    Long hours on the road, sleeping on sofas, eating very little, playing shows for little money; it's a wonder why anyone struggles to make it as a musician.

    Watch: New Trailer For George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Steals Stolen Art

    While it won't be in the Oscar mix both because it won't be ready and for the fact that it's, as George Clooney calls it, "a commercial, non-cynical piece of entertainment," "Monuments Men" still has the kind of star power to attract a red carpet.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor As a 1930's Jazz Musician in the New Miniseries 'Dancing on the Edge'

    There are many reasons 12 Years a Slave is so eloquent and powerful, from Steve McQueen's fluid direction to John Ridley's first-rate screenplay and the cast of actors unafraid to play some of the worst and most heroic elements of character -- but at its heart, the film rests on Chiwetel Ejiofo...
