    You can predict Best Picture for the PGA in our predictions center. Hurry! They announce on Monday.

    It appears “Boyhood”, “Birdman”, “Selma” and “The Imitation Game” are safe.

    I think “The Theory of Everything” is in because it is very well liked in the industry and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is also on pretty solid ground, especially since they nominated “Moonrise Kingdom” so they are known to respond to Wes Anderson’s sensibilities.

    So that leaves four spots open. “Gone Girl” was a hit and they like David Fincher’s work as they nominated “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. “Whiplash” is the praised independent film that didn’t find an audience and its supporters won’t forget about it.

    For the final two spots, things get tricky. I think “Nightcrawler”, “Foxcatcher” and “Unbroken” are in the running, but they could easily miss.

    Also, I’m not sure it’s wise to dismiss “Interstellar” and “Into the Woods” but it’s clear they have to overcome a mixed response.

    Nightcrawler will definitely get in here – it’s a producer’s dream. A small film, very low-budget that got terrific reviews, award nominations and a big financial success that made its budget back nearly 4.5 times. Ditto Grand Budapest Hotel.

    They always nominate the low-budget indies that make big money (Blue Jasmine, Moonrise Kingdom, Kids Are All Right, Precious, Juno, even gave the win to Little Miss Sunshine).

    Interesting point. I hadn’t really thought about its relative financial success. It certainly helps, but I’m not sure there’s a general perception that it’s a hit. I also feel like the other movies you mention had exposure to a wider audience and were better known.

    In any case, I’m inclined to include it. It will have to fight for its nomination though. 

    I see it hasn’t fared very well at the Predictions Center. Also I am rethinking my initial reservations about “Interstellar” which has done very well in predictions. Am I overestimating the hurdle caused by the mixed reaction? Many people were disappointed but the scope of the production could help it secure a spot.

    I’m guessing Paramount is still suffering from not knowing what they had on their hands until late in the game and not having the capabilities of getting Selma screeners out. How unfortunate, given that it’s a stronger film than any of the ones nominated that I’ve seen (all but Sniper).

    R.I.P, Interstellar.  And welcome to a bunch of boxoffice stiffs aside from Gone Girl.

    Very happy to see Gone Girl, Whiplash, Grand Budapest Hotel, and even Nightcrawler and Foxcatcher. The inclusion of the last two and Gone Girl shows that they might be warming up to these darker, edgier films.

    So you just want a bunch of Box Office successes instead of them actually picking the best movies? Transformers made about as much money as Interstellar. Sometimes the people are wrong.

    Selma is still getting that Best Picture nomination. Come what may.
