Here’s a HuffPostLive discussion (recorded at 4:30 pm Eastern) about how the Toronto Film Festival may impact award season. Hosted by Ricky Camilleri and featuring Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson, Rope of Silicon‘s Brad Brevet and myself. The Theory of Everything was/is the festival’s big Best Picture contender, but it’s not on the level of Birdman and doesn’t try to be — it plays its own game. Nothing else that played here challenges Birdman either. You can take that to the bank. We also kicked around Men, Women and Children, While We’re Young, Love and Mercy, The Judge, Nightcrawler. I was intending to mention Mike Binder‘s Black and White but didn’t…brilliant.
