So, how has the Oscar race changed since last night's unveiling of the "unfinished" "Lincoln" at the New York Film Festival? Not much, except that Steven Spielberg's historical drama might not be the multiple-category, firebreathing contender some said it was on paper. Best Picture, Supporting Actor, Director and perhaps Adapted Screenplay noms seem a lock, but even they do not look guaranteed as wins, not even Daniel Day-Lewis whose subtler turn might not be the showy performance voters expect. So, who could steal this thunder? How about Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in "Hitchcock"?

Two films enter, one film leaves! Dueling "Snow White" pictures made way for dueling Alfred Hitchock pictures in 2012 (oh, how Hollywood loves to battle with itself). And the verdict may already be in. The version focusing on the master of suspense's releationship with Tippi Hedren staring Toby Jones and Sienna Miller, "The Girl" screened this weekend at the Hamptons International Film Festival and our reviewer wasn't overly impressed (however some other reviews have been a bit more generous). That leaves "Hitchcock," which centers on the making of the groundbreaking psychological horror film, "Psycho." The synopsis so far is rather vague, but provides enough to keep us interested:

With "Hitchcock" now in the Oscar hunt, and set to hit theaters next month, we're going to be seeing a lot more from this film in the coming weeks. But we just hope the rollout gets a bit smoother as it goes along.

Surprisingly, the Toronto International Film Festival, which in years past has seen previously unregarded pictures like "The King's Speech" and "Slumdog Millionaire" break out into Oscar front-runners, didn't really provide an out-of-nowhere shocker this year. Sure, there were "Argo" and "Silver Linings Playbook," as we discussed on Monday, but they were both mostly considered to be strong candidates even before they screened, as was Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master."

In terms of Oscar contenders this year, Fox Searchlight was looking a little light in the loafers. They've had an odd 2012 with excellent films like "Sound Of My Voice" and "Ruby Sparks" failing to find the audiences they deserved, while "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" mostly crushed it overseas. But on the other hand, their Sundance acquisition "Beasts of the Southern Wild" wowed crowds and has a shot at awards season glory, at the very least for Quvenzhané Wallis (though we think the movie will be too odd to catch on any further with stodgier Oscar voters). But they've got one more ace up their sleeve, and sorry, it's not Park Chan-wook's "Stoker."

Surely at this stage, Danny Elfman must have some kind of cloning machine at work. In 2012 alone, the Oingo Boingo member turned composer has penned two scores for his regular collaborator Tim Burton, "Dark Shadows" and "Frankenweenie," another for "Men In Black 3," and one for David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook." He's got Fox animated pic "Epic" and a reunion with Sam Raimi on "Oz The Great and Powerful" coming up too, but all being well, we could see two more Elfman scores before the year is out.

Karlovy Vary Film Festival: Helen Mirren Talks Women In Filmmaking, Violence Vs. Nudity, 'Hitchcock' & More

The organisers of the Karlovy Vary International FIlm Festival, taking place this week in the obscenely picturesque spa town of Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, have hit on a canny strategy. The festival’s programming has for some years now been above reproach in every respect, something that has not always been the case in its storied 47 year history, that at one point saw the event pretty much shunned because of its apparent kowtowing to the communist powers-that-were.

Alfred Hitchcock seems to be firmly in the zeitgeist at the moment: the British Film Institute is showing an extensive retrospective of the director's work later in the year, and the next twelve months or so will see not one, but two biopics of the legendary master of suspense. The first, "The Girl," is made for British television and focuses on the relationship between Hitch and his "The Birds" star Tippi Hedren, with Toby Jones playing the director and Sienna Miller taking on the actress's role.

Well, we already got a peek at what Toby Jones looks like as Alfred Hitchock in "The Girl" -- one of two movies on the way about the director -- and now it's time for Anthony Hopkins to step into the famous silhouette, and it's pretty impressive.
