Oscar Race Round-Up: Updated Oscar Predictions – OSCARS
The week is almost over at The Awards Circuit, but what a week it was! On top of Editor-in-Chief Clayton Davis’ updated Oscar Predictions, the New York Film Critics Circle, National Board of Review and Boston Online Film Critics Association had quite a lot to say in regards to this highly competitive awards season. Considering this film was wrapped in secrecy since the start of the year, it’s both crazy and exciting that Zero Dark Thirty has become the first “frontrunner” of the Oscar race. Those quotes are there for a reason — the film remains number one because of the recent onslaught of award dominance, but this is still any film’s prize for the taking…and that’s what makes this year’s award season the most exciting one in ages.
On the most recent episode of Power Hour, the staff takes a full dive into the Oscar categories now that predictions have been updated, and Clayton also reveals which adapted films made the Top 13 on Academy Idol. Subsequently, the announcement of the Wild Card show is made, which includes one saved film from each staff writer. The results of the Wild Card voting are found here (fair warning: blockbuster aficionados, grab some Kleenex before watching). If you have not yet submitted your questions for today’s “Power Hour” episode, you’ll be able to ask them LIVE, as we’ll be joined by recent National Board of Review winner Ann Dowd, who won “Best Supporting Actress” for her role in Magnolia Pictures’ Compliance.
Our most recent film reviews are as follows: Zero Dark Thirty, The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, Hyde Park on Hudson and Les Miserables. Traveling across the stars and into our very own site are two brand new teasers of the upcoming Star Trek into Darkness.
