Emmy Awards 2013

Emmy Awards 2013

While this year's Emmycast was filled with surprises, the top series awards went to the frontrunners -- red-hot drama "Breaking Bad" and laffer "Modern Family" which prevailed for the fourth year in a row.  Frontrunner Claire Danes repeated as Best Drama Actress for the sophomore season of "Homeland" but her costar, reigning champ Damian Lewis, was edged out by first-time nominee Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"). The late Henry Bromell won the writing prize for the controversial "Q&A" episode of her series while David Fincher won for directing the pilot of the online-only drama "House of Cards."  Among those Danes defeated was Kerry Washington ("Scandal") who would have been the first African American to win this category. As shocking as that is, there are two other awards yet to be won by an African American -- Best Comedy Guest Actress and Best Drama Supporting Actor. Oddly, the Emmys had Washington and African American groundbreaker Diahann Carroll ("Julia") present the latter category which went to longshot Bobby Cannavale ("Boardwalk Empire"). As expected, Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") won Drama Supporting Actress.  As "Mad Men" was denied a fifth win for Best Drama Series, it remains tied with "Hill Street Blues," "L.A. Law" and "The West Wing." Unlike those shows, "Mad Men" has yet to see any of its cast take home an Emmy. As with last year -- when it went 0 for 17 -- it was completely shut out of both the primetime and creative arts awards, losing all 13 of its bids.  As predicted, Julia Louis-Dreyfus repeated as Best Comedy Actress for the second season of "Veep." She also won this award in 2005 for the first season of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and took the supporting prize in 1996 for "Seinfeld." While Tina Fey lost this race but she shared in the comedy writing win for the series finale of "30 Rock."  And Jim Parsons picked up his third Comedy Actor Emmy in four years (2010, 2011) for his work on "The Big Bang Theory." Among those he defeated was frontrunner Louis C.K. who plays a version of himself in "Louie."  The supporting prizes in comedy went to two longshots -- Merritt Wever ("Nurse Jackie") and Tony Hale ("Veep"). While "Modern Family" was shut out of these categories for the first time, Gail Mancuso won for helming an episode of the show.  As expected, the biopic "Behind the Candelabra" won Best Movie/Miniseries and star Michael Douglas claimed Best Movie/Mini Actor for his portrayal of Liberace. Oscar champ Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic") won for directing this telefilm based on the bestelling book by Scott Thorson but adapter Richard LaGravenese lost to Abi Morgan for the axed BBC America series "The Hour."  Laura Linney won the movie/mini actress award for the truncated fourth season of her series "The Big C" and Ellen Burstyn ("Political Animals") won the supporting prize over frontrunners Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson ("American Horror Story: Asylum") respectively. However, "AHS" featured player James Cromwell did prevail as predicted.  Two perennial winners saw their streaks end as 10-time champ "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" lost Best Variety Series to its spin-off "The Colbert Report" which also won the writing award. And "The Amazing Race" lost the Reality-Competition Series race for only the second time in 11 years, this time to "The Voice."  Derek Hough ended the losing streak in the choreography category for "Dancing With the Stars" which had been bested in 10 bids over the past seven years.  Click on links below to be taken to article.  OVERVIEW Upsets abound but frontrunners 'Breaking Bad' & 'Modern Family' still win Complete list of winners: photos, text Neil Patrick Harris shines in telecast beset by filler Rewind: Episodes submitted by nominees to judges PREDICTIONS Melanie McFarland (IMDb), AJ Hammer (CNN) top experts predictions See how you did predicting Emmy winners Review predictions by: Experts, Editors, Users   VIDEOS Webcam chats with 13 Emmy champs: Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Anna Gunn ...

