The 2015 Critics Choice Nominations: Get The Complete List Here
The CCMAs are selected by critics, and have no direct influence on the Oscars. But as I mentioned in the last episode of Awards Blend (our weekly Oscar podcast), recognition by groups like SAG and the BFCA only help a filmís Oscar campaign, and an omission by a key organization like the BFCA can damage a campaign (or, at the very least, set it back).

Awards Blend: Why The Golden Globes Really Matter
Thereís a lot of movement on the charts this week. Following the Golden Globes and the SAG nominations, I feel comfortable letting films that hung on as Longshots fall by the way side.

Awards Blend: The Best Actor Race Is About To Get Bloody
Someoneís going to be left out in the cold. Several very talented and deserving people, in fact. Thereís no avoiding it. There are simply too many talented actors vying for five Best Actor slots this year, so on the morning of the Oscar nominations, there could be as many as 10 worthy performers looking at the five nominees and wondering why they arenít in that exclusive group.

The Big Scene That Had To Be Cut Off Of The End Of The Imitation Game
Benedict Cumberbatch is riding high on the awards campaign trail for The Imitation Game, a sturdy WWII biopic of code breaker Alan Turing, recruited by the British to help the government crack Enigma. But the actor ALMOST did something in the movie that could have locked up the Oscar trophy.

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Do As Many Impressions As Possible In A Minute
Just when you thought it was impossible for the world to fall in love with Benedict Cumberbatch even more, he goes and does something like this. Words canít do the elegant thespianís efforts justice.

Peng-wings? Penglins? Benedict Cumberbatch possibly has the most charming idiosyncrasy as he fails to pronounce penguin.

Benedict Cumberbatch Really Wants To Play A Dumbass, Here's Why
Benedict Cumberbatch has become pretty well skilled in appearing to always be the smartest man in the room. Whether he's playing the titular detective on Sherlock or playing the villainous Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness, the British actor always appears to be 10 steps ahead of the game and can read his opponents like a book. Bbut the actor is apparently ready to break the cycle. He doesn't want to always be the smart guy anymore. He wants to be dumb.

Benedict Cumberbatch Brings His Sherlock Persona To The Brainy, Brilliant The Imitation Game
The Imitation Game, to me, takes Benedict Cumberbatchís Sherlock persona and writes it large for an awards-contending role. Thatís not a bad thing. With his mannerisms, there are roles that he is tailored to play.

Benedict Cumberbatch Is A Temperamental Genius In Imitation Game Trailers
The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch as renowned English mathematician and logician Alan Turing, who essentially turned the tide against the Germans in World War II by cracking their Enigma code. But as the trailer above hints, this was far from the only conflict brewing in Turing's life.

Benedict Cumberbatch Takes Down Nazis In First Look At The Imitation Game
Needless to say, Cumberbatch is as versatile as they come, and it sounds like he has a slew of interesting projects in the hopper to keep his fans entertained. I know very little about Turing. And Hollywoodís few attempts at telling dramatic stories about war-time codebreakers looked too much like John Woo's Windtalkers.

Matthew Goode Joins Benedict Cumberbatch For Alan Turing Biopic
Previously, it was unknown what part Knightley would be playing in Turing's life story, but now we know she's up for the role of Joan Clarke, a mathematician and cryptanalyst who worked alongside Turing during World War II. According to Andrew Hodgesís book from which Moore's script is based, Clarke had offered to marry Turing, even though she knew full-well he was gay.

Keira Knightley In Talks To Join Benedict Cumberbatch In The Imitation Game
Keira Knightley is no stranger to being a part of films that center on some of our society's most brilliant minds - having recently starred in A Dangerous Mind, a film about Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung - but her next effort will have the Oscar nominated actress moving from the world of psychology to the world of math and code cracking.

Benedict Cumberbatch Could Play Heroic Code-Cracking Mathematician Alan Turing
The project first earned buzz back in 2011, when it scored scribe Graham Moore a coveted spot on the Black List, a collection of unproduced screenplays Hollywood producers agree are exemplary. Since then the script bounced from Warner Bros to Black Bear Productions, and director J. Blakeson was replaced by Morten Tyldum. In all the shuffling, The Imitation Game also lost Leonardo DiCaprio, who was once rumored for its lead.

Headhunters Director Hired For Alan Turing Biopic The Imitation Game
The Imitation Game, a biopic about famous mathematician Alan Turing, was one of the most talked about screenplays featured on the 2011 Black List - the annual list of the most popular unproduced screenplays in Hollywood - and now it seems that the project is finally making some headway and moving towards production.

J. Blakeson In Talks To Direct Alan Turing Biopic The Imitation Game
Topping last year's The Black List, Graham Moore's The Imitation Game tells the fascinating true story of English mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing. Since the spec script about the historical figure checks off so many awards-bait boxes, it obviously received a lot of attention from some big name actors including Leonardo DiCaprio.

2011 Black List Includes Alan Turing Biopic, Chewbacca Script
This year's list includes the usual mix of genre, ranging from a biopic about World War II cryptographer and mathematician Alan Turing, all the way to a dark comedy about an embittered foreclosure victim kidnapping and planning to murder a real estate agent. The writers include a few names you'll recognize, and a lot more you won't. But given that they're showing up on the Black List...that might well change.
