Anna Karenina Keira Knightley entertainment news

Keira Knightley's partnership with director Joe Wright has yielded impressive Oscar results. Their hip retelling of "Pride and Prejudice" (2005) bagged four nominations, including a spot on the Best Actress list for Knightley. Next came "Atonement" (2007) with seven bids – one for Best Picture.

Now comes a fantastical retooling of Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" that is "a big gamble," Knightley confesses in our chat, alluding to its bizarre perspectives. "It is a theatrical telling. It is a fantasy world. It's not 18th century Russia. It's not naturalistic. But the whole thing is a very exciting thing to watch. I can definitely say, 'I've never seen anything like it.' So it's an event movie."

So what does she think of "Anna's" gathering Oscar buzz? Four of our Gold Derby's Oscarologists predict it will be nominated for Best Picture and nine say Knightley will be nominated for Best Actress.

"It was such a massive gamble in the way that the whole team has chosen to tell the story that, to get this time of the year and there is Oscar buzz around it, is absolutely phenomenal. The fact that there is Oscar buzz means that people are saying, 'Hey, you did a good job' even if we don't get any nominations."
