"The period leading up to the Oscars is always our busiest time of the year, possibly because so many of our guests have wound up holding the treasured trophy," says James Lipton. "This year is no exception. Bruce Dern's 'Inside the Actors Studio' episode has recently aired. Amy Adams' episode and Matthew McConaughey's episode will air on consecutive nights, February 19th and 20th.Three great new episodes and three great Oscar candidates.

In addition, the actor discloses the rigorous homework he conducted for his portrayal of AIDS victim Ron Woodruff in the Focus Features film, "Dallas Buyers Club," for which McConaughey won a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award Nomination for "Best Actor."
