Oscars Watch: 2014 Nevada Film Critics Society Awards

Nevada strays completely from the pack and gives “Gone Girl” its first Best Film of the Year win. It really is a great film and should get some recognition come Academy Award time but one vote isn’t going to do it much. “Nightcrawler” also gets some love, both for Dan Gilroy (Director and Screenplay) and Jake Gyllenhaal. “Big Hero 6” also gets one of … Read More Oscars Watch: 2014 Nevada Film Critics Society Awards

Oscars Watch: 2014 Online Film Critics Society Awards

This late in the game, you are not making a splash anymore unless you are like the San Diego Film Critics naming “Nightcrawler” the Best Film of the year or the Online Film Critics naming “The Grand Budapest Hotel” the best.

Oscars Watch: 2014 Kansas City Film Critics Circle Awards

Splitting the Best Film / Best Director vote like I am beginning to predict, Kansas City gives Best Film to “Birdman” and Best Director to Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”). I also think Michael Keaton may have the best shot to win Best Actor for “Birdman” and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) for Best Supporting Actress. It is also great to see “Obvious Child” getting some screenplay love. … Read More Oscars Watch: 2014 Kansas City Film Critics Circle Awards
