Every year around this time It starts again. The studios send out their screeners in hopes that they will get the award votes. And each year these screener copies find their way online. And it is a happy time for cinephiles everywhere.
I must admit, I had given up on the Hollywood Silly Season leaks. Because every year for at least ten years back, there has always been a leak before December 16th. You probably remember last year’s spree of screeners released by the Hive-CM8 group. Oh what a time it was.
Later it was alleged that the leak came from the talent agency Innovative Artists which was later sued by Warner Bros.
This year, however, things have been completely dead on the screener front. Many have been sent out off for review,but the first have yet to leak to the public……
This has been mega tough. The Best Picture race has been near impossible to call. But the fact that Birdman was not nominated for Best editing is what sealed my prediction in the end. I still think Birdman is the better film, but I can´t let that sway my prediction. But i would vote for Birdman !! And Michael Keaton !!
