Forum Oscar Poll Results – December 2014

forum-oscar-poll-results

What a difference a month makes! With December being such a busy period of industry and critics awards cramming into a space of about two weeks, you’re gonna see some big changes in December’s predictions. With the Oscar nominations less than two weeks away we’ll have another update for you just before that. As usual, you can always be a part of the vote right here in our forums!

Right now, take a look at some of the big movers going up like The Grand Budapest Hotel in Best Picture and Best Director, Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) in Best Actor and Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night) in Best Actress. You’ll also spot some precipitous drops from Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. Both films have been yo-yo’s this season but being on the downward spiral right in the middle of Oscar voting is not the place you want to be.
