team at The Flicks in Boise.

In between screenings, Morning Edition host George Prentice spent some time with Jarod Bastrom, Keren Starnes and Sydney Valencia-Slighter to talk Oscars. But the rules were that … well, there were no rules.
