Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game, and James Marsh’s The Theory of Everything have all made strong cases for Oscar this week – all landed Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nods for ensemble cast and Golden Globe nods in
Last time I checked in, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave had just taken best picture, best supporting actress for Lupita Nyong’o, and best adapted screenplay for John Ridley. Of course, quite a bit has changed since then; it’s time to look ahead to this year’s Oscars, but not without

After being cruelly ripped from the breast of the 7 minutes of footage showcased at Cannes, then subjected to endless cutting and torture at the hands of vicious editors and Entertainment Tonight and finally being attached to a chain-gang of other trailers for the benefit of Prometheus, Django Unchained’s first
