The Oscars: Academy Awards winners, news, and film reviews

A comprehensive guide to the Academy Awards, including this year's nominations, predictions and interviews

No matter how often we're told about “frontrunners” (see number one in our list of things we learned at the 2015 Oscars) or “long shots,” there's only one way to know for sure who's going home with an Oscar—and that's at the Oscars themselves. We'll be tuned in to experience all the surprise wins. Truth be told, all that's certain is this: There will be cringeworthy Oscar speeches. There will be deserving winners and undeserving ones. There will be plenty of fashion misfires. There will be blood. We'll be live-tweeting the whole shebang at @TimeOutUSFilm. Join us.

American Sniper

Just as only Nixon could go to China, only Clint Eastwood could make a movie about an Iraq War veteran and infuse it with doubts, mission anxiety and ruination.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

There’s nothing like the glow of a truly great film—and this could be Wes Anderson’s keeper—to trigger some niggling reservations.

The Theory of Everything

A movie that delivers science in an approachable Neil deGrasse Tyson–like way, one that might turn young people onto big theoretical ideas—as well as turn them onto the enjoyment of problem solving with the right partner.