TCA Awards 2013

"The Americans" reaped a leading four bids for the Television Critics Assn. Awards. It contends for the top prize of Program of the Year as well as Best Drama, Drama Performance (Matthew Rhys) and Best New Series. The TCA, which is comprised primarily of print and web writers, announced its nominees for the 28th annual edition of their kudos just hours before the rival Broadcast Television Journalists Assn. bestows their awards. The TCA champs will be crowned on Aug. 3 during the summer press tour.  "Game of Thrones" won Program from the TCA last year and is back in that race this year as well as the one for drama series.  Reigning Drama Series champ "Breaking Bad" defends its title and also contends for Program and Drama Performance (Bryan Cranston). On the comedy front, "Louie" and its star Louis C.K. are looking for bookend awards.  For the first time in the history of these kudos, women outnumber men in contention for the performance prizes by six to four. Last year was the first time that they had achieved parity in these categories. Use the gray menu to the left to read overviews of the top categories.

Oscars 2013 Nominations

Last year's Oscar race was historic: for only the fourth time, Best Picture was awarded to a film not nominated for Best Director. "Argo's" ascent followed an unusually tumultuous season in which the lead seemed to change hands multiple times through the fall; "Silver Linings Playbook," "Les Miserables," and "Lincoln" all seemed like major contenders to win.

Each is for Movie of the Year as are "Silver Linings Playbook," "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises." (See complete list of nominations here.) While "Django" leading man Jamie Foxx contends for Best Male Performance, Christoph Waltz was snubbed for his Oscar-winning supporting performance. Best Actor champ Daniel Day-Lewis ("Lincoln") is also among the quintet in contention along with actor/director Ben Affleck for the Oscar-winning "Argo", Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper ("Silver Linings Playbook") and Channing Tatum ("Magic Mike").   Recent Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") and Anne Hathaway ("Les Miserables") face off for Best Female Performance. Also in the running: Mila Kunis ("Ted"), Emma Watson ("Perks of Being a Wallflower") and Rebel Wilson ("Pitch Perfect"). Wilson, an Aussie import, has been tapped to host the 22nd annual edition of these kudos on April 14. She will be the first woman to preside over this free-wheeling awardscast since Sarah Silverman back in 2007. Wilson made a splash when she appeared at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, clad in just a hot pink bikini T-shirt and munching on potato chips, to present Best Female Video alongside Brit boy band The Wanted. Despite each of the first four films in the "Twilight" franchise winning Best Movie, the final installment -- "Breaking Dawn: Part 2" -- was snubbed this year, picking up just a lone bid for Best Shirtless Moment for Taylor Lautner. Last year, "Twilight" fans showed their might after the panel of experts who determined the nominees snubbed past champs Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for their performances. Winners were still decided by popular vote and the real-life sweethearts took Best Kiss for the fourth year in a row. They are not in contention for that prize this year. Last year, "The Hunger Games" won four races, including popcorn buckets for stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson as well as Best Fight and Best Transformation (Elizabeth Banks). Johnny Depp was feted with the Generation Award while Emma Stone received the inaugural Trailblazer Award.

Emmy Awards Nominations 2013

As usual, HBO leads the Emmy Awards nominations (108) but streaming service Netflix made a dazzling debut reaping 14 bids, including Best Drama Series ("House of Cards"). HBO rebounded from last year's 81 bids to break into triple digits again. CBS and NBC are tied with 53 nominations, followed by ABC (45), Showtime (31), PBS (25) and FOX (19).  Complete List of Nominations HBO's "Game of Thrones" is first among all dramas with 16 noms, including Best Drama Series. Other rivals for that top prize are AMC's "Breaking Bad," which netted 13 nominations and "Mad Men," which set a dubious Emmy record last year when it went 0 for 17. This year, the four-time drama champ contends for 12 awards as does PBS' "Downton Abbey." Showtime's "Homeland" and stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis return to defend their Emmy crowns. The sophomore season of the political drama reaped 11 bids in all. YOU DECIDE: Who will win Emmys?  Three-time comedy winner "30 Rock" (2007 - 2009) leads all laffers, earning 13 nominations for its farewell season on NBC including a bid for Best Comedy Series. ABC's reigning three-time comedy series champ "Modern Family" defends its title with five of its six  adult cast members numbering among its dozen nominations. CBS' top-rated "The Big Bang Theory" contends in this category for a third year, netting eight nominations in total. FX's "Louie" cracked the series race, as multi-hyphenate Louis C.K. earned a record nine nominations including four of the six for this show. Two HBO sophmore laffers -- "Girls" and "Veep" -- round out the race with five noms each.  "American Horror Story" was introduced as a drama series on FX but was reclassified as a miniseries when it was revealed that each season will be distinct. It leads that genre with 17 nominations, including a bid for Best Movie/Miniseries. Its competition for that award are HBO biopics "Behind the Candelabra" (15 nominations) and "Phil Spector" (8) as well as the BBC co-production "Parades End#" (5), Sundance's "Top of the Lake" (8), USA's "Political Animals" (5) and History's "The Bible" (3).

