New York Film Critics Circle Awards

The New York Film Critics Circle has released their list of honorees for their annual awards.  In my previous post, I mentioned a new found need to see Drive, and that need is confirmed, as they've chosen Albert Brooks as their Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film.  Critics are known for creating, fostering, or killing buzz, but it's important to remember that critics don't actually vote for Oscar nominees.  However, the Golden Globes are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of international journalists and critics.

The Artist was chosen as Best Picture, and if you haven't heard of it, check out the trailer - it's a silent film that takes you back to 1920's Hollywood:

Here are the list of winners:

Best Picture The Artist
Best Cinematography Emmanuel Lubezki, The Tree of Life
Best Screenplay Steven Zaillian & Aaron Sorkin, Moneyball
Best Director Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
Best Foreign Language Film A Separation
Best Actor Brad Pitt, Moneyball & The Tree of Life
Best Actress Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Best Supporting Actor Albert Brooks, Drive
Best Supporting Actress Jessica Chastain, The Tree of Life, The Help, and Take Shelter
Best First Feature Margin Call
Best Non-Fiction Film Cave of Forgotten Dreams
