After being nominated four times and walking away empty-handed, 2014 year could finally be the year Julianne Moore adds Oscar winner to her resume. The 54-year-old is emerging as the one to beat for the Best Actress award at the Academy Awards. Her unforgettable portrayal of a woman suffering from Alzheimer’s is racking up critical acclaim and accolades. She was just named Best Actress by the National Board of Review.

Taking the Best Actor honors went to Michael Keaton (Birdman) and Oscar Issac (A Most Violent Year) in a tie. Keaton is the Oscar frontrunner, but Isaac is coming on strong. Speaking of Issac, his film, A Most Violent Year, also scored Best Film honors. Check out the rest of the winners below.

“A Most Violent Year is an exhilarating crime drama with a compelling story, outstanding performances, and an elegant cinematic style,” said Annie Schulhof, NBR President. “J.C. Chandor has given us a new and provocative perspective on the American Dream.”

It was truly one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood. Yesterday, the proverbial cat was finally let out of the bag. Warner Bros. officially announced the cast of Suicide Squad, DC Comics answer to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Variety reports, the film “centers on the team of super villains who are given a chance at redemption by the government. The catch: Their mission will probably kill them all.”

“We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.” – Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman

By far, the most interesting casting decision is Jared Leto playing The Joker. After Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning turn as Batman’s enemy, any actor playing him would be a suicide mission itself. With that being said, Leto is kooky and interesting enough to show a new dimension of the archvillain. Check out who else is starring in the film below.

These three films are certainly establishing themselves as major players in this year’s Oscar race. All have been garnering attention at various critics awards. It’ll be interesting if they can maintain their momentum long enough for the Golden Globes and respective guild awards.

The 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards revealed its winners at Cipriani, Wall Street in New York City on Monday. Birdman won top honors, taking Best Feature. It’s star Michael Keaton was also recognized as Best Actor.

Julianne Moore, who’s also been racking up accolades, won Best Actress for her work in Still Alice. Meanwhile, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum were awarded with a special Gotham Jury Award for their ensemble performance in Foxcatcher.

“An ensemble, a sports team, an orchestra, it’s a sum of the parts, and it is a matter of being selfless and being generous. Channing and Mark are incredibly generous actors, and we all just wanted to make each other as good as we can be, and I think it paid off. They’re great guys, and there was a real bond between the three of us,” Carrell said of his co-stars.

Boyhood took home the Audience award. Check out all the winners below.

Tim Burton directs Amy Adams in her latest bid for Oscar glory. Big Eyes is based on a true story about famed American painter Margaret Keane (Adams). Her husband claimed credit for her work to great acclaim and fortune. After painting masterpieces in her basement, her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) would then add his signature. Things eventually became sour and the two ended up in a huge legal battle. The movie hits theaters on December 25.

Lana Del Rey’s soundtrack contribution, also named “Big Eyes,” will appear midway through the movie. It is one of two songs the 29-year-old singer recorded for the album. Her love for smoky strings, dramatic horns and sweeping production on her music will suit the film perfectly.

“The whole thing is about a woman who can’t find her voice. Lana’s song expresses what Margaret is feeling so perfectly, it’s like a soliloquy of her inner thoughts,” the film’s producer and co-writer Larry Karaszewski recently said about Del Rey’s involvement. Give the preview snippet which premiered on Yahoo a view below.

All those years of hard work are finally paying off for Richard Linklater. The director took over 12 years to film Boyhood. Along with receiving critical acclaim, it is expected to be a major player in the Oscar race. The drama is off to a good start by taking home the big prize at the 2014 New York Film Critics Circle.

Boyhood won Best Picture of the Year, along with Best Director and Best Supporting Actress for Linkater and Patricia Arquette respectively. The latter is one of the frontrunners for an Oscar at the 87th Academy Awards. Last year, the NYFCC Awards honored American Hustle and its star Jennifer Lawrence, but the film walked away with nothing come Oscar time. Check out the rest of the winners below.

After dropping 30 pounds to play a bug-eyed sociopath journalist in Nightcrawler, it appears that Jake Gyllenhaal has his Prince of Persia physique back and then some. The 33-year-old hit the gym six hours a day for six months for his upcoming role as a boxer in The Weinstein Company’s Southpaw. Dude is practically unrecognizable with his jacked up new body. He’s popping muscles from every possible part of his body.

Director Antoine Fuqua who cast Gyllenhaal has nothing but praises for him. “Two people have done this in their lives,” Fuqua said. “Robert De Niro in ‘Raging Bull’ and Denzel Washington in ‘The Hurricane.’ Those kinds of guys are rare.” Check out Jake below in a new promotional still released by the studio.

Southpaw also stars Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, Tyrese Gibson, 50 Cent and Rita Ora. The sports drama hits theaters next year.

At least that’s what I think they’re saying. It’s not exactly like I speak their language.

The adorable yellow characters from the Despicable Me spin-off get in the holiday spirit by showing off their caroling skills and human pyramid prowess. They form a gigantic tree at the conclusion of the yuletide clip. They’re so freaking cute.

Minions hits theaters on July 10, 2015. It features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and Steve Carell among others. Check out their gibberish-filled holiday greeting below.

This past week was a busy one in terms of movie studios debuting trailers for some highly-anticipated films hitting theaters next year. It’s never too early to start promoting these tentpole films. Two of them see beloved franchises returning while the third is another adaptation of a children’s classic.

Universal Pictures kicked things off by debuting the clip for Jurassic World. The film takes place twenty-two years after the events of the original film, Jurassic World is now a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). Think Seaworld but with prehistoric animals performing tricks for tourists. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are the two big marquee names going up against killer dinosaurs this time. It crashes into theaters on June 12, 2015.

Next up was Warner Bros’ upcoming adaption of the J.M. Barrie’s classic tale Peter Pan. “This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know,” teased Joe Wright. Based on the clip, he wasn’t kidding. Pan is darker and actually puts the focus on Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Peter’s friendship as they battle the villainous Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman).

Last and certainly not least is Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens from Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm. The film takes place 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Other than that, details for the highly-anticipated film have been kept under wraps. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher reprise their iconic roles for the seventh installment. It storms into theaters on December 18, 2015.

While Jackman does his best Johnny Depp circa Pirates of the Caribbean impression, I’m looking most forward to Jurassic and Star Wars. Both have a lot to live up to given the last film in each respective franchise. Based on the first trailers, both look very promising. Love that each film gives a nostalgic nod to the original movies. If you missed any of the trailers given the holidays, give them a whirl below and weigh in afterward.
