London Critics’ Circle Award Winners

Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 17.37.39

It’s an Amour love-in for the London Critics’ Circle. And the rest of the winners are rather lovely, too, even if the acting wins are for the most part on a par with what we’ve already seen during this year’s Oscar Race.

But London felt it was right to applaud Rust And Bone, The Imposter and Berberian Sound Studio which the Oscar nominations left out completely, with recognition also going to the wonderful Andrea Riseborough.

With a couple of other well-deserved wins for British talent, check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

I Should Probably Post These Oscar Nominations, Then

OSCARS-2013

Seeing as everyone was a little Oscar’d out yesterday, I thought I’d wait until today to put these up. I’m not going to say too much, as I think I exhausted my point over on Twitter (@iamnotwaynegale) and said everything I wanted to when predicting my nominations here.

‘Snubs’ aside, all I’ll say is that I’m absolutely thrilled for Benh Zeitlin and little Quvenzhané and really pleased Eiko Ishioka gets a fitting tribute.

Fed Up Of People Talking About The BAFTA Nominations Yet?

Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 16.11.47

Now, I’m sure you’re pretty sick and tired of hearing peoples’ two cents on today’s BAFTA nominations and how they might correlate with tomorrow’s (well, today now) Oscar nominations, yadda yadda, blah blah blahhh.

So I’m simply going to post the list of nominations below with no preamble. That can come with whatever tomorrow’s Academy Award nominations bring!

Alliance Of Women Film Journalists Award Winners

Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 13.47.40

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. But they do give Adam Sandler a stern telling off and, at present, that can only be a good thing.

Check out their winners below: Continue reading

North Texas Film Critics Association Award Winners

Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 12.34.14

North Texas love a little bit of Abraham Lincoln. Not Timur Bekmambetov’s version, though. They bloody hate vampires.

Lawrence, Jones and Hathaway continue their streak and the wonderful Untouchable takes another award for Best Foreign Film.

There’s not a great deal to look at, but check out North Texas’ winners below: Continue reading

Critic Circle Update: Because I Got Slack, And That.

San Francisco, Satellite Awards, Chicago, St. Louis, Indiana, Toronto, Florida, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin, Black Film Critics, Utah, Dublin, Women Films Circle – I feel I may have neglected you slightly.

With thirteen different lists of winners to report back on, well, I’ll keep it brief, but a list of Best Picture, Director, all four Acting winners, Best Screenplays, Cinematography, Documentary, Animation and Foreign Film can be found below.

It’s mainly all about Zero Dark Thirty and Daniel Day-Lewis as expected, but there are some interesting wins to pick up on (namely thanks to Toronto) and prizes to whoever finds The Artist hidden within.

Check it all out below: Continue reading

2012 Kansas City Film Critics Circle Winners

Screen Shot 2012-12-17 at 13.43.32

Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Anne Hathaway. Not much to get excited about, but the choice of The Master and Ang Lee for Best Picture and Director makes a nice change.

Otherwise it’s all looking pretty samey apart from the inclusion of a Best Science Fiction, Fantasy or Horror category and absolutely no wins for Zero Dark Thirty. Sorry, Bigs.

2012 St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association Nominations

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.

2012 Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Winners

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 22.22.10

Though Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln led the nominations, Zero Dark Thirty seems to be dominating pretty much everything at present.

Daniel Day-Lewis may have taken Best Actor, but Bigelow and Chastain are looking to be a formidable force in regards to Best Picture, Director and Actress.

WAFCA showered more love on Anne Hathaway and Philip Seymour Hoffman, with Les Miserables beating a lot of stiff competition to Best Ensemble and the brilliant ParaNorman taking the spotlight off Disney momentarily.

2012 AFI Movies Of The Year

afi_logo_2

The American Film Institute give their two cents when it comes to the best films of the year. But this list is only for American movies, remember.

At present, only four of these are on my list (find it here – sorry, Nolan), but I’ve yet to see five of them, so we’ll see how that changes.

US/UK release dates aside, the list is far from exciting and holds the main Oscar frontrunners alongside indie darlings Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts Of The Southern Wild and Moonrise Kingdom which are undoubtedly guaranteed nominations in some form or another. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Looper, hey?

Check out the AFI’s top ten (in alphabetical order) below: Continue reading
