Take a tour through our new photo gallery below to see the top 20 contenders for the 2014 Best Picture race. The order of the photos is determined by the current Gold Derby rankings for this category (from Experts, Editors, and Users).
After great critical reviews earlier this year, “Boyhood” is in the first position with 11/2 odds at this stage. It was shot over a dozen years and follows the story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) growing into a young man.
And then there’s “The Imitation Game,” this weekend’s winner at the Toronto Film Festival with the overall People’s Choice Award. It is yet another true life World War II story and stars Benedict Cumberbatch. It is tied for fifth place at 12/1 with the yet-to-be-seen “Gone Girl” from director David Fincher.
Our photo gallery also features such films as “Interstellar” (Matthew McConaughey), “The Theory of Everything” (Eddie Redmayne), “Inherent Vice” (Joaquin Phoenix), “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (Ralph Fiennes), and more.
