Russell's 'American Hustle,' Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity' and Steve McQueen's '12 Years a Slave' -- all earned big-time nominations, a surprising number of expected frontrunners got the shaft.

I can't do it. I can't remove myself from the reality of my surroundings and engage with 'Saving Mr. Banks' on pure moviegoing terms.
Maybe it's a fault within me. Maybe I cling to cynicism too much. But if John Lee Hancock's film met me just halfway – if this were a roman a clef and the names of P.L. Travers, Walt Disney and Mary Poppins were changed – perhaps I could get over the hump and care about this picture more. But at the end of the day, this is a movie about Disney, made by Disney, in which a Disney business deal is presented as a transformative good. When the big emotional breakthrough happens at freaking Disneyland that was when I had to get off the ride.

Tom Hanks could be playing Walt Disney in 'Saving Mr. Banks,' which is not a sequel to the Hanks-starring 'Saving Private Ryan,' but a film about the making of the film 'Mary Poppins.' 'Banks' will be directed by John Lee Hancock, and the role of P.L. Travers - the author of 'Mary Poppins' - has been offered to Emma Thompson.
