    Should be interesting to see who gets Best Director the way the awards are going.

    Steve Buscemi just won Best Supporting Actor for Ghost World. A worthy performance.

    A couple wins for In the Mood for Love (cinematographer and foreign film). Couldn't be happier that Waking Life took Best Animated Film. The Gleaners and I claimed Best Non-fiction film.

    A stunning number of awards for Gosford Park, which I have heard relatively little about. Looking back in previous years, it appears that Altman has been a favorite at getting awards for himself or others. (The Harry Belafonte Best Supporting Actor win for Kansas City stands out as one of the more surprising examples.)

    Glad to see Mulholland take the top prize, although I'm surprised that A.I. (the year's best film) wasn't awarded given that Armond White, Andrew Sarris, and A.O. Scott are all huge supporters of that film.

    Looks like a lean to intimate pictures. Am I wrong in thinking that NYCritcs usually take that angle?

    How about some past awards for some comparison/discussion.

    I certainly don't see Mulholland Drive having a shot in hell at best pix Oscar.

    Hey, when are the LA Critics... I thought it went WED, THR. Is it really THR, FRI then??

    Hopefully, this is a preview of the Oscar nods. Wilkinson and Spacek were both amazing in "In the Bedroom", as was Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Berry in "Monster's Ball".

    "Waking Life" was a really good movie, but "Shrek" is still the movie to beat for the Animation Oscar. I've yet to see "Gosford Park", but I've heard nothing but good things about it. The same goes for "Mulholland Drive".

    I really hope these smaller films aren't ignored come Oscar time.

    I like their picks[​IMG]. I wish the Academy would make the same choices but I'm afraid that ain't gonna happen.

    Seth, I believe the L.A Film Critics Awards are scheduled for Saturday, December 15th.

    If you look at a comparison of the two film critics groups with the Academy Awards since 1990, you'll find them matching each other 5 times and matching the Academy only 2 times. Here are the results. I don't know how to do columns so they will be listed as:

    Year - Academy Winner, NYFCC Winner, LAFC Winner

    1990 - Dances With Wolves, Goodfellas, Goodfellas

    1991 - Silence of the Lambs, Silence of the Lambs, Bugsy

    1992 - Unforgiven, The Player, Unforgiven

    1993 - Schindler's List, Schindler's List, Schindler's List

    1994 - Forrest Gump, Quiz Show, Pulp Fiction

    1995 - Braveheart, Leaving Las Vegas, Leaving Las Vegas

    1996 - The English Patient, Fargo, Secrets and Lies

    1997 - Titanic, L.A. Confidential, L.A. Confidential

    1998 - Shakespeare in Love, Saving Private Ryan, Saving Private Ryan

    1999 - American Beauty, Topsy Turvy, The Insider

    2000 - Gladiator, Traffic, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

    As I feared and suspected, Memento will be completely ignored by all.. a pity.

    Interesting, especially that they normally pick films that at least make some decent money.
    The 2 times one didn't were Secrets and Lies and Topsy-Turvey. I liked Topsy, but come on, no way in hell that film was in the running for best picture that year.
    As I've mentioned in the NBR discussion, Amores Perros won't be in the running, but will In the Mood for Love? Since it didn't get "entered" last year thanks to CTHD, does that mean it can be submitted this year?
    Also, it seems strange to me that Memento and Amelie were no where to be found on those lists.
    I also would have to disagree with Buscemi in Ghost World versus Kingsley. Buscemi is solid, but come on, BK is powerful in Sexy Beast.
    I suspect that NYcritics have over amplified Altman's effort, but I HAVE NOT SEEN IT, so who am I to say. [​IMG]
