    I had a feeling that Best Picture was going to be The Artist!

    Nice to see Jessica Chastain get recognition.

    IMO the cinematography of Tree of Life was over the top- unnecessary movements and angles of the camera. There are movies with better (appropriate) cinematography. TOL almost hurt my eyes.

    I had not heard of 'The artist'. I will definitely watch it.

    I saw a clip of Meryl in the Iron Lady and it really was incredible. The film is not released in Australia yet but I am really looking forward to seeing it.

    I like that the European awards have a people's choice category. And whether Lars likes it or not he and Susanne Bier share these awards this year. Interesting.

    50/50 was really great, funny and touching. I totally cried.

    I haven't seen The Iron Lady yet, but I did see Albert Nobbs and I'm disappointed that Glenn Close hasn't gotten any awards love yet. She was fantastic and the movie is really heartbreaking. I'd put Janet McTeer in the running for Supporting Actress awards as well.

    I saw 'The Artist' in my film preview film club. I loved it, very fun movie, audience really loved it. We had a discussion afterwards, and it was pointed out how authentic much of the movie was in the making, very respectful to silent movies. Acting was great. I found out the 2 leads are married in real life. I loved how the story was not as you would expect. The Dog was fab, as was John Goodman.

    Jean Dujardin is married to Alexandra Lamy (who doesn't play in The Artist).
    I was also very impressed by the movie, I never expected to enjoy it that much! :)

    Do you guys think The Artist will win the Oscar for best movie? What's your guess? It's not playing in my area yet.

    It's highly likely to be nominated, but the race is wide open this year. ("The Descendants," "War Horse," "Hugo," "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," "Moneyball," "The Help," "Midnight in Paris" are all other potential nominees).

    "The Artist" is absolutely brilliant, and the best film I have seen so far this year, although I haven't been to the movies as often as I would like. It will be interesting to see if a mostly silent, black and white movie can catch on with a wide audience however. Hopefully it will, because it really is an enchanting delight, and Jean DuJardin is wonderful.

    In the Film Club the guest speaker that is a film expert said this, strange to be wrong on something like that. We had seen Dujardin in another film a few years ago - OSS117 - which was hilarious.

    Re - Oscars - with 10 nominations, I can see this getting nominated. As I said I liked the movie, but it something you can recommend to just about everybody. (not counting a coworker, very young, said 'why would you want to see a silent movie?')

    That's just the wrong association. Bérénice Béjo is the companion of Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist's (and both OSS movies') director. They have 2 kids. The last one is born last September.

    Which OSS 117 did you see ? Rio or Cairo ? Béjo played in Cairo. It was the same trio Hazanavicius - Dujardin - Béjo.

    They have changed the Academy balloting system (again), so there may not be 10 nominees. The minimum will be five, the maximum would be 10, but it could be any number in between as well.

    Maybe. It's not in wide release yet.

    Looks like Janet was four more movies short of having a chance with the LA critics. :lol:

    I do like how some of these awards are for an actor/actress and their body of work for the year. Good publicity for multiple films and to highlight their range.

    Could a moderator rename this thread to indicate that it's about various film awards and not just the New York Film Critics Circle ones, please?

    I like the New York Film Critics Circle award winners. Good choices. :)

    That was the idea though. "Tree of Life" is a very visual film.

    It's definitely very divisive. Some love that about it, others despise it and slate it for being pretentious.

    Oh dear. I don't know whether to :rofl: or :scream:.

    European Film Awards Winners

    I am still in two minds about "Melancholia". I loved the first part, didn't like the second and Kirsten Dunst really annoyed me. There was something special about that film. Or was it overwrought, pretentious shit? I don't really know.

    Bier's "Haevnen" is incredible, as is her previous work ("Open Hearts" is one of my favourite films ever, the way it shows the relationships between people is fantastic). I'm happy she got more recognition.

    My sentiments exactly except for Dunst. The film is beautifully crafted, and the main big part was had some entertainment. I did find Dunst was pretty good.
    The overture was interesting.
    I saw this film in my preview film club, before release with discussion after, and about 200+ attend. When the second part was labelled, someone in audience said out loud 'Oh No' - lots of laughter.
    At first when the movie was over, I was WTF, but I do find I think about it.
    It has stuck in my mind and got me thinking.
    One of the big topics in the discussion was about the von Trier and his controversies. Then I wonder if, like you said, it is pretentious shit.
    In the film club we have to fill out a review card, and the question - would you recommend this film to:
    -everyone
    -no one
    -or select people - I checked this one and wrote in 'very few'.

    Yeah, visually it was absolutely stunning.

    And the dysfunctional family relationships in the Overture were interestingly portrayed.

    But I don't know what to think about the second part. Was it really saying anything? Or was it form over content?

    It would be actually great to read either a very well written, insightful review or some academic piece on that film in order to open up more interpretative possibilities.

    I do agree with you, though not singling out a film a particular may leave the studios confused as to which film to campaign the actor/actress for come awards later in the year, where a specific film is required on the ballot.

    Argh! Damages and its cast was robbed. I hope the Emmys don't ignore it come next September.

    I noticed Terry Gilliam won a European Film award for his short film called "The Wholly Family." I like Gilliam and this looks odd and wonderful. Hopefully there will be some way to see it.

    I still think Rose Byrne was robbed in the second season of that show where she was sooooo good.
