The 84th Academy Award Nominations

They’re finally here – the 2012 Oscar Nominations. See below for the full list of nominees: Continue reading

2011 Alliance Of Women Film Journalists Award Winners

These Awards genuinely crack me up. A mixture of Razzies, Teen Choice and serious, well-thought out nominees, they’re a lot of fun amongst some of the more predictable Awards that have been presented over the past few weeks. There’s a lot of prizes here, ranging from Best Picture to Actress Most In Need Of A New Agent to Kick Ass Award For Best Female Action Star and I’m glad to see wins for Shame, proving (as it rightly should) that it isn’t a sexist film in any way. However, the last Award has to be the best. Check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

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 Women Film Critics Circle Award Winners

These Awards are different. Definitely different. I like to think of the members of the WFCC sitting at a bar one night, dreaming up all the respective categories. But it does shine a light on a couple of less well known films and is probably the only Awards to ever include Dame Judi in a negative way. Check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

2011 Southeastern Film Critics Association Award Winners

No prizes for The Artist? Well this is rather refreshing. Check out the SEFCA’s winners below: Continue reading

The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards – Nominations

All in all, I’m actually pretty surprised by this year’s SAG nominations. We all know SAG tend to hold more stock than the Golden Globes come Oscar time, but this has me a little confused. No Shailene Woodley? No Albert Brooks? No Oldman or Fassbender? This seems to be a little against the grain. I’m thrilled to bits with Nolte’s nomination and he could have a very good chance, so I’m hoping for an Oscar nod – but we all know I’ve made no secret of that. Other than that, I’m glad to see Chastain’s Best Supporting nod confirmed as for The Help which I think is strongly deserved and both Albert Nobbs and Bridesmaids still appear to be in with a chance. Also, Demian Bichir? Who saw that coming? Check out the nominees below: Continue reading

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. Check out the full list of nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Houston Film Critics Society Award Nominations

Ok. This is the end of a very long day in regards to Awards and nominations. But Houston is a very interesting place to finish as it’s thrown a couple of real curveballs. And they lie mainly in the Best Supporting Actor category. Say hello to Andy Serkis, Alex Shaffer and Armie Hammer. Melissa McCarthy still seems to be popping up left right and centre. Don’t know quite how I feel about that. Check out the full nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award Winners

I’m going to be pretentious for a second and show my love for The Tree Of Life’s wins. I bloody loved that film (read my review here) and am glad someone sided with Malick for Best Director. It totally deserves its wins for Cinematography, but something tells me it won’t all play out how I want come January. Also so glad with the amount of recognition Jessica Chastain is getting for her insanely impressive breakout year – and checkout the cheeky nod to X-Men: First Class in regards to Fassbender. Love it. It’s only really the winners for Best Film and Best Actress that are surprises, with a nice shout in regards to Best Screenplay. But anyway, check out the winners in full below: Continue reading
