    I agree with most of these nominations, although I have not seen The master and Les Mis and a few others.

    You should check out the BBC miniseries North and South based on the Elizabeth Gaskell novel. He's excellent in that.

    I love these categories in the Critics Choice awards. Can James Bond/Daniel Craig win this one? I think the female award will go to Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger games) even though Judi Dench was excellent in Skyfall.

    ACTOR IN AN ACTION MOVIE
    Christian Bale – “The Dark Knight Rises”
    Daniel Craig – “Skyfall”
    Robert Downey Jr. – “The Avengers”
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt – “Looper”
    Jake Gyllenhaal – “End of Watch”


    ACTRESS IN AN ACTION MOVIE
    Emily Blunt – “Looper”
    Gina Carano – “Haywire”
    Judi Dench – “Skyfall”
    Anne Hathaway – “The Dark Knight Rises”
    Jennifer Lawrence – “The Hunger Games”

    So what awards that are not the Oscars carry the most weight with Oscar voters? I'm always curious about the Bafta's but then I'm not an Oscar voter (oh but I wish I was!)

    The Actor Guiles Award probably carries the most weight outside of the Oscar in the U.S., since the winners are determined by their peers.

    I think you mean the SAG awards (Screen Actors' Guild)........... they carry weight for the acting awards, obviously. They have the best ensemble award, instead of best picture. In the past the SAG awards had been very good predictors of the Oscars. Now a little less, but still pretty good.

    I think the Golden Globes have been pretty good predictors of Oscars in the last 3-4 years. Prior to that, sometimes the GG award winners were a big surprise (e.g. Jim Carey). They don't carry as much weight as the SAG for the actors, I think, but they still are respected, as any award would be. They are also widely watched (on major networks in the USA) which is another advantage for the nominees and the winners.

    IMHO the BAFTA does not carry a lot of weight with the Oscar voters because the BAFTAs are heavily tilted toward British actors and movies- just my impression.

    Guild Awards (like actor's guilds, producer's guilds, director's guild, etc.) carry more weight than Critic circles or organizations.

    Other award shows like the Golden Globes and BAFTAs tend to have a lot of correlation as well.

    I think you're right, but Haywire was a pretty good movie.

    There was talk about Jim Carrey being nominated for an Academy Award before, most notably for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And maybe for Man on the Moon and The Truman Show as well? I thought he was quite good in "I Love You Phillip Morris" as well.

    By the way, I see at imdb.com that in 2014, we will be seeing Carrey in "Dumb and Dumber To".
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Back off, he's mine!

    I've been drooling over Richard Armitage since Cold Feet, but it was his his leather-trouser-wearing Guy of Gisbourne and his dark-and-brooding-is-he-or-isn't-he-a-double-agent in Spooks that put me over the top.

    Can't say his look in The Hobbit is my favourite ... but I'm not complaining.

    I wonder if Hugh Jackman lobbied for him since they're pretty good friends. Wish Alan Rickman was in the role instead.

    "Lincoln" and "Les Miz" top Golden Globe nominations.

    Surprise love for "Salmon Fishing in Yemen" and another supporting actress nod for Nicole Kidman in the other-wise critically drubbed "The Paperboy." (She scored a SAG nomination earlier this week.)

    This is the most support for "Django Unchained" we've see as well. The review are love-it-or-hate-it apparently.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Oh. My. God. This scene just slays me....

    And if you haven't reached for a hankie yet, how about Emma's goodbye scene?

    Saw Salmon Fishing in the Yemen via Netflix recently; fastest cure for my insomnia I have ever had. Was stunned at how boring it was.

    I just noticed that The Hobbit hasn't gotten any award notices. Are the critics lukewarm about it?
