Oz The Great And Powerful Press Conference

Yesterday, I headed to Claridge’s for the Press Conference for Oz The Great And Powerful for The Hollywood News. Aside from hearing about the film, it confirmed two things – that Zach Braff is hilarious and Rachel Weisz may be the most beautiful person I have ever laid my eyes on. I live blogged the whole thing with some short and sweet Twitter soundbites and you can read it all back here. Oh, and here’s a few of the photos I took. I spoil you, I know.

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

It’s bongo time again, kids.

Matthew McConaughey walks away with yet another prize, this time for his work in both Bernie and Magic Mike. But that’s not the main point of interest here, with Rachel Weisz winning Best Actress for The Deep Blue Sea and Zero Dark Thirty taking away three on the night.

It’s nice to see a fresh bunch of winners alongside the frontrunners, but Zero Dark Thirty is set to be a very strong contender in the lead up to February 24th.

Check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

Evening Standard British Film Awards – Nominations

BAFTA, you really could have learned one or two things from these nominations. The fact that Best Supporting is rolled into Best Actor/Actress makes for some very interesting choices, very few of which are actually potential Oscar nominees – Branagh and Fassbender, Redgrave, Swinton and possibly Mulligan and Oldman if he’s exceptionally lucky after his pretty unexciting Awards season. But the one main difference is the three nominations for Joanna Hogg’s Archipelago, starring BAFTA Rising Star nominee, Tom Hiddleston. And hello to the overdue acting nods for Colman, Gleeson and Mullan. The addition of a ‘People’s Choice’ Award gives The Smurfs a chance to battle it out against Bridesmaids and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Tell Papa Smurf not to crack the champagne out just yet. Check out the full list of nominees below:

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
