We're rolling out our own red carpet for the 2013 Academy Awards with Oscar contenders who have announced their love for NPR on camera.
While the Academy is keeping the official envelopes sealed until Sunday, vote now for your favorite fan of NPR from this year's batch of Oscar-nominated films and actors.
Even if your pick doesn't take home a statue this weekend, check back after the ceremony to see if he or she won our Best "I Heart NPR" Picture. And browse NPR's Oscars 2013 page for reviews, nominee interviews and up-to-date special coverage.