All five Oscar nominees for Production Design are represented among the Art Directors Guild nominees. Three of them are nomininated in the Period Film category: "Anna Karenina" (Sarah Greenwood), "Les Miserables" (Eve Stewart), and "Lincoln" (Rick Carter). Rounding out that category are "Django Unchained" (J. Michael Riva) and "Argo" (Sharon Seymour). The remaining two Oscar contenders are nominated for Fantasy Film: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (Dan Hennah) and "Life of Pi" (David Gropman). They are joined by "Cloud Atlas" (Uli Hanisch and Hugh Bateup), "The Dark Knight Rises" (Nathan Crowley and Kevin Kavanaugh), and "Prometheus" (Arthur Max). None of the five nominees for Contemporary Film are up for an Oscar this year. They are "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (Alan MacDonald), "Flight" (Nelson Coates), "The Impossible" (Eugenio Cabellero), "Skyfall" (Dennis Gassner), and "Zero Dark Thirty" (Jeremy Hindle).

WGA Awards 2012

WGA Awards 2012

The Writers Guild of America revealed nominations on Friday, Jan. 4, for the 65th annual edition of its awardsfest. Because these kudos only consider scripts written under the guild's guidelines or those of several international partners, several leading Oscar contenders are missing. WGA nominees for original screenplay include Oscar contenders "Zero Dark Thirty" (Mark Boal), "Moonrise Kingdom" (Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola), and "Flight" (John Gatins). The last two slots were taken by "Looper" (Rian Johnson) and "The Master" (Paul Thomas Anderson). Only "Zero Dark" writer Boal is a previous winner at the WGA (for "The Hurt Locker"). Wes anderson and Paul Thomas Anderson are previous nominees. Four of the five Oscar contenders for Adapted Screenplay are also in contention at the WGA Awards: "Argo" (Chris Terrio) "Life of Pi" (David Magee), "Lincoln" (Tony Kushner), and "Silver Linings Playbook" (David O. Russell). Rounding out the category is "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" (Stephen Chbosky). Kushner is the only previous winner in this race; he won for the TV miniseries adaptation of his play "Angels in America." Ineligible at the WGA Award were films including "Amour," "Django Unchained," and "Beasts of the Southern Wild," which went on to receive screenwriting bids at the Oscars. Six films are nominated for Documentary Screenplay, including two Oscar nominees: "Searching for Sugar Man" (Malik Bendejelloul) and "The Invisible War" (Kirby Dick). The other four in contention are "West of Memphis" (Amy Berg and Billy McMillin), "The Central Park Five" (Sarah Burns, David McMahon, and Ken Burns), "Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God" (Alex Gibney), and "We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists" (Brian Knappenberger).

