With "Gravity" now charging into the Oscars as highly touted frontrunner, here's a video that will bring it somewhat back to Earth. The folks at Screen Junkies have dropped another one of their Honest Trailers, and as always, it's pretty amusing stuff.

Gravity and 12 Years A Slave
After a few weeks off from awards ceremonies, the two-week homestretch of the season, ahead of the Oscars two weeks from now, gets underway tonight with the 2014 BAFTA Awards. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts have, in recent years, become an increasingly convincing predictor of which way the Academy will go, though as ever, there's always some differences (last year, for instance, saw "Amour" star Emmanuelle Riva take Best Actress).

Gravity, Cuaron
It seems that every promotional tour these days has to feature a stop at the internet’s front page. Best Director nominee Alfonso Cuarón was the latest to visit Reddit for an AMA where the “Gravity” helmer was given the opportunity to respond to the scientific community’s reactions to his films, give his take on the future of the industry and tease a dark alternate ending to the Best Picture nominee.

Gaspar Noé Says 'Gravity' Is "Incredibly Mind-F*cking"

Gravity, Cuaron
We're less than a month away from the Oscars, and yet "Gravity" is still the topic of much discussion. Granted, much of that chatter has been positive with the movie picking up continued buzz and awards in the race to Oscar night. Then there are folks like Louis C.K. who nitpick the physics of the movie and other minor details without seeing the big picture. And then there's "Irreversible" and "Enter The Void" director Gaspar Noé. Read More »

Gravity
With Academy voters entering their ballots next week and the actual ceremony less than a month away, the Oscar race is drawing to a close. No doubt hoping to sway some votes—along with advertising its home video release later this month—one of the visual effects companies behind the striking imagery in Best Picture-hopeful “Gravity” has dropped a short reel breaking down the work behind a harrowing sequence towards the end of the film.

While pundits, critics, prognosticators and more have all weighed in on the Oscar season movies, leave it to Louis C.K. to be the most vociferously vocal about the movies he didn't like this year. And two in particular certainly raised the ire (and hilarity) of Louis C.K.

The Directors Guild Of America (DGA) announced its 2014 award winners last night and, perhaps to no one’s surprise, Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón won the top directing prize for “Gravity.” A spectacular visual achievement that took four years to make, Cuarón was arguably the frontrunner for some time, but the competition was tough and included Martin Scorsese for “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” David O. Russell for “American Hustle,” Steve McQueen for “12 Years A Slave” and “Captain Phillips”-helmer Paul Greengrass.

Gravity 12 Years A Slave
The PGA Awards have been viewed as the most reliable predictor of the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner, and with good reason. Over the last 24 years, the Academy and PGA winner for Best Picture have matched 17 times, and more crucially, the last 6 times in a row. But what went down last night at the PGA Awards certainly won't be duplicated in March at the Dolby Theater.

2014 Oscar Nominations: 'American Hustle' Leads The Pack With 10 Nominations, 'Gravity' & '12 Years A Slave' Get 9 Each

American Hustle
Well, that's a wrap. "12 Years a Slave" won Best Drama, but "American Hustle" took three of the top prizes including Best Comedy/Musical, Best Actress Comedy/Musical and Best Supporting Actress. Probably the biggest surprise of the night, though not a shock if you've been reading the tea leaves of late, Matthew McConaughey scoring the Best Actor (Drama) prize for "Dallas Buyers Club" over Robert Redford, Chiwetel Ejiofor and that crowded field. More analysis tomorrow and in the meantime, check out to see how we did with our Globes predictions.
