    I know one thing – I’m gonna be terribly torn if it’s down to Nolans vs. Wes Anderson.

    Is Birdman really a front runner? It looks interesting, and has a great cast lined up, but I don’t know if it really has that much awards potential. Also, wouldn’t Exodus be an Adapted Screenplay?

    Don’t rule out Bruce Wagner for Maps to the Stars, which is apparently some kind of satire on the entertainment industry. Then again it is David Cronenberg, who is hardly Oscar-friendly.

    The Imitation Game is credited as being based on a biography according to Wikipedia, which isn’t reliable but neither is IMDb.

    It’s all guessing at this point but as Inarritu is behind “Birdman”, then at least it should be widely watched.

    Yep, “Exodus” and “The Imitation Game” will be in adapted. My bad. Thanks for catching that. “Maps to the Stars” added above.

    Even at this point, I think its between Interstellar, Magic in the Moonlight, and Wes Anderson.

    Woody Allen tends not to make 2 acclaimed films in a row these days, so I wouldn’t bet on Magic in the Moonlight.

    Usually not but we have to remeber that he has more wins (3) and more nominations (16!) than anyone else in this category. Therefore, he still is a contender on paper at least until the movie comes out and it turns out not to live up to his name this time. Still, he already has better track record than he had in 2000s. Pros of “Magic…” are fresh cast full of great names and period setting in France which already turned out to be successful once.

    He’ll always be a potential nominee. Allen like Meryl Streep is an easy default for the voter bloc.

    For every Vicky Cristina there’s a Whatever Works, and every Midnight in Paris there’s a To Rome with Love. And they tend to alternate, so by that logic his follow-up to Blue Jasmine would not be well received. But Magic in the Moonlight looks fairly awards-baity on paper with its 1920s France setting, so who knows.

    Great thread. Reading some of the potential players makes me feel rather anxious. My favorite genres are up there. Speaking of which, what chance do the Wachowskis’ have for Jupiter Ascending? When have they written a bad screenplay? (please dont answer this, Icky).

    I see some of the Cloud Atlas cast are here again. And we have Sean Bean. Will he die in this do you think, like he does in almost everything he’s in? Lol.

    Yes I’m a dreamer but I’d hate to see this go the way of Cloud Atlas.

    Sight unseen I’d agree with the front runners list. Highly probable.  So far, The Grand Budapest Hotel needs to be there.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel will take this.

    And why don’t we have a poll here?

    Cause it’s way too early to narrow the field down to 10 contenders. 

    RE: Wachowskis – If they didn’t get in with “Matrix”, I don’t know if they ever will. But of course, as of right now, they have equally good shot as the rest.

    I’m hoping that all the best picture frontrunners are adapted screenplays, freeing up the original category for either Boyhood or Grand Budapest to win.
