Oscars 2015: Peter Travers on Who Will (and Who Should) Win

From 'Boyhood' to 'Birdman,' here's your tip sheet for the whitest Oscars in years

Race to the Oscars 2015: Peter Travers
(20th Century Fox; IFC Films; Jack English)

With the Oscar telecast coming right at us on Feb. 22nd, now's the time to check the odds on the main competition. Whether you're betting at home, school or office, the Academy of Old Farts and Retro Sciences (numbering more than 6,000 strong) always has a few thorny surprises up its sleeve. For example, not one person of color appears among the 20 nominees for acting. Can the race-shaming tilt the Best Picture contest  in favor of Selma, especially since the frontrunners have long been Boyhood and Birdman? For the answers to that question and more, check out my take on who Will Win and Who Should Win in the whitest Oscar race in years.
