Casting Society Of America Award Winners

Are we able to stop talking about The Artist now…? I think so.

Celebrating a category that is deemed unfit for Oscar – a rather shocking oversight, in my opinion – there isn’t a great deal to be surprised by, but some 2012 releases did make the list of nominations, which you can find here.

Ben Affleck received a Career Achievement Award and his Argo casting director, Lora Kennedy, was honoured with The Hoyt Bowers Award For Excellence In Casting. And we all know she’ll be back on that list of nominees for next year.

Casting Society Of America Awards

And just when we thought we’d never have to write Michel Hazanavicius’ name again…

Fashionably late but boringly predictable, the Casting Society of America have released the nominations for their October Awards ceremony. Sticking very much to the films lauded by different circles in the run-up to the Oscars, having their nominations now allows some leeway for 2012 films, but exposes a glaring omission in the shape of Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris.

The full list of nominees for a category that many feel the Oscars should bring in can be seen below: Continue reading

2012 Saturn Awards – Nominees

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominees for this year’s Saturn Awards. Coming on the tail-end of the Oscars, they almost hold two fingers up to the Academy, nominating the sort of film that wouldn’t usually get a whiff of recognition, all leading to a rather interesting set of nominees. If the presence of Limitless, Thor and The Lincoln Lawyer doesn’t get you interested then there’s something wrong with you and check out that Best Supporting Actor category! However, I must warn you that Hugo has a vast dollop of nominations, but it’s alright when there’s so much love for Tintin and a nom for Attack The Block. Check out the full set of nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Vancouver Film Critics Circle Award Winners

Hello, Canada calling. More love for Fassbender here with another win for Shame and Elizabeth Olsen gathers another accolade for her work in Martha Marcy May Marlene. There’s some prizes specifically for Canadian films which draws our attention to Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, Michelle Williams (away from Marilyn) and Peter Stomare. Check out all the winners below: 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 Central Ohio Film Critics Association Award Winners

Central Ohio love Drive. They love Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling and I don’t blame them. I just wish more Associations and Societies were brave enough to give it the attention it deserves. Away from Drive’s wins here, check out the Best Actress category and cheeky little wins for Source Code and Hanna. As ever, check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading
