The Critics Choice awards are going to be this Thursday night, the same day as Oscar nominations. We have a contest for you to enter your predictions. You can also do that over at Gold Derby. Since they’re coming out after Oscar ballots have been turned in, and occurring on the same day as the Oscar nominations, what Oscar voters do will no effect on what the BFCA do. For instance, they could award Tom Hooper Best Director and Tom Hooper might not even get an Oscar nomination. That sort of thing. 2012 is just that kind of year. Someone toppled the house of cards and we have no idea where anything is going to land.
But you can enter our contest if you’d like. Here are my rough predictions – but I must stipulate, figuring out what the BFCA is going to do is near impossible.
