We will also learn more about one of Hollywood's most sought-out actress who remains unknown, even though she is the only one among the 10 actresses nominated this year who will be returning for the second consecutive year. Jessica Chastain, nominated for Best Actress, will talk about her journey to stardom.

During this special, Arciniegas will once again sit down with Mexican actor, Gael Garcia Bernal, who is ambassador for the only Latin American film nominated for Best Foreign Film. García Bernal will explain with historical data why his film "No" has a good chance to get the coveted statuette.  Also, Ben Affleck, who has become the big star of the awards season thanks to the film he directed, produced and starred in 2012 (Argo), will be a featured guest during this half hour.

Miguel Ángel Antoñanzas will host Fuera de Cámara, a special that will analyze how the themes of the nine films nominated for Best Picture in The Oscars translate into real life. Antoñanzas will feature stories from our region that give another vision of the original scripts of the nominated movies. He will travel all around the world to meet real people with stories similar to those on the big screen. The special will air on Saturday, February 23 at 8 pm (ET).
