Weinstein's The Imitation Game has gained a tremendous amount of steam. It looked like it was not going to be an overall major contender, but with its win today (an award that has predicted a lot of Best Picture nominees and winners), it has flexed its Oscar muscles, has probably galvanized Harvey, and has put itself squarely in the Oscar race. Over the next week or so, I will do a predictions update post Telluride/Venice/Toronto, and my bet is the The Imitation Game will move up the rankings.
