William Kerns of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal joined the Williams & Hyatt Show Thursday afternoon to discuss the upcoming Academy Awards and events going on around Lubbock.

Kerns will release his Academy Award predictions Sunday morning in the Avalanche-Journal.

"I'm think it's a two film race between 'Hugo' and the 'Artist'," Kerns said. "If those votes split that's the way a movie like the 'Help' can slip in."

Hyatt and Kerns discuss the show 'Stomp' that is in town Friday night, and fill in the background of how the movie 'Act of Valor' came to be.
