    This year seems to have three acting categories locked, Moore, Simmons and Arquette, and all of them play fictional characters.

    In Best Actor, Michael Keaton appears to be the favorite, especially since he is the only actor nominated who plays a fictional character.

    Could this be the first year since 1997 (Nicholson, Hunt, Williams, Basinger) where all of the acting winners portrayed fictional characters?

    Yes, probably, and thank god so. There were altogether too many movies this year based on a true story. It will be nice to send a message that says “you know, you can win Oscars for playing fictional people too.”

    I hope not because I think Redmayne deserves to win a lot more than Michael Keaton.

    Considering how much they seem to love biopics this year (nominating five of them for BP), I doubt it.

    Only 4 are biopics.

    Pretty please. 

    But 1997 was virtually biopic free in the acting categories (only Judi Dench and Anthony Hopkins) which can hardly be said for this year’s bunch. Then again, it seems like there’s only one category where a biopic performance has a real chance of winning, and that’s Best Actor.
