Boring….. Apart from Fassy winning for Shame. Oh, and Mulligan winning for it too. Good job McQueen. Continue reading

2011 Austin Film Critics Association Award Winners

The love for Hugo and Tilda Swinton has returned with the Austin Film Critics Association’s winners. Refn gets more love for his direction on Drive and it’s Take Shelter that Chastain gets rewarded for this time around. That woman’s going to need a bigger mantlepiece. Oh, and what’s that?

Chicago has decided The Tree Of Life rocks its world, Michael Shannon beats out the competition and Miss Chastain should be awarded for her effort with Malick. Check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading
