  • Is “Birdman” the frontrunner for the Oscar?  What does it mean for Michael Keaton?
  • Foxcatcher” is still strong.  Is there a possibility that Steve Carell moves campaigns to supporting?
  • Is Benedict Cumberbatch this year’s Colin Firth for “The Imitation Game?”
  • Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater” debut to solid reviews.  Will it make a dent in the race?
  • Is Reese Witherspoon our first legit Best Actress contender for “Wild?”
