Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by ,

Kim Masters and Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

- Some major categories at this year's Oscars already look to have clear winners, best supporting actor and actress among them. It's likely that J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette will take home gold statues to add to the bevy of awards they've already won this year.

- Julianne Moore is the far and away favorite to win Best Actress, but the Best Actor category is more of a question. Eddie Redmayne is favored to win for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, but Michael Keaton is a strong contender for his role in Birdman.

- And while Boyhood was in the lead to win Best Picture for many months, Birdman has taken an edge after winning at all the various guild award ceremonies.

- But of course, all will be revealed at the ceremony on Sunday.