ACE Eddie Awards 2012

ACE Eddie Awards 2012

American Cinema Editors nominations include all of the frontrunners for Best Picture at the Oscars. "Argo," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty" vie on the drama side while "Silver Linings Playbook" contends for the comedy/musical cutting award. These five films are also up for Best Editing at the Oscars. Rounding out the drama slate at the Eddies is "Skyfall." The comedy/musical category also includes: "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Les Miserables," "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Ted." The winner of the Golden Eddie has proven to be one of the best indicators of which film takes home the Best Picture Oscar. Since 1990, the film that came up with the ACE went on to win the top prize at the Academy Awards 16 times. In four of the six years when the ACE barometer was wrong, the Eddie champ was at least a contender for Best Picture. That includes 2010 when the team that cut critics' darling "The Social Network" (Angus Wall, Kirk Baxter) won over the Eddies and claimed the editing Oscar as well but saw their film fall to "The King's Speech" for the Best Picture prize. In 2007, neither of the Eddie winners -- "The Bourne Ultimatum" nor "Sweeney Todd" -- made the final five at the Oscars and 1999 the same fate befell "The Matrix" and "Being John Malkovich." Though ACE has a good track record as a Best Picture predictor and a great one for forecasting who will win the Editing Oscar (18 out of 22 years), it is surprising that it is not all knowing when it comes to the Editing Oscar nominations. Since 1992, when the Eddies went to five nominees from three, 87 of the 100 Oscar nominees for Editing had first reaped a Golden Eddie nod. Last year, five of the Eddie nominees comprised the Oscar slate. In 2010,  four Eddie nominees contended at the Oscars ("127 Hours" got the fifth slot) while in 2009, only three of five ACE drama nominees -- "Avatar," "District 9" and "The Hurt Locker" -- reaped Oscar bids with "Inglorious Basterds" and "Precious" added to the mix. Although this track record appears impressive enough, ACE doubled its chances of getting it right when it split Dramas and Comedy/Musicals into separate kudos in 1999. Three years ago, the Comedy/Musical Eddie went to Stephen Schaffer for "Wall-E." Schaffer -- a 2004 nominee for "The Incredibles" -- made history with this win as it was the first time an animated film had taken one of these kudos since they were first handed out 63 years ago. Since then, the Eddies have introduced a separate Animated cateogry. This year's nominees are: "Brave," "Frankenweenie," "Rise of the Guardians" and "Wreck-It Ralph." The Eddie Awards take place on Feb. 16 at the Beverly Hilton.

PGA Awards 2012

The 10 nominees for Best Picture include eight of the Oscar contenders, including frontrunner "Lincoln" as well as "Zero Dark Thirty," "Argo," "Les Miserables," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Life of Pi," "Django Unchained" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild."  Rounding out the roster for the 24th annual edition of these awards are "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Skyfall" (#13) while the Oscars Best Picture list of nine nominees includes "Amour." The guild and Oscars have agreed on 15 of the most recent 22 Best Picture champs, including the last five in a row. Key to the import of this precursor prize is that it picks a winner using the same kind of counting as the Oscars -- the preferential ballot.  Just as the guild follows the motion picture academy's eligibility period by considering films released during the 2011 calendar year, so too it heeds to the TV academy's schedule and nominates programs airing between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011. Two-time Emmy winner "Modern Family" defends its PGA title against two-time Golden Globe winner "Glee," three-time PGA winner "30 Rock" and category newcomers "The Big Bang Theory" and "Parks and Recreation." All five of these shows were in the running at this year's Emmys.  Five of the six Emmy nominees for top drama series are also in contention for the PGA prize: reigning three-time champ "Mad Men" hopes to four-peat as it did at the Emmys against returning nominee "Dexter" and first-time contenders "Boardwalk Empire," "Game of Thrones" and "The Good Wife."  Among non-fiction programming, "The Deadliest Catch" defends its title against returning nominees "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" and "Undercover Boss" and newcomers "30 for 30" and "American Masters."  The catch-all category has been divided into separate competition and live entertainment/talk races. Last year's winner "The Colbert Report" is up against returning nominee "Real Time with Bill Maher,"  reigning Daytime Emmy champ "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "Saturday Night Live" and the Emmy-winning 2010 Tonys kudocast.  Eight-time Emmy winner "The Amazing Race" contends against 2010 Emmy winner "Top Chef," "American Idol," "Dancing With the Stars" and "Project Runway."

