Listen, we love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They're two smart, funny women and when brought together, they usually have Voltron-like comedy powers. Their Golden Globes hosting gigs have been a blast, and generally, put them in a room and they'll be the funniest people in it. But taking on "Star Wars: Episode 7"? Good luck.

Foxcatcher
Just as soon as the first trailer for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" dropped last fall, it was promptly yanked offline, and the scheduled December 20th release date taken off the calendar. Was this the case of a troubled production? The official line was that the director wanted more time to finish the movie, and whatever went on behind-the-scenes, it looks like everyone involved is pleased with the result because this one is headed for the biggest film party of them all.

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

6 Movies Pushed Into 2014
Movies are dropping like flies from the Oscar season this year. Or rather, that seems to be the conventional wisdom out there as a handful of pictures have moved out of the awards season, switched dates or been punted into 2014. And you’ve heard time and time again that it’s a crowded season this fall and winter. And it is, but it’s really no more crowded than any other year -- this prestige season is always busy and there are always casualties and movement. Sure, the Oscar landscape is changing, and there’s been seismic shifts under our feet. George Clooney’s “Monuments Men” is now landing in February, what everyone thought was a surefire Oscar nominee in “Foxcatcher” has moved to unknown lands in 2014 and several other pictures thought to be 2013 Academy contenders have also adjusted plans.

2013 Fall Film Preview, Her, American Hustle, Counselor
With this week feeling, release-wise, a little like the industry at large is taking a deep breath while effecting the gear change from Summer tentpole scheduling to awards season programming, it’s a good moment to pause and take a look at the goodies to come in the waning months of 2013. It’s a pretty stellar lineup, as films we've seen throughout the festival year start to make their way into awards-friendly end-of-year slots, vying with films we haven't yet seen but have been patiently, and in some cases pantingly, looking forward to for months now. In fact the lineup is so stellar that for the purposes of whittling down a manageable list of the films we're most anticipating, we made the decision to exclude anything that features in our Most Anticipated Toronto Internatioal Film Festival list just to narrow the field a little.

With Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" entering the Oscar fray it's time for Sony Pictures Classics to start hustling the picture, but it seems that not everyone in their starry cast — which includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller — will be immediately recognizable. Yes, that's Steve Carell, and he's got a new prosthetic nose.
