    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
