The Alliance Of Women Film Journalists really do crack me up. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a woman, but some of the categories these ladies use to reward feminism or slap the hand of those who aren’t doing us many favours are downright hysterical.
Zero Dark Thirty is their outright winner (it led the nominations) and the other acting awards don’t defer from what we’ve already seen, but with awards such as ‘Kick Ass Award For Best Female Action Star’ and ‘Actress Most In Need Of A New Agent’, you need to give this list of winners a proper look – even if they do piss all over my love of Anna Karenina.

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.
