Wow. There are a lot of great film to look forward to next year. Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, David O. Russell, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Tom Hooper, Stephen Frears, Joel/Ethan Coen, Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog, Gus van Sant, Terrence Malick, and Ridley Scott all have films in the mix.
The big story though is the release of a 40 year-old film written/directed by Orson Welles. So we could potentially have a strong line-up of contenders.
Again, this early on most of these predictions are guided by the talent attached to the project (both on and off camera), the potential release dates, and the distribution. Because it is so early we only have Best Picture, Directors, and the acting categories predicted. Take from these what you can to make your own predictions as well!

With “Interstellar’s” reviews not quite being raves, it has been knocked down a few levels. The close we draw to the end of the year, the safer films like “Boyhood,” “The Imitation Game,” “Birdman,” and “The Theory of Everything” look.
There are still some movies to be seen. “Unbroken” has a lot of potential. Others would include “A Most Violent Year,” “The Gambler,” “Selma,” and “Into the Woods.”
So here is where we are right now. After the jump, we have our ranked listings for all of the contenders. Click the “More” links to expand on the category and see other potential contenders.

Now that all the big summer blockbusters are simmering down, we can begin to settle into the warmth of studios putting their best films on display to garner awards-attention. December is jam-packed this year, and many potentially great movies have yet to even produce a trailer.
What we have put together here is a list of ten films that are either receiving too little advertisement, or no advertisement at all. However, some have been seen at festivals and given strong reviews, and others have a lot of potentially gifted talent both in front of and behind the camera.
So here are our Top 10 Upcoming 2014 Films you may not have heard of, but should of, keep in mind with such little advertisement so close to release, sometimes studios push their films forward into next year, a lot of films on this list could have that happen to them at any given moment.
You wouldn’t think it, but there is a significant different in the mind of an Academy voter and a Hollywood Foreign Press voter. To end an excellent festival, “The Imitation Game” went home with the TIFF Audience Award. One of the runner-up films was “St. Vincent” another Weinstein film that should farewell in the comedy categories at the Globes.
We went ahead and updated everything, including television categories as we start seeking into a new Fall season for shows.

Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Last Updated: 03/09/14
“Sin City” was visually dazzling. This movie also looks great. Problem is it has been 10 years since the first movie. I feel like I would’ve been more excited for this sequel if it was 2007 or 2008. “Sin City” didn’t really have a memorable story, but goddamn I can’t forget how impressive the film looked. Will definitely see this one.
We hear about potentially great films every day this time of year. And while the box office is slugging out many unfavorable films, we like to look ahead to the potentially great ones. 2015 Oscar Predictions will be updated as soon as the 2014 Oscar Ceremony closes its curtains. For now we have the 2015 Golden Globe Predictions.
