With late-arriving prestige pictures "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" (Stephen Daldry!) and "War Horse" (sentimental Steven Spielberg!) and the looming shadow of Oscar magnet Meryl Streep playing England's "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher, the award season, at its outset, sported an air of uncertainty all but absent from last year's front-loaded race. Or it did, until right about the time we handed out candy to a kid dressed up like J. Edgar Hoover (the angry old guy version) and realized that, yes, some spots continue to be up for grabs, but in terms of who'll get the nominations, the major races have already narrowed into focus.

Angelina Jolie showed up at the Academy Awards on Sunday night on the arm of partner Brad Pitt, who ended up winning an Oscar as one of the producers of "12 Years a Slave. " Don't be surprised if you see Jolie at the Dolby again next year, this time with Pitt applauding from the audience as Jolie wins the Oscar for directing "Unbroken," a survival tale depicting the life of World War II hero and former Olympic distance runner Louis Zamperini. Too soon? Definitely. But after spending the past six months writing about "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity," can you blame us for wanting to take just a peek at the movies that will likely by vying for next year's awards?

Low-cost horror movie "The Devil Inside" will try to do what Sherlock Holmes, Alvin and the Chipmunks and a girl with a dragon tattoo couldn't: knock Tom Cruise out of the top box-office spot. "The Devil Inside," about a woman investigating her mother's exorcisms, probably will open this weekend to between $12 million and $15 million, people who have seen pre-release audience surveys said. That should put it very close to Cruise's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," which after two weekends in the No. 1 spot is expected to drop to about $15 million.
