Can Fox Searchlight Turn 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Into a Serious Oscar Contender?

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" could very well be a major awards player in 2014. The specialty box office sensation (almost $52 million domestic at the time of writing, and $140 million worldwide) is in the Top Ten two months after its initial release.

It does happen.
