"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.
While Beyonce looks like a slam dunk to win Album of the Year at this year's Grammys for her self-titled disc, she may well find herself snubbed in this top race, as was Justin Timberlake last year for his top-selling "The 20/20 Experience."

"Luke Wade seems poised to win this season with his mix of raw vocal ability and pure emotion," says Kevin Jacobsen, one of our best predictors of "The Voice."
In one of the hottest new viral videos, Brad Pitt sits down with Zach Galifianakis for a funny new interview. Appearing on the Emmy-winning "Between Two Ferns," Pitt (or Bradley Pitts as he is called), is asked about how he lost his virginity, why he doesn't shower, and if it's difficult to stay tan while living in Angelina Jolie's shadow, among other topics. Pitt's responses with mostly deadpan expressions make it "his best interview yet." Look out for a cameo from comedian Louis C.K.. Hollywood Reporter
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
Oscar frontrunner "Boyhood" got a big boost Thursday reaping a leading four bids, including Best Feature, for the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. These prizes, which are bestowed by the New York-based Independent Feature Project that salutes achievement in indie films, will be handed out on Dec. 1, just hours after the New York Film Critics Circle announce their picks for the best of the year.
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.
