2014CitizenfourSnowdenArtificialEyeOscar: Full Updated Predictions – November

We have fully updated all of our Oscar Predictions. Now including the categories: Original Song, Documentary Feature, and Foreign Feature.

With “Interstellar’s” reviews not quite being raves, it has been knocked down a few levels. The close we draw to the end of the year, the safer films like “Boyhood,” “The Imitation Game,” “Birdman,” and “The Theory of Everything” look.

There are still some movies to be seen. “Unbroken” has a lot of potential. Others would include “A Most Violent Year,” “The Gambler,” “Selma,” and “Into the Woods.”

What did we learn from Cannes? It may not have taken home the Palme, but “Foxcatcher” now looks like our front-runner for many Oscars.
