    Breakthrough performance voting going on…

    Breakthrough Performance goes to Jessica Chastain for SIX stellar performances. No brainer, eh?

  3. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Jessica Chastain wins Breakthrough Performance – and why not!!!

  4. Noah
    December 11, 2011

    Oh, they seem quite adamant that the category is Breakthrough PERFORMER. Fits just as well.

  5. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Saw that one coming by a mile. My only other guess would’ve been Rooney Mara for TGWTDT if they wanted to give something for that movie. Hopefully it could get Best Music.

  6. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Ok, Jessica Chastain wins Breakthrough Performer…

  7. Bogdan
    December 11, 2011

    Completle agree with New York – what concerns Jessica Chastain. Let’s see their next decisions…

  8. Massimo
    December 11, 2011

    well deserved win for Chastain…. brad pitt needs to beat clooney again boston chose him LA and NY need to follow suit!

  9. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Why not give supp. Actress to Jessica Chastain and get it done with???

  10. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Melissa McCarthy won for Bridesmaids!

  11. Noah
    December 11, 2011

    Love the McCarthy wins today! Now can it get some screenplay recognition for Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo…?

  12. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Melissa McCarthy could reserve her seats for the Oscars by this rate!!

  13. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Supporting actor votes…

  14. Noah
    December 11, 2011

    Albert Brooks. I kind of hope LA goes for someone else just to mix things up.

  15. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    YES! Albert Brooks again for Drive!

  16. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    Brooks is cleaning up today

  17. Tero Heikkinen
    December 11, 2011

    “Melissa McCarthy could reserve her seats for the Oscars by this rate!”

    Is that a fat-joke?

  18. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Albert Brooks – oh yeah, he’s wiping the floor!!

  19. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    At LAFCA, Christopher Plummer won Best Supporting Actor (possibly Brooks’ closest competitor)

  20. GoOnNow
    December 11, 2011

    how many of those has Brooks cleaned up so far?

    3 or 4?

  21. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    I still think Brooks will win the gold because Drive is also getting noms for other categories like Best Picture and Director as well. Not to mention it won earlier today for Music. That increases its chances whereas Beginners only has Christopher Plummer and not much other back up except the Independent Spirit Awards and Gothom Awards. I’m for Drive though I do wish the best of luck for Plummer as well. He should’ve been nominated 12 years ago for The Insider.

  22. G
    December 11, 2011

    So glad Albert brooks is doing so well and happy for Jessica!

  23. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    @Tero Heikkinen: It was only after I submitted the comment did I realise what I had typed…

  24. Noah
    December 11, 2011

    According to Katey Rich, Chastain was the overwhelming favorite for Breakthrough, but caused a major split for Supp Actress. Mulligan was the close second for Shame. Interesting.

  25. Alfredo
    December 11, 2011

    Brooks is on a roll!

  26. Tero Heikkinen
    December 11, 2011

    He would be a sure-winner for Oscar if he used his real name – Albert Einstein :)

  27. kerchee
    December 11, 2011

    BEST SCREENPLAY – ALEXANDER PAYNE, NAT FAXON, JIM RASH for The Descendant

  28. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    @Tero Heikkinen: I was astounded when I came to know that his real surname is Einstein!!!

  29. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    ‘The Descendants’ won Best Screenplay. ‘Moneyball’ won at Boston!!

  30. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Melissa McCarthy’s win isn’t listed on here…

  31. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    And the Tree of Life won Cinematography. Again, Scott fails.

  32. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    The Tree of Life wins Best Cinematography…Scott, where are you??

  33. Bogdan
    December 11, 2011

    Who is really runner-up in best screenplay?

  34. Tero Heikkinen
    December 11, 2011

    Cinematography is the only category that is a bit boring, cause one movie will win everything all the way to the Oscars. But yeah, a truly worthy winner.

    We’ve had more predictable years. If 2011 is predictable only in one category, it’s a good thing.

  35. gerard kennelly
    December 11, 2011

    i think fassbender will win the oscar

    but i am very surprised
    that he is not winning the critics awards

    they are always the ones
    who recognise the brave anti hollywood performances

  36. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    This is nuts! I don’t know how Ryan is keeping up.

  37. Macy
    December 11, 2011

    Best Use of Music – The Artist…

  38. Kholby
    December 11, 2011

    Jessica Chastain, the Jude Law of 2011.

  39. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    I doubt that Gerard.

    BEST DIRECTOR – MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS for The Artist

  41. December 11, 2011

    They said it was a tie for Director and then they only put one?

  42. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    I saw that, too.

  43. Alfredo
    December 11, 2011

    Melissa McCarthy!!!

  44. Tero Heikkinen
    December 11, 2011

    Melissa? That’s a weird tie for Director.

    Are they not awarding Foreign Language Films at all?

