2011 Broadcast Film Critics Association Award Nominations

The BFCA have done two things that make me very happy. They’ve given a hell of a lot of love to Drive (eight nods, in fact) and they’ve nominated Nick Nolte for his absolutely heartbreaking performance in Warrior, a film that will be showcased when I eventually write up my Top Ten of 2011. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has been left out entirely which is more than a shock and it’s interesting to see Andy Serkis get yet another nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

One response to “2011 Broadcast Film Critics Association Award Nominations

  1. A very Happy 82nd Birthday to Canadian acting legend Christopher Plummer

    After appearing in over 150 movies, Christopher Plummer received his first Academy Award nomination two years ago at the age of 80 for playing Leo Tolstoy in The Last Station. Since then he has been incredibly busy with nine movies since the beginning of 2009 and numerous voice acting performances for video games. Plummer might be back to win the prize this year for his deeply moving performance in Mike Mills’ Beginners.
    Plummer does so marvelously and should have enough respect from the Academy to at least score a nomination and he is the closest thing we have right now to a lock.
