(1010 WINS) -- With the best director category, it's not so much the magic that happens in front of the camera, but the magic behind the camera.
There's buzz that Spike Lee may finally snag an Oscat for "BlacKkKlansman," but there's been a lot of love shown for Alfonso Cuarón's "Roma."
Sure, "Vice" has been met with critical acclaim, but it may not be enough to snag Adam McKay an Oscar.
And what about Pawel Pawlikowski's "Cold War" and Yorgos Lanthimos'The Favourite?" They appear to be long shots.
In the video above, Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier and 1010 WINS' David Caplan review the best director nominees.