  45. Deena Jones' wig
    December 11, 2011

    What’s up with this Melissa girl winning these awards????

  46. Heath87
    December 11, 2011

  47. Glenn UK
    December 11, 2011

  51. kerchee

    BEST ACTRESS – MERYL STREEP for “The Iron Lady” (on a close third round vote)

  52. Matt
    December 11, 2011

    Viola Davis is the Runner Up for The Help. Looks like a 3 way race to Oscar between Meryl Michelle and Viola.

  53. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    Davis runner up

  54. December 11, 2011

  56. December 11, 2011

    Surprising finalists? Oooooo…….

  57. steve50

    Holy Shit – Michael Shannon!

  58. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Best Actor: Michael Shannon for Take Shelter!

  59. Nic V
    December 11, 2011

    This Melissa thing is a joke and a rather sad joke at that. Jessica Chastain gets a breaththrough award for some incredible performances and Melissa Mc Carthy wins BSA. And my complaint isn’t about Ms. McCarthy I’ve seen her on a few talk shows and actually liked her persona but to have her given this award by these various critics groups and shutting out really damn good performances makes me just shake my head. Hell as much as I hated Tree of Life I would have given Jesscia Chastain the supporting actress award over Mc Carthy any day. And no where is Octavia Spencer to be seen. Something just isn’t right here and I don’t like what I’m actually thinking because I find that when people use that as an excuse it irritates me but boy it’s looking to me like it’s smelling really bad.

  60. kerchee
    December 11, 2011

    WOW

  61. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    Fassbender and Oldman runnersup

  62. December 11, 2011

    Dammit. Gary almost made it.

  63. The Ogre
    December 11, 2011

    Finally Shannon gets some love!

  64. Heath87
    December 11, 2011

    What a SURPRISE! Michael Shannon! But i don’t think this will much impact the race…actually i don’t think he will even be nominated…

  65. Deena Jones' wig
    December 11, 2011

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS MERYL!!! SNATCH THOSE WIGS GUUURL

  66. steve50

    ANOTHER round three vote – ensemble

  67. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    bridesmaids

  68. December 11, 2011

    I dunno. I didn’t see it. But that ensemble surprises me. With all the huge dramatic casts. Interesting.

  69. The Ogre
    December 11, 2011

    Man Bridesmaids beating Tinker Tailor for best ensemble is crazy.

  70. steve50
    December 11, 2011

    The Artist

    Best Picture: THE ARTIST

  72. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Really? We’re just gonna award the painfully obvious winner and just forget the documentaries, foreign films and animated features?

  73. PaulH
    December 11, 2011

    The gimmick silent movie wins again…it’s nothing but a gimmick, people.

  74. Ryman
    December 11, 2011

    Wait never mind, they’re gonna award the other categories as well. I guess they wanted to get the painfully obvious out of the way first and THEN go back to the suspense.

  75. Glenn UK
    December 11, 2011

    As one lot of New York Critics had already awarded Meryl it seems fairly obvious that problably the same New York Critics (but online) voted for her again at another ceremony – painting by numbers!!!!

  76. john b
    December 11, 2011

    nice to see that the Best Actor race isn’t a one guy shutout like its been every year since i can remember.

  77. December 11, 2011

    The Artist – The new Shakespeare in Love

    K. Bowen:

    NOW – with quality.

  79. Anna

    Michael Shannon, YES!!!!!!

  80. Deena Jones' wig
    December 11, 2011

    I’m really bumped about the Keira Knightley snub this season. Her performance in A Dangerous Method is my favourite performance of the year. Sucks!

  81. Gustavo
    December 11, 2011

    I’m happy about Meryl, but it was expected for her to emerge victorious at the New York circuit. Let’s see how well she fares throughout the rest of the country… I still think Michelle Williams has the edge over her.

  82. brandz
    December 11, 2011

    Happy for Streep. NY seems to LOVE her.

    Looks like the Oscars are wide open, in all categories.

  83. December 11, 2011

    I think whats happening with Take Shelter / Michael Shannon is that most critics missed it in the theaters, I had to fight to get Sony to send the screener to our group then they fell in love, thus why it ended up on our top 10 best picture list at the HFCS and Shannon got a nod. I think he could very likely get in at the Academy because they proved they liked him before in Rev. Road, and this is one of the most extrodinary performances of the entire 2011 year!

    I have to second what Nic V said about Melissa McCarthy. She is awesome of course, but BSA? Over any of Chastain’s performances? Or Octavia Spencer’s? It is a joke….it is as if they are just trying to get her the Oscar nom! While she was really funny and good, the performance is NOT great! This is… I love fat people, they are so funny! Sorry it’s true. Jane Lynch has been giving that same performance for years…Also….Bridesmaids for Ensemble? Really?
