2011 Online Film Critics Society Award Nominations

The Online Film Critics Society have one of my favourite Best Supporting Actor selections to date. And their addition of Dunst and Olsen in the Best Actress category definitely hasn’t gone unnoticed. Von Trier gets a Best Director nod – an absolute rarity. If his ‘snubs’ have merely been due to the Cannes confusion, the Academy need to man the hell up. Check out the full list of nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Alliance Of Women Film Journalists Award Nominations

The AWFJ have obviously had a lot of fun with their Actress Most In Need Of A New Agent and Hall Of Shame categories, but aside from that their choices aren’t particularly exciting (although they have opted for both Rickman and Serkis in the Best Supporting slot). Sacrilege occurs further down when naming Drive as a Movie You Wanted To Love But Just Couldn’t, but the Most Egregious Age Difference category is rather amusing. Check out these rather unconventional nominations below: Continue reading

2011 Oklahoma Film Critics Circle Award Winners

Well this is all a little boring and predictable. But then there’s the brilliant choice of The Skin I Live In for Best Foreign Language Film and the inspired prizes for Obviously and Not-So-Obviously Worst Film. Check Oklahoma’s winners out below: Continue reading

2011 Utah Film Critics Association Award Winners

It’s official – Utah love Drive. Like, really love Drive. So much so that they’re even willing to give the film the prize for Best Cinematography, resulting in The Tree Of Life having to make do with Runner-up. As much as I love Refn’s film, I can’t quite deal with that… Other interesting choices include Gordon-Levitt for Best Actor and Amy Ryan for Win Win. The rest of it is all pretty straightforward. Check out the winners below: Continue reading

2011 Black Film Critics Circle Award Winners

Barely any of the BFCC’s winners think too outside of the box, surprisingly, but this obviously has a lot to do with The Help already being an Oscar frontrunner. There’s a lot of love for Pariah and Attack The Block, with Albert Brooks once again rewarded for Drive and Warrior included in another Top Ten of the year. Check out all the winners below: Continue reading

2011 London Film Critics’ Circle Award Nominations

I really like these nominations. Possibly more than any other batch so far, simply because the LFCC have been willing to think OUTSIDE THE BOX. It’s not a hard thing to do, but The Golden Globes (whose nominations I haven’t even posted) could seriously learn a thing or two here. Drive and Tinker Tailor lead the way and more recognition has been given to Margaret and A Separation. The best category has got to be Breakthrough British Filmmaker Of The Year – how would you even start to judge that?! Check out the full list of nominations below: Continue reading

2011 Florida Film Critics Circle Award Winners

The Artist only gets one Award here from the FFCC for Best Original Screenplay, apparently bucking its original sweeping trend. Michelle Williams seems to be unstoppable, with Albert Brooks and Shailene Woodley adding more accolades to their great run so far. See the rest of the winners below: Continue reading
