The 40th Annual Annie Award Nominations

AnnieAwards__121203160948

It’s alliteration a gogo for the announcement of the 40th Annual Annie Awards.

Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Rise Of The Guardians lead the nominations, with Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman not too far behind. It’s a strong set of nominations for Disney, with John Carter and The Avengers also lurking on the sidelines.

As for who to put your money on in regards to the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, well, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s a two-horse race between Brave and Wreck-It Ralph.

2013 Film Independent Spirit Award Nominations

Screen Shot 2012-12-05 at 05.07.47

Sound the bongos – it’s a double nomination for Matthew McConaughey.

Jack Black’s nomination for Bernie is surely set to keep him ontrack for a Golden Globe nod and Emayatzy Corinealdi returns to contest Little Miss Hushpuppy once more, making it pretty clear that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the Middle Of Nowhere star before the season’s through.

Brit Marling gets some love, as does The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and Ruby Sparks, but you can always trust the Spirit Awards to dig up something a little different and nominate those who often go unseen for the rest of the season, so check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

2012 European Film Award Nominations

Marion Cotillard, where art thou?

Michael Haneke’s Amour, Steve McQueen’s Shame and Tomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt lead the pack for the 25th Annual European Film Awards.

With Amour winning Haneke the Palme d’Or in Cannes earlier this year, his chance at a spot in Oscar’s Best Picture category is looking rather positive. But even with its prime November UK and December US release dates, with two months to go, we all know that anything could happen.

As a huge fan of Untouchable, its strong presence here is great to see (that’s the Weinstein effect for you), but I definitely wasn’t expecting Kate Winslet to pop up or to find The Angels’ Share score in the mix. Brilliant film, but completely unmemorable music – aside from The Proclaimers, of course.

Oh, and if you were wondering, Holy Motors wasn’t eligible.
