Oscars news: 'Interstellar' advances in Best Picture race, 'Imitation Game' retreats one week
29 October 2014 3:56 AM, PDT
. Pete Hammond offers his take on "Interstellar": "The Best Picture category was made for films of this scope, ambition and achievement. And it is largely CGI-less, a rare move for epic movies of this scope, which should impress filmmakers. The major computers used for this film are on screen more than off.
