Variety is reporting:

After winning the best actress award in Cannes for “Maps to the Stars,” Julianne Moore was considered a strong bet in this year’s Oscar race for her turn as a washed-up star in the David Cronenberg drama. But the overdue actress, who has been nominated for four Academy Awards without winning, could be sitting out of this year’s awards season.

In a deal that closed last week, Focus World picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Cronenberg drama from Canadian outfit eOne, sources tell Variety exclusively. “Maps to the Star’s” won’t premiere stateside until early 2015.

Focus World is the alternative distribution division of Focus Features, and it hasn’t been decided if the drama will be released on VOD or if it will play in theaters domestically or some combination thereof. “Maps” could get an Oscar qualifying theatrical release at the end of 2014, so that it would at least be eligible for Academy Awards nominations, according to one individual with knowledge, but a movie with that kind of strategy can sometimes get lost amidst the slew of December contenders.

“Maps to the Stars” will screen this month at the Toronto International and New York Film Festivals, which are traditionally launching pads for Oscar contenders. On September 9, Moore is scheduled to appear at a cocktail event following a screening of the film at Toronto.

Following the news, we went straight to our film industry guru, Larry Richman (@larry411) to break down what this all means. In a series of tweets, he reported:

David Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’ Acquired by Focus World for 2015 Release via

Maps to the Stars w/Julianne Moore & picked up by Focus World for US distro in 2015 reports

Dear Focus World, please don’t pull from like Lionsgate did with Maggie. Love, me.

(A reply back to RPWW regarding if he believes the film will be pulled) I don’t think it will be. The timing isn’t the same based on release date strategy.

It goes without saying that the Focus World deal removes , its filmmakers, & cast from awards season consideration this year.

The only way could still be eligible for this year’s awards is if it gets an Oscar-qualifying run end of December. It’s possible.

If plays at least 7 consecutive days at a theater in Los Angeles County by Dec 31 at midnight it will be eligble for the next Oscars.

I doubt will be pulled from esp since it’s got Canadian pedigree & is a hi-profile Gala. But Lionsgate’s decision is a mystery

Nobody really knows why Lionsgate pulled Maggie. There’s only speculation. But that is an exception. I don’t think that will happen w

My pleasure. I try not to speculate, just stick to what we know. But need to wonder. RT : As always, thank you Larry.

BTW for the cinephiles out there…and if you need some light reading…here are the official rules

FYI Focus World is the “alternative distribution division” of Focus Features, which is part of NBCUniversal, which is owned by Comcast.

Focus World was created to focus on VOD and other distribution platforms…but they also do theatrical.

Larry Richman went on to tweet today the following considerations:

Several well-respected journalists at large media outlets today posted info about the deal which is inaccurate & full of speculation.

The most accurate info is still the original story posted last night by The others draw unproven conclusions

There IS a way can still be in Oscars, which is discussed by . The other outlets ignored that.

There is also the possibility of theatrical AND digital distribution, as reported , which other reporters also seemed to ignore.

Also see my Twitter discussion last night where I talk about the Oscar possibilities, theatrical vs digital distribution, etc.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about this development!
