Zoe Kazan deserves Best Actress consideration for “The Monster”

There are no shortages of talented young actresses who aren’t getting their due in Hollywood. We know that. For my money though, no one is as underrated and deserving of acclaim as Zoe Kazan. She has been doing really compelling work for years now, but always seems to be stuck[...]

“Arrival” is an emotional and smart science fiction Oscar contender

It’s no secret that science fiction has a hard time at the Academy Awards. This year, the latest contender to hopefully buck that trend in a notable way is Arrival, which pairs director Denis Villeneuve with star Amy Adams. It hits theaters this week and is an interesting mix of[...]

Which films could wind up the precursor favorites?

Folks, we’re approaching the onset of precursor awards (also, it’s Election Day today, and please go vote). That glut of honors among the various critics groups and such will be our next clue as to how the Oscar season might shape up. Obviously, these don’t have a direct correlation with[...]

Hollywood Contenders: New Oscar Predictions for Early November

We’re knee deep in November. Wow. The time just flies, doesn’t it? I saw that every month, but it still feels true. This is the big month too, with many of the biggest awards hopefuls hitting theaters. Now, December is obviously true crunch time as well, but I have a[...]
