Dear The Barn,
Any early front-runners for the Oscars this year? I heard "Stonehearst Asylum" was great.
What the hell? Someone actually asked a question...
I mean, thanks for the question!
Many have said the Oscar is a worthless award.
Their opinion does not reflect those of us at The Barn, who don't consider the Oscar an award at all.

But to answer your question, based on various critic's awards, it seems like Boyhood is the favorite. Birdman also figures to be in the mix, while Selma appears to be making a late push as well. The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything will get some consideration as well.
Sadly, it appears the Academy will once again overlook Kate Beckinsale in the aforementioned Stonehearst Asylum.
