screen-shot-2011-12-12-at-21-20-57

St. Louis loves a bit of Tarantino!

There’s a little bit more breathing space away from the usual suspects in this batch of nominations, with Moonrise Kingdom getting a lot of very deserved nods and a few more interesting people popping up in the Acting categories, including Aubrey Plaza, Jamie Foxx, John Goodman, William H. Macy and Emma Watson.

There’s also the inclusion of Best Arthouse or Festival Film and Best Scene, but as for Best Comedy, Ted can definitely bore off.

Ahh, finally. Something a little more refreshing.

David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook leads the nominations, with Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz also a big Detroit favourite.

There’s a lot to look at here, with a good dollop of nominations for The Impossible and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, as well as the ever-deserving Matthew McConaughey once again in the mix.

With Bill Murray, Greta Gerwig, Rebel Wilson and Ezra Miller also popping up, take a look at the full list of nominations below: Continue reading

2012 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award Winners

I don’t know if I ever truly buy into the whole ‘runner-up’ business, as it forms a bit of a backhanded compliment. But if we’re to read into them, The Master appears to reign supreme what with its wins for Phoenix, Adams, Anderson and ‘prize’ of runner-up to Haneke’s Amour in the Best Picture category.

Elsewhere, Beasts Of The Southern Wild keeps afloat with wins for Best Supporting Actor, Score and the LAFCA’s ‘New Generation’ accolade for Zeitlin. Oh, and congratulations to William Goldenberg for managing to beat himself to the prize for Best Editing. Impressive.

Well this is a bit more fun.

Yes, all the familiar faces are here, but the Satellite nominations are peppered with some rather more exciting choices in the form of Emilie Dequenne, Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne. Whether this is set to be one of a small selection of nominations for the actors is yet to be seen, as is whether The International Press Academy will favour their more obscure choices over the current frontrunners. Either way, it makes an interesting read and it’s exciting to see Les Mis leading the way when there’s only just over a month to wait for us UK folk, now.

The winners will be announced on December 16th, so check out the full list of nominations below, minus all the TV stuff: Continue reading
