    Is it just me or is the Lead Actor category more competitive for Comedy/Musical than it is for Drama? Granted, I haven't seen most of these films.

    Well maybe real-world quality-wise, but in terms of awards momentum, Keaton is definitely taking C/M while it could really be any of the men in Drama. (Most likely Cumberbatch. Oyelowo is newer, more of a dark horse pick.)

    I've only seen Foxcatcher, Nightcrawler, and Grand Budapest out of all those actors' films though.
    Last 11 things I really enjoyed:

    Speed Racer (Wachowski/Wachowski, 2008)
    Safe (Haynes, 1995)
    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Parker, 1999)
    Beastie Boys Story (Jonze, 2020)
    Bad Trip (Sakurai, 2020)
    What's Up Doc? (Bogdanovich, 1972)
    Diva (Beineix, 1981)
    Delicatessen (Caro/Jeunet, 1991)
    The Hunger (Scott, 1983)
    Pineapple Express (Green, 2008)
    Chungking Express (Wong, 1994)

    I would be shocked if Keaton loses the Golden Globe. In the Oscar derby I think he has some competition with Steve Carell, but Birdman has a lot more momentum at this point.

    What about Oyelowo?

    Oscars go apeshit for actors playing historical figures.

    Yes, but Oyelowo has some competition in that genre (Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne).

    Is that the dude from the Wu Tang Clan? (Incidentally, I really don't know who Eddie Redmayne is. I think 2014 will turn out to be the year when I officially become an old man who doesn't understand pop culture references and therefore continues alluding to Third Eye Blind in everyday conversation like it was still 1997.)
    Just because...

    And even your 1997 pop culture references are incorrect since Redman was never an official Wu Tang Clan member. GET IT TOGETHER BABY DOLL.

    Carell is being nominated as supporting, no?

    I don't know how familiar you are with Rex Reed's writings, but I've heard this song many a time before. Here's a guy with tastes so conservative and is so utterly lacking in curiosity that he makes the average Academy voter look like David freakin' Bordwell, so I'm not surprised that he didn't like Under the Skin or that he loved The Theory of Everything. (I am a little surprised that he liked The Grand Budapest Hotel but unfortunately he doesn't have anything interesting to say about it.)
