    I think this year’s schedule might hinder Inherent Vice’s and Exodus’ chances, but could be just fine then and perhaps even enhance the chances for both Gone Girl and Interstellar in the Best Picture race.

    And then there’s Unbroken, which is currently scheduled to come out on Christmas Day, just 4 days before Oscar voting starts. Hmm….

    This year’s race felt endless. even with the extra couple of weeks, the old holiday platform release strategy couldn’t work. Personally, I would like to see the season cut down another couple of weeks. (The downside is that it would be bad for the blogs/trades.) For those of us in megaplex-land, one result of the shorter season has resulted in a much better fall.
