If the opinions of members of the international chapter of Aacta are shared by Academy Awards voters, there could be a few upsets at this year.s Oscars.
Birdman won the gongs for best film, screenplay, direction (Alejandro G. Iñárritu) and lead actor (Michal Keaton) at the 4th Aacta International Awards presented at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Sunday.
That.s contrary to the Oscars bookmakers who have Boyhood at short odds for best film and its director Richard Linklater and The Theory of Everything.s Eddie Redmayne as favourites in their categories.
Julianne Moore was named best actress for her performance as a Columbia linguistics professor diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease in Still Alice, whom the bookies rate as the frontrunner ahead of Wild.s Reese Witherspoon.

I'm on God's path.
Det. Robbie Green (Jonathan Lapaglia) drinks vodka out of a shampoo container. He's got a drinking problem. His old friend and colleague, Jason (Luke Hemsworth), is mysteriously murdered in his car with the only clue being reams of digital footage on a Sd card. The footage was made by a runaway, Rachel (Hanna Mangan Lawrence), who is tracking down her sister's killer with the aid of internet pal, Aj (Alex Williams). As Green and Det. Jane Lambert (Viva Bianca)--clichéd backstory alert--follows the clues in parallel to this footage, things show themselves to be more obvious than they at first appear. Australian mystery, The Reckoning (2014), is a lot like a decently cast BBC series except without the character quirks to justify more than one episode. So, Like Thorne (2010), then.
