ICS nominations: Who the hell is Anton Adasinsky?

And now for something completely different? That old Monty Python classic was on our mind as we perused the nominations revealed today by the International Cinephile Society for their 11th ICS Awards. Known for always making the most idiosyncratic picks of the awards season, they sure don’t disappoint this year. Where else would Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways pick up six ...

Critics societies roundup 7

Also known as 'the stragglers'. Or 'the organizations that can't be bothered to design a logo' (we're looking at you, Iowa and Oklahoma!). But still, critics organizations they are, so we will round them up and present their choices, for this last roundup before this week's Oscar nominations. Georgia picked their winners a few days after announcing their nominees, while ...

ASC nominations, all seven of them. Wait, seven?

We are still working our way through interpreting today’s BAFTA nominations a bit, but there are more guilds announcing their nominations today, one of them being the American Society of Cinematographers. For some reason, they chose seven nomination this year. An odd number, but it does accommodate for all films that were expected here. Perhaps not expected, but nonetheless very ...

BAFTA nominations: Hustle, Wolf soar. Her and Dallas biggest losers

We are still trying to let these sink in, but the BAFTA nominations have sure shaken things up a bit. Just some short observations right now (expect much more discussion about these in an upcoming podcast): American Hustle and The Wolf Of Wall Street did excellent here, especially the former, which grabbed nominations in all four acting categories. Meanwhile, DiCaprio ...

DGA nominations: Wolf rises, Nebraska left out in the cold

Critics Societies roundup 6

It has been a while, but we finally have some results from a batch of film critics organizations again. In this roundup, we have Georgia, North Carolina, and Denver (who apparently represent the whole state of Colorado; by the way, design a proper logo, guys). Now, these mostly feature the regular suspects, though it's interesting to note that Leonardo DiCaprio's ...
