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 Dublin Film Critics Circle Award Winners

Dublin have embraced Gosling and Chastain, surprisingly opting for the latter’s performance in The Tree Of Life as a lead role. However, her work in Take Shelter and The Help gets recognition further down. Short and sweet, check out the winners below: Continue reading

2011 Utah Film Critics Association Award Winners

It’s official – Utah love Drive. Like, really love Drive. So much so that they’re even willing to give the film the prize for Best Cinematography, resulting in The Tree Of Life having to make do with Runner-up. As much as I love Refn’s film, I can’t quite deal with that… Other interesting choices include Gordon-Levitt for Best Actor and Amy Ryan for Win Win. The rest of it is all pretty straightforward. Check out the winners below: Continue reading

2011 London Film Critics’ Circle Award Nominations

I really like these nominations. Possibly more than any other batch so far, simply because the LFCC have been willing to think OUTSIDE THE BOX. It’s not a hard thing to do, but The Golden Globes (whose nominations I haven’t even posted) could seriously learn a thing or two here. Drive and Tinker Tailor lead the way and more recognition has been given to Margaret and A Separation. The best category has got to be Breakthrough British Filmmaker Of The Year – how would you even start to judge that?! Check out the full list of nominations below: Continue reading

2011 Houston Film Critics Society Award Winners

It looks like Houston are following in Las Vegas’ footsteps by giving Refn his second Award for Best Director. There’s nothing too out of the ordinary here apart from The Descendants being chosen as Best Picture (has Hugo’s streak of good luck finally run out?) and the rather inspired Worst Film category. Check out the winners below: Continue reading

2011 Las Vegas Film Critics Society Award Winners

Las Vegas have chosen their winners and it’s all about Drive and The Artist, with Refn winning his first Best Director Award of the campaign – cheers Las Vegas. Melissa McCarthy gets another win for Bridesmaids and it doesn’t look like her run’s going to stop just yet. Check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading
