Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 87th Academy Award nominations through January 2015, when the nominations are announced.

While no film has emerged as a full-on frontrunner, two films have been steadily hanging in the wings to potentially emerge as just that: Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" and Richard Linklater's "Boyhood." Both have the critics on their side, have proved commercially successful (at least thus far, in the case of the two weeks out "Birdman") and have sustained -- or even continued to build -- Oscar buzz since they made their debuts. At the absolute very least, they are both getting nominations. But there's simply too many films we haven't seen to lock in much else, though it's hard to imagine "The Imitation Game" not getting in as well (though it's also hard to imagine it winning).
