    Chastain’s win is missing from the list of winners (though mentioned in the article).

  • I loved their nominations, and I love their winners. Hooray for the CFCA!

  • Davey

    Somehow a movie being the cover story instead of the tragedy in Connecticut seems poor judgment on Tina Brown’s part or whoever made that decision at Newsweek. No wonder the print version is going belly up.

    Always solid with Chicago’s picks and they came through again.

  • I know critics don’t vote for the Oscars but they DO influence films’ perceptions therefore they still count, so :

    Anne Hathaway again for BSA. Goodbye Sally Field’s perfect 3 for 3. I’m so sad. I’m so pissed. Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    St. Louis Film Critics have announced their winners:

    Phantom, but The Social Network’s Oscar defeat proves otherwise.

    At this point, I’m only considering the possible nominees, not the winners…and the ones who are doing well in this stage, are all but guaranteed the nomination, as well.

    AND my list above is already irrelevant, there are now 15 BP-winners.

  • Supporting Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Master
    Supporting Actress: Amy Adams, The Master


    It sounds like music for me…

  • The Dude

    Considering how last year’s winners fared at the Oscars, winning this isn’t good news.

  • Jack Traven II

    Too bad that Argo didn’t get any love from the film critics of my favorite US city. 🙁
