Re: Second-/Third-Tier Critics

As okri has often pointed out, a group that's been around a long time (it even predates the National Society).

Re: Boston Film Critics Awards

So, Boston said, no women-directed films in the best picture race? Check out our numbers one and two. They also went for local lady Louisa May Alcott. Boston in the past has shown some favoritism toward area-based films. But good for Gerwig's movie, winning 4 prizes and nabbing runner-up in three mo...

Re: Three Scenarios for Best Actress

It's not often I side with criddic over other board members, but I think he's correct here. The notion that everybody agrees Woody Allen is guilty and must be shunned from polite society is a bubble belief (not unlike the idea that Joe Biden can't possibly win the Dem nomination, because no one I kn...

Chicago Film Critics Awards

One of the few groups that, for reasons of longevity/credibility, I give their own thread. Though their top-line choices are pretty rote this year. BEST PICTURE Parasite BEST DIRECTOR Bong Joon Ho, Parasite BEST ACTRESS Lupita Nyong'o, Us BEST ACTOR Adam Driver, Marriage Story BEST SUPPORTING ACTRES...

Boston Film Critics Awards

I miss Boston as the opening act for the LA Critics, but they've apparently settled on a week later as their time. They're voting right now, and I'll post winners/runners-up as they become available. Best Film: Little Women (ru: Portrait of a Lady on Fire) Best Director: Bong Joon Ho (Parasite) (ru:...

Three Scenarios for Best Actress

It was already fairly clear this year's best actress category wasn't going to generate an anointed winner -- a Mirren/The Queen, Blanchett/Blue Jasmine, who sweeps all others aside -- but NY and LA going with Lupita Nyong'o and Mary Kay Place made that oficial. Nyong'o has now become something of a ...

Re: R.I.P. Danny Aiello

For a character actor who some might say only had the one moment in the limelight with Do the Right Thing , he has it, Leon: The Professional , Moonstruck , Radio Days , The Purple Rose of Cairo , Once Upon a Time in America , and The Godfather Part II on his filmography. Many actors spend their ca...

Re: SAG Nominations

Typically, the children at Awards Worthy are making extravagant pronouncements ("R.I.P. Little Women"; "Parasite is SO winning!" A couple of things worth remembering: 1) we still don't know how much impact the merger with AFTRA has had on SAG's propensity for matching AMPAS; 2) c...

Re: SAG Awards (predictions)

As in other years, I don't attempt to anticipate what no-hoper SAG puts on the ballot (Helen Mirren/Woman in Gold; Sarah Silverman/I can't even remember the title), or which contenders get the blow of omission (though most likely are foreign performers or December releases). But I do think about the...

CAS Sound Award Nominees

Missing: 1917, the presumed front-runner in many eyes. (And the Costume Design Guild this morning omitted Little Women, another thought-to-be-category-favorite. Late release issues, or chaos?)

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2019

When some people, in praising Us, said it overcame Get Out's problem of not being scary enough, they might as well have been telling me to avoid the movie. But, a slew of critics' awards persuaded me I had to put myself through the film. And what I found was a film problematic not so much for how sc...
