Oscar Pool Shrinks As 'Grace of Monaco' Bumped To Spring, 'Wolf of Wall Street' Debates Move To 2014

The recent talk around TIFF and Venice ushered in a seasonal change, away from the flurry of big-budget tentpoles and into the onslaught of Oscar talk. “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity” were the big names coming out of those two festivals for awards consideration, but while the other studios are by no means backing down in terms of pushing their hopeful entries, the rush to the finish line has made one remove their film from the race completely, and another possibly face the same fate with Martin Scorsese's latest.

The recent talk around TIFF and Venice ushered in a seasonal change, away from the flurry of big-budget tentpoles and into the onslaught of Oscar talk. “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity” were the big names coming out of those two festivals for awards consideration, but while the other studios are by no means backing down in terms of pushing their hopeful entries, the rush to the finish line has made one remove their film from the race completely, and another possibly face the same fate with Martin Scorsese's latest.

HitFix reports that Scorsese's collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” is hustling toward completion as the director assembles a (typically lengthy) first cut. Paramount execs supposedly screened a version over the weekend, but with an initial release of November 15th coming up quickly, a date bump may seem a necessary option. December could give the filmmaker and the studio enough time to properly finish, along with keeping to the initial wave of marketing starting with its brilliant first trailer; however, Paramount's move of “Shutter Island” from October 2009 to February 2010 brought in $130 million upon release, and that fact might slow 'Wolf' out of Oscar contention. 

Paramount isn't the only studio planning a move out of November: The Weinstein Company have announced (via THR) that they plan to take “Grace of Monaco,” their Nicole Kidman-led biopic on actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly, out of the Oscar race and into Spring 2014. Initially touted at Cannes and set for a November 27th date—and promoted early at Cannes with an eye on the awards season—the Olivier Dahan-directed film needs more time to be completed, according to TWC, and as such will be positioned as a commercial entry rather than an awards one. Which may mean a director's cut released a week after its release, depending on how much Harvey Weinstein needs the sale.
