2011 Internet Film Critics Society Award Winners

Although Drive isn’t your typical action flick, I’m happy with anyone who gives it recognition, resulting in the IFCS getting some extra brownie points from me before I realise they’ve also rewarded the brilliant Attack The Block. It’s a pretty short and sweet little selection, but check out the additional Best and Worst of 2011 categories, as well as wins for both Rooney Mara and Bellflower. As ever, check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

The 16th Annual Art Directors Guild Awards – Winners

No War Horse here. And what about The Tree Of Life, the most visually stunning film of the year?! And what was honestly so impressive about the production design of Bridesmaids? Yes, the wedding itself looked pretty cool, but apart from that it was all cakes, giant biscuits and more cakes – and projectile vomiting and diarrhoea. Somehow I don’t think the latter was taken into consideration. It’s good to see Anonymous slipping in there, as there was a great deal to look at and Tintin and The Cap are welcome additions in the fantasy category. Check out the winners below and see if you think predicting the Oscar nominees is any easier: Continue reading

2012 Vancouver Film Critics Circle Award Nominations

Time to move to Canada. Vancouver have constructed their noms a little differently, opting for a less conventional three in each category (aside from Best Documentary and Best Screenplay). This has resulted in the inclusion of Fassbender and Shannon alongside Dujardin, with Olsen replacing what can only have been Swinton’s slot. We also see Melissa McCarthy pop up once more for Bridesmaids. I’m still a little confused by this… Check out the full list of nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Phoenix Film Critics Society Award Winners

Phoenix stick with the general consensus and vote for The Artist, but break the mold a little by giving Best Actress to Elizabeth Olsen. Actually, they loved The Artist. Check out just how much below: Continue reading

2011 Austin Film Critics Association Award Winners

The love for Hugo and Tilda Swinton has returned with the Austin Film Critics Association’s winners. Refn gets more love for his direction on Drive and it’s Take Shelter that Chastain gets rewarded for this time around. That woman’s going to need a bigger mantlepiece. Oh, and what’s that? Attack The Block got a little bit of cheeky recognition for its score? 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
