Yesterday we looked at 25 Best Original Screenplay contenders and today we turn our attention to Best Adapted Screenplay. The field here isn't as big, boasting 17 total contenders right now, but perhaps after looking over the list you'll think of a couple contenders I may have overlooked. For the time being my top five is set and at this point they really are the most obvious five though I'm sure the title I have at #6 is one many will believe deserves a spot among the top five early contenders for a nomination. Let's take a look at my five and then please share your thoughts in the comments below... 1.) George Clooney and Grant Heslov (Monuments Men) - Clearly my early year favorite is Clooney's Monuments Men. The World War II setting and the talent involved make it too obvious the choice. That said, I plan on reading Robert M. Edsel and »

Being an Oscar prognosticator for over a half decade now, I’ve developed some odd habits. One of the things that I do that I know makes people question my sanity is posting my Oscar predictions for the another season as soon as the previous one has ended. I like getting a jump on things and actually started organizing contenders for the 2014 show a few months ago, but unless you’re as hardcore a film junkie as me, that’s crazy-talk.
My super-early predictions are hit and miss, though last year I’m proud to say that I was one of the first to predict Argo and also had three other eventual Best Picture nominees in my initial predix (Django Unchained, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty, in case you were wondering). That being said, I also had The Dark Knight Rises, and that wound up being shut out. »

Looking forward to a new year of movies and attempting to come up with a list of films I'm most anticipating is never a simple proposition. In compiling this year's list of fifty there were 230 film titles I looked at, some a little more seriously than others, but nonetheless, it wasn't a small list of films. As a result, not everything could make the list. Note: I have included a navigation to browse all five lists directly below as well as at the end of this post for easy navigation. Most Anticipated 2013 Navigation #1-10 | #11-20 | #21-30 | #31-40 | #41-50 Some of the films just missing the top fifty include Zal Batmanglij's The East, Spike Jonze's Her starring Joaquin Phoenix, the horror film You're Next, which first premiered in 2011 and is finally being released this year, and Devil's Knot as the story of the West Memphis Three continues, only this »
