Sasha Stone takes us inside "last night’s packed academy premiere for 'The Theory of Everything'" and reports "it became clear that Eddie Redmayne has a good chance of unseating the two frontrunners in the Best Actor race, Michael Keaton for 'Birdman' and Benedict Cumberbatch for 'The Imitation Game.' The way the Best Actor race usually works is that it’s inextricably linked to Best Picture. This is the case almost every year but especially lately. The winning Best Actor is almost always in a Best Picture contender and when he isn’t he’s usually an overdue veteran whose number has at last come up." Awards Daily

No SAG Award has a more complicated history with Oscar than Best Supporting Actress. Neither supporting category is as reliable at predicting the academy's choices as the lead races, but Supporting Actress has the lowest rate of overlap for nominees of any of the acting categories. As for the rate of winners, that's a longer story.

Oscars Interstellar Matthew McConaughey Imitation Game Benedict Cumberbatch movies entertainment 13579086 news story.

Pete Hammond offers his take on "Interstellar": "The Best Picture category was made for films of this scope, ambition and achievement. And it is largely CGI-less, a rare move for epic movies of this scope, which should impress filmmakers. The major computers used for this film are on screen more than off. I would be surprised if Oscar voters left their love for this only to technical categories as they did all those years ago with '2001'."  Deadline

The SAG Awards and Oscars usually match closely when it comes to the individual acting awards, though not so much when it comes to SAG's Ensemble race and Oscar's Best Picture, which agree less than half of the time. But there has been plenty of room for surprises in Best Supporting Actor.

dancing with the stars dwts alfonso ribeiro lea thompson

The appeal of "Dancing With the Stars" is watching celebs try their hand at a skill they're unfamiliar with. Sometimes the stars surprise us with their natural rhythm, while other stars ... don't. Then there are contestants who have past training or experience that gives them an unfair advantage against their amateur rivals, like Broadway vet Alfonso Ribeiro. Sure, our users are predicting he will win the mirrorball trophy but should he even be allowed to compete?
