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 Houston Film Critics Society Nominations

Houston, you’re so boring. Apart from including Cloud Atlas, Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and the wonderful Matthew McConaughey, I guess. But maybe I’m just bitter because you nominated Anna Karenina for Worst Film of 2012.

2012 Detroit Film Critics Society Nominations

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 23.07.30

Ahh, finally. Something a little more refreshing.

David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook leads the nominations, with Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz also a big Detroit favourite.

There’s a lot to look at here, with a good dollop of nominations for The Impossible and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, as well as the ever-deserving Matthew McConaughey once again in the mix.

With Bill Murray, Greta Gerwig, Rebel Wilson and Ezra Miller also popping up, take a look at the full list of nominations below: Continue reading

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 Satellite Award Nominations

Well this is a bit more fun.

Yes, all the familiar faces are here, but the Satellite nominations are peppered with some rather more exciting choices in the form of Emilie Dequenne, Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne. Whether this is set to be one of a small selection of nominations for the actors is yet to be seen, as is whether The International Press Academy will favour their more obscure choices over the current frontrunners. Either way, it makes an interesting read and it’s exciting to see Les Mis leading the way when there’s only just over a month to wait for us UK folk, now.

The winners will be announced on December 16th, so check out the full list of nominations below, minus all the TV stuff: Continue reading
