2015 Oscar Predictions Update: Hello Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Agita

EmmaStone_BirdmanTelluride is just about over, Venice is coming to an end, Toronto begins on Thursday, and NYFF starts screenings in two weeks to the press.  David Cronenberg’s Map to the Stars is said to have a push back, Birdman is a sure-fire contender, and The Imitation Game looks to be a solid ticket for Benedict Cumberbatch.

For an Oscar prognosticator, all this is pretty hard to keep track of.  I’ve taken the liberty of updating several of the categories including all the majors, and a few of the techs.  I’ve stayed heavy on Birdman for the time being while Morten Tyldum’s Alan Turing biopic has moved up considerably in a few places.  We have some speculation and thoughts that Steve Carell could have a sure-fire path to a Best Supporting Actor win if he chooses to do so for Foxcatcher.

There are so many thoughts but you can see all that in the commentary section of each contender.  Check out the latest updates to the Oscar Predictions.  I’m stressed out by all this speculation and it’s only September.  Include your thoughts and predictions in the comment section.  You can also listen to our super-sized Power Hour where we breakdown the entire race thus far.
