    Oscars: Taking A Look At The Wide Open Best Supporting Actress Field

    Our Oscars coverage has, over the last few months, principally focused on the Best Picture race, which makes sense as what films look like possibilities continues to come into focus. But with the dust now settled on the festival season (well, except for the New York Film Festival getting underway to...

    Oscars: How Does Fox Searchlight's Surprise 'Hitchcock' Shake Up The Award Season?

    Surprisingly, the Toronto International Film Festival, which in years past has seen previously unregarded pictures like "The King's Speech" and "Slumdog Millionaire" break out into Oscar front-runners, didn't really provide an out-of-nowhere shocker this year. Sure, there...

    Oscars: 'The Master,' 'Silver Linings Playbook' & 'Argo' Lead Wide Open Awards Season Field

    Having covered the Oscar race in quite a bit of detail last year, it's fair to say that it wasn't the most exciting race in history. It became clear from early September onward that "The Artist" was set to be a juggernaut, and as the film swept the precursors in the run-up, it was clear that nothing...

    Oscars: Which Contenders Got Heat Coming Out Of Venice And Telluride?

    As we write this, we're somewhere over the Alps, flying back to London after an exhausting, rewarding week at the Venice Film Festival. Meanwhile, our editor-in-chief just returned from the mountains after an equally busy weekend at the Telluride Film Festival. Festival season is only just getting u...

    Can Daniel Day-Lewis Break The Spielberg Acting Awards Oscar Losing Streak For 'Lincoln?'

    With festival season getting underway in only a few short days, we're about to see which actors will gain traction for the awards season ahead of us. But there's at least one major performance that we won't know about for a few months yet (or until we see a trailer), and it's one that's probably bee...

    Oscar Watch: 10 Possible Hosts For The Next Academy Awards

    For a while, it looked like we had the 2013 Oscar host locked down. After a disappointing few years (Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin felt constrained, Anne Hathaway and James Franco were a flat out disaster, and Billy Crystal was kind of creaky last year), it seemed like we'd be getting some fresh blo...

    How 'The Great Gatsby' Bump Affects Oscar

    The biggest news Oscar-wise of the past week has involved a film that, as it turns out, won't play into the season at all, Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," which Warner Bros announced on Monday was being delayed, with the studio shifting the movie from its Christmas Day release to summer 2013. A s...

    The Amazing Race: 15 Potential Awards Dark Horses To Keep An Eye On In The Coming Months

    Almost every year, it's possible to guess at a good number of the Oscar nominees at least twelve months ahead. Only a fool would look at the release slate and suggest that a film like Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" won't be among the nominees. But that said, each year also brings a movie that looks fr...

    The Amazing Race: Is 'The Dark Knight Rises' A Serious Best Picture Contender?

    With the first wave of the TIFF line-up announced, and Venice unveiling their slate tomorrow, the promise of films not about explosions is getting ever-closer, even if we have to get through the likes of "Total Recall" first. So with the awards season just around the corner, it seemed like a good ti...
