New York Film Critics – Last Minute Predictions?

Tomorrow morning, starting at 7am Pacific, believe it or not, the New York Film critics will announce. We then have two days before National Board of Review and Los Angeles Film critics. The next two weeks are going to be interesting.  Some contenders might shift forward in unexpected ways. No, the critics don’t vote for Oscars. But they can shift momentum, especially for a film or actor who hasn’t really been “in the conversation,” as they irritatingly say.  I guess I can’t it off any longer so here are my predictions for the NYFCC. Would like to hear yours.

Best Film: Zero Dark Thirty (alt. The Master)
Best Director:  Steven Spielberg, Lincoln (alt. Bigelow)
Actor: Daniel Day Lewis, Lincoln (alt. Joaquin Phoenix)
Actress: Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty (alt. Jennifer Lawrence)
Supporting Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Master (alt. Robert DeNiro)
Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, Les Miz
Screenplay: Lincoln (alt. Silver Linings Playbook)
Cinematography: The Master
Documentary: Queen of Versailles (alt. Central Park Five)
Foreign film: Amour
