Online Film Critics Society Award Winners

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 19.10.30

After leading the nominations, it’s no surprise that Paul Thomas Anderson won Best Director, but apart from Philip Seymour Hoffman’s award, it doesn’t really make much of a mark here.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Jessica Chastain are old news and mortal locks for Oscar nominations, with their respective chances of walking away with the grand prize on the night rather easy to visualise.

Argo took Best Picture and Anne Hathaway wins another trophy for what is surely one of the world’s largest mantlepieces. Cloud Atlas (yeah, you heard – still so excited about seeing this), Skyfall and Moonrise Kingdom are also recognised.

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.

2012 San Diego Film Critics Society Winners

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 23.10.15

San Diego hand their top honours over to Mr. Ben Affleck, with the majority of their remaining winners slighty off centre, too.

Daniel Day-Lewis may have won yet another prize for his title role in Lincoln, but Best Actress and Supporting Actress are a nice talking point here, especially when the two ladies in question are far from expected to receive an Oscar nomination. But it sure does make a welcome change to think outside the box.

Stay classy, San Diego.

2012 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award Winners

Screen Shot 2012-12-11 at 23.00.58

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.

UK Box Office: 23 – 25 November – It’s All About eOne

It’s bye bye Neeson and hello Christmas as Taken 2 finally drops out of the top ten and improv sequel Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger gives eOne another top three entry alongside the currently immovable Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Oscar hopeful Silver Linings Playbook embarrasses Firth and Diaz, while David Ayer’s cop flick makes a humble entry sandwiched between Bens Stiller and Affleck.

Elsewhere, Skyfall is still standing strong on home turf, with Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted apparently never wanting to disappear, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master finally passing the £1 million mark.

Check out the top ten below: Continue reading

UK Box Office: 16 – 18 November – Vampires In The Hizzle

There’s a massive surprise number one film in the UK this week – lol jk, Twilight’s out. The final (cue party poppers for some) installment in the saga knocks Skyfall off its top spot, with the newest addition to the Bond franchise currently standing at an incredibly impressive £83 million. Well played, Mendes.

Three Indian offerings also break the top ten and Madagascar 3 and Hotel Transylvania prove they have sticking power well after the half term break. And, though it may be sitting just outside the top five, it’s great to see The Master riding high in its first week on wide release.

Check out the top ten below: Continue reading
