Gravity and 12 Years a Slave have catapulted to the top of predictions following the unanimous acclaim for both films from the fall festivals. American Hustle and Captain Phillips are not far behind, followed closely by Inside Llewyn Davis and The Wolf of Wall Street. Struggling to maintain in the bottom half are Fruitvale Station, Nebraska, Blue Jasmine and August: Osage County.[visualizer id=”1892″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
Cuarón and McQueen maintain their stranglehold on this category. Russell also remains a top contender, hot off the Oscar success of Silver Linings Playbook, as does Greengrass, for his upcoming high seas drama. The announcement of The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Christmas debut puts director Martin Scorsese in fine shape with the forum votes.[visualizer id=”1893″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
A consensus appears to have formed around four actors in this category: Ejiofor, Redford, McConaughey, and Hanks. Ejiofor and McConaughey have been buoyed by rapturous acclaim for their films and performances out of the fall festival circuit. Redford remains the front-runner for many, despite a worrisome box office start. DiCaprio and Jordan round out the only possible choices, according to the forum members. Interestingly, The Wolf of Wall Street has rebounded in all categories here except for DiCaprio in Best Actor.[visualizer id=”1894″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
A bump in the road for Amy Adams here as she falls heavily out of favor, making room for Emma Thompson and even French breakout Adèle Exarchopoulos to round out a top five that seems locked with Blanchett, Bullock, Streep and Dench. Could we see a category full of winners like Best Supporting Actor was earlier this year? Will Adams be pushed to Supporting if she’s deemed unable to compete with these heavyweights?[visualizer id=”1891″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
This category continues to be dominated by Fassbender and Leto with no one appearing a worthy competitor. Cooper is definitely in the mix here. Jonah Hill makes a strong comeback here due to the announcement of The Wolf of Wall Street coming this holiday season while Daniel Brühl plummets in the wake of Rush‘s box office car crash.[visualizer id=”1890″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
Nyong’o and Winfrey continue to dominate here but Nebraska’s June Squibb marks a spot in 3rd place and Julia Roberts just behind after what looks will be a supporting push for the Best Actress Oscar-winning star. The most recent Best Actress winner, Jennifer Lawrence, looks prime for yet another nomination (her third in just four years) and former stronghold Octavia Spencer makes the grade for a fifth place finish for the month.[visualizer id=”1889″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
Blue Jasmine and Inside Llewyn Davis have this category on lock, with American Hustle their closest competitor. Fruitvale Station, an early favorite here, is struggling, with Her and Nebraska taking over its place in the top 5.[visualizer id=”1888″] (hover over the graph for more details…)
12 Years a Slave destroys all here with a perfect score of 100%. Before Midnight isn’t too far behind and The Wolf of Wall Street pulls up the rear of the top 3. After that is a mad scramble for two spots that could go to anyone.
