Sopris Sun editor Will Grandbois and KDNK's Gavin Dahl review some of the Oscar-nominated films ahead of the Academy Awards this Sunday night. Then they go beyond the Oscars to recommend a few underrated films. Both agree Booksmart was hilarious and deserved a Best Screenplay nomination. Will suggests The Lighthouse, Peanut Butter Falcon, and The Dead Don't Die. Gavin suggests Just Mercy, Always Be My Maybe, and Captive State. Plus, they tout the Sopris Sun's upcoming 11th anniversary benefit screening of ET at the Crystal Theatre in Carbondale on Thursday, Feb. 13. See you at the cinema!

Gavin became one of the youngest station managers in public radio on February 1, 2017. He is a writer and producer with a passion for community media. Prior to starting at KDNK as news director in 2016, Gavin worked for national radio programs Alternative Radio with David Barsamian and Nonprofit Radio with Tony Martignetti along with local stations KGNU Boulder, KYRS Spokane, KRBX Boise, KAOS Olympia, and Air America Radio affiliate KPTK Seattle. His nonprofit management experience includes Open Media Foundation, where he led a government transparency team, and Common Frequency, where his policy advocacy supported dozens of noncommercial radio startups. Boulder Weekly, Raw Story, Austin American-Statesman, Boise Weekly, and The Sopris Sun have published his reporting. His TV credits include directing teams at Colorado Channel, crewing for Democracy Now!, and hosting on Free Speech TV. He graduated from the Evergreen State College in 2008 with a BA in media production and community organizing.
