Battle of the fantasies. “Into the Woods” makes a compelling case for Colleen Atwood again while “Maleficent” is the type of film they reward in this category. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” could come on strong as well as “The Imitation Game.” Feasibly, any of the five can win including “Mr. Turner.” Big race.