DGA Awards 2012

DGA Awards 2012

Only two of the five nominees for the Directors Guild of America -- Ang Lee ("Life of Pi") and Steven Spielberg ("Lincoln") -- are in contention at the Oscars. The other three DGA contenders are: Ben Affleck ("Argo"), Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables"). Spielberg's nomination is a welcome rebound after he was snubbed last year for "War Horse." Previously, Spielberg won three of his 10 bids ("The Color Purple," 1985; "Schindler's List," 1993; and "Saving Private Ryan," 1998) and last contended in 2005 for "Munich." He won Oscars for helming "Schindler's List" and "Saving Private Ryan."  Bigelow won the DGA for "The Hurt Locker" (2009), Hooper for "The King's Speech" (2010) and Lee for "Brokeback Mountain" (2005). All three went on to repeat at the Oscars. This is Affleck's first nomination. Historically, the DGA nominees have had an impressive overlap with the Oscar list. The two awards usually agree on winners too. Since the guild began handing out awards in 1949, the winning helmer has gone on to take home the Oscar with six exceptions: 1968 -- DGA to Anthony Harvey for "The Lion in Winter" and Oscar to Carol Reed for "Oliver!" 1972 -- DGA to Francis Ford Coppola for "The Godfather" and Oscar to Bob Fosse for "Cabaret" 1985 -- DGA to Steven Spielberg for "The Color Purple" and Oscar to Sydney Pollack for "Out of Africa" 1995 -- DGA to Ron Howard for "Apollo 13" and Oscar to Mel Gibson for "Braveheart" 2000 -- DGA to Ang Lee for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and Oscar to Steven Soderbergh for "Traffic" 2002 -- DGA to Rob Marshall for "Chicago" and Oscar to Roman Polanski for "The Pianist" And in the history of the DGA prize, the guild choice for Best Director has helmed the academy's pick for Best Picture 50 times. The 13 exceptions are: 1948 -- DGA to "A Letter to Three Wives" and Oscar to "Hamlet" 1951 -- DGA to "A Place in the Sun" and Oscar to "An American in Paris" 1952 -- DGA to "The Quiet Man" and Oscar  to "The Greatest Show on Earth" 1956 -- DGA to "Giant" and Oscar to "Around the World in 80 Days" 1967 -- DGA to "The Graduate" and Oscar to "In the Heat of the Night" 1968 -- DGA to "The Lion in Winter" and Oscar to "Oliver!" 1981 -- DGA to "Reds "and Oscar to "Chariots of Fire" 1985 -- DGA to "The Color Purple" and Oscar to "Out of Africa" 1989 -- DGA to "Born on the Fourth of July" and Oscar to "Driving Miss Daisy" 1995 -- DGA to "Apollo 13" and Oscar to "Braveheart" 1998 -- DGA to "Saving Private Ryan" and Oscar to "Shakespeare in Love" 2000 -- DGA to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and Oscar to "Gladiator" 2005 -- DGA to "Brokeback Mountain" and Oscar to "Crash"

