Boyhood

My Oscars picks: Boyhood, Grand Budapest Hotel, Still Alice and CitizenFour

Boyhood vs Birdman. It looks like a dead heat right now.

Oscar noms surprises: where’s The Lego Movie and David Oyelowo?

Too little Lego and Selma but Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel lead the Academy Award nominations

Films: Boyhood delights with the drama it finds in everyday life

Also note a new le Carré with Philip Seymour Hoffman, a new Hercules with The Rock and a skirmish between science and metaphysics.
