"Birdman" lands in movie theaters as a formidable Oscar contender with strong support from critics (93% at Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences (A- Cinemascore), too. Happily, it also received a warm welcome when shown to voters at its official academy screening last week.

According to our Experts' predictions, "Birdman" will reap 10 nominations: Best Picture, Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), Actor (Michael Keaton), Supporting Actor (Edward Norton), Supporting Actress (Emma Stone), Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing, Production Design and Music Score. Possibly, visual effects, too.

Oscars predictions Birdman Michael Keaton Benedict Cumberbatch movies entertainment 13579086 news story.

Kris Tapley reports on Thursday's screenings of "Interstellar": "Ever the perfectionist, Christopher Nolan was on hand at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood right up until showtime, ensuring that the venue's image and sound were up to snuff before it before it was projected on 70mm IMAX for a capacity crowd that saw some late-comers turned away without a seat. The reaction was uproarious when the final credits rolled, a typically generous SAG audience offering pops of applause to the three cast members — Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain — that they knew were in attendance for a post-screening Q&A (Nolan did not stick around to discuss). And given an audience of actors, naturally the discussion revolved around performance." In Contention

eddie redmayne jack o'connell miles teller

Is Eddie Redmayne too young to win Best Actor? That question has been on my mind ever since he started generating Oscar buzz for "The Theory of Everything." It would be hard to deny his technically and emotionally grueling performance as ALS-afflicted physicist Stephen Hawking, but even though Redmayne is on the right side of 30 – he'll be 33 by the time Oscars are handed out next February – he would still be the eighth youngest winner ever in the category.