BAFTAs 2012

BAFTAs 2012

"Lincoln" landed a leading 10 BAFTA nominations including Best Picture, but helmer Steven Spielberg was snubbed. Likewise for Tom Hooper who directed rival Best Picture nominee "Les Miserables," which earned nine nods. Both men were nominated by the DGA. The other three DGA contenders were cited by BAFTA for their films which round out the Best Picture race: Ang Lee ("Life of Pi," 9 bids); Ben Affleck ("Argo," 7) and Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty," 5). (See complete list of nominations here) The Best Director roster also includes Michael Haneke ("Amour," 4 noms) and Quentin Tarantino ("Django Unchained," 5). "Skyfall," which tops the UK's all-time box office, did not make the cut for Best Picture, which is limited to five unlike the Oscars which may go as high as 10. This 23rd installment in the Bond franchise numbers nods for Best British Film as well as featured players Javier Bardem and Judi Dench among its eight. That is one less than Daniel Craig's first foray as Bond in "Casino Royale" (2006) which earned him a Best Actor bid.  This year, BAFTA did away with the long lists that preceded the final nominations and restructured the nomination process to be more like that of the Oscars. Winners will be revealed on Feb. 10, right in the middle of Oscar voting.  All BAFTA members cast nomination ballots for Best Picture and the four performance prizes. Chapters (akin to the academy's branches) determined the nominees for a slew of creative categories --  Adapted Screenplay and Original Screenplay; Cinematography; Costume Design; Director; Editing; Make-Up & Hair; Original Music; Production Design; Sound; and Special Visual Effects. The membership as a whole will vote on the winners of all these races. Members could opt in to chapters and vote for the nominees and winners of the feature prizes for: Animation, British; Documentary; and Foreign-language. Last year, "The Artist" won seven of its leading 12 BAFTA bids -- Best Picture, Director & Original Screenplay (Michel Hazanavicius), Actor (Jean Dujardin), Cinematography, Costume Design and Score. It repeated in all these races but screenplay and cinematography at the Oscars.  "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," which was second with 11 nominations, had to settle for Adapted Screenplay and Best British Film. Two of the other five films up for Best Picture -- "The Descendants" (3 noms), and "Drive" (4) -- were shut out while "The Help" won just one of its five races -- Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer); she also claimed the Oscar. "The Iron Lady" won two of its three bids: Best Actress (Meryl Streep) and Makeup and repeated with both at the Oscars. Christopher Plummer ("Beginners") became the oldest BAFTA acting champ with his Supporting Actor win for "Beginnners" before doing the same at the Oscars.  "Hugo," which reaped nine nods but was snubbed in the top race, won two -- Production Design and Sound. It won both those plus Cinematography, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects at the Oscars.

Oscars 2012

"Lincoln," Steven Spielberg's historical biopic about the passing of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery, is the top nominee at the Academy Awards with 12 bids including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. "Lincoln" has swept the nominations throughout the season, also receiving the most bids at SAG, Critics' Choice, the Golden Globes, and BAFTA. It is the director's most nominated film since "Schindler's List" in 1993. To see a complete list of nominees, click here. and then see our lists of the biggest surprises and snubs. Though Spielberg has three Oscars (Director and Picture for "Schindler's," Director for "Saving Private Ryan"), no actor has ever won for his films. This year three will have a chance to break that losing streak: Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones), and Best Supporting Actress (Sally Field). "Life of Pi" follows close behind with 11 nominations, including Picture and Director (Ang Lee). Of the top Oscar nominees, it is the only one shut out of the acting categories, but the visually bold shipwreck drama earned nods in multiple craft categories, including Cinematography, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. "Silver Linings Playbook" had a surprisingly strong showing with eight bids, including Picture, Director (David O. Russell), and Adapted Screenplay. It is also nominated in all four acting races, including a surprise Supporting Actress nod for Jacki Weaver. Tom Hooper's musical adaptation "Les Miserables" earned eight nominations, well south of the 11 we forecast. It's nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (Hugh Jackman), and Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway); Hooper was snubbed in the Best Director race. Kathryn Bigelow made history in 2009 by becoming the first woman to win Best Director (for "The Hurt Locker"), but she won't have a chance to repeat for "Zero Dark Thirty." She was left out of that category this year. The film nevertheless earned five nominations, including Picture, Actress (Jessica Chastain), and Original Screenplay. Ben Affleck was another surprise omission. His latest film, "Argo," is up for a better-than-expected seven awards, including Picture, Supporting Actor (Alan Arkin), and Adapted Screenplay, but Affleck himself failed to earn a Directing nod despite much speculation that he could actually win. Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" did better than expected, with five nominations including Picture and Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz). Tarantino was not nominated for Director, but earned a bid for Original Screenplay. "Amour" earned a nomination for Foreign Language Film and is the expected frontrunner in that race. It is also up for Actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and Original Screenplay, as we predicted. But it also earned another pair of major surprise bids: Picture and Director (Michael Haneke). "Beasts of the Southern Wild" also surprised with four nominations. It is nominated for Picture, Actress, and Adapted Screenplay and Benh Zeitlin was recognized in the Best Director category. The Oscars are introducing online voting this year. Final voting takes place from Feb. 8 to Feb. 19, with the 85th Annual Academy Awards taking place on Feb. 24.   Use the gray menu to the left to see the latest Oscar predictions in the top races by our Experts, Editors and Users.
