Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone unveiled the Oscar nominations last Thursday. MacFarlane will also host the ceremony, which takes place on Feb. 24, but with several major organizations still doling out nods and wins, the Oscar race is far from over since voters have until Feb. 19 to turn in

James Bond got dark, Emma Watson
Three years after crafting the ultimate revenge fantasia in the bloody revisionist masterpiece Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino tops himself with Django Unchained, a spaghetti western that finds the freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) wandering the antebellum South alongside German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in search of his wife,
Each of the top eight races boasts a front-runner or two, but what about the other three or four nominees in each race? It’s both a frustrating change of pace and a welcome one. It makes predicting the Oscars more difficult, but it also makes pinpointing the season a bit more exciting, doesn’t it?

We’re at the point where it’s better to throw in and summarize some official predictions, updating them as we move along, than to summarize the events of the week.
