2012 Saturn Awards – Nominees

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominees for this year’s Saturn Awards. Coming on the tail-end of the Oscars, they almost hold two fingers up to the Academy, nominating the sort of film that wouldn’t usually get a whiff of recognition, all leading to a rather interesting set of nominees. If the presence of Limitless, Thor and The Lincoln Lawyer doesn’t get you interested then there’s something wrong with you and check out that Best Supporting Actor category! However, I must warn you that Hugo has a vast dollop of nominations, but it’s alright when there’s so much love for Tintin and a nom for Attack The Block. Check out the full set of nominees below: Continue reading

2011 Indiana Film Journalists Association Award Winners

Yep. Sorry, more Awards to discuss. This time it’s the IFJA and they’ve decided to mix things up a little by drawing attention to Ralph Fiennes in the Best Actor category. I’m also liking the inclusion of Viola Davis as Best Supporting here, as I never fully understood why she’s being pushed towards the Best Actress category. Check out the winners below: Continue reading

2011 BIFA Winners

The 2011 British Independent Film Awards took place in London last night and it was Paddy Considine’s Tyrannosaur that came away as the big winner, surprising those who thought Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy would sweep on its home turf – the film took just one of its seven nominations. However, Considine’s debut came away with three awards, so didn’t take the limelight off other winners of the night.

Fassbender and Redgrave were no surprise in their respective categories, but it’s fantastic to see Olivia Colman end Tilda Swinton’s current run of awards for her stunning performance in Tyrannosaur and it was also rather satisfying to see Kill List rewarded for Michael Smiley’s supporting role. However, come BAFTA, I think the odds may be swaying a little more in Tinker Tailor’s favour.

Also, Oscar take note – SENNA WON BEST DOCUMENTARY!!

The 2011 BIFA Nominations

And so here starts Awards season.

Admit it, we all felt it looming. From the minute Tinker Tailor came out complete with best of British, we were all secretly wondering who’d be up for the big ones come January 2012. Who would be the one chosen for Best Supporting – Hardy or Cumberbatch? Or neither? Would Gary Oldman finally get his horrifically overdue nomination? But many of us have been quietly making our Academy Award predictions for months now. For those that saw Drive back in August, what of Albert Brooks? That same month, Warrior gave us a possibility in the form of Nick Nolte. And now with trailers for War Horse, Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close, The Descendants, J. Edgar, My Week With Marilyn, Coriolanus and Albert Nobbs etc, etc, etc, coming in thick and fast, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel a little giddy with excitement – and the potential bragging rights that come with guessing the most winners correctly.
