    I really liked Imitation Game, but I thought Keira Knightley was the one weak link in it. Not because her acting would have been terrible, but because she just doesn't make a very credible math nerd.

    I think the actor/actress winners are all pretty easy choices this year (Redmayne, Moore, Simmons, Arquette)

    Really good list of movies. No stinkers in the group unlike most years (The Theory of Everything might be a notch below the others). I'd be fine with any of the movies winning

    I really hope Ida wins *something* -- was the best movie I saw during 2014. I think it's up for Best Foreign Film and Cinematography too.

    I saw Wild Tales and it's by far the funniest sh-t I've seen in a long time. Very dark humor though. Leviathan was fantastic but incredibly depressing. Hope either wins.

    This show is tough to watch even in very limited doses.
