    Anne Hathaway keeps rolling as BSA. Wahhhhhh. It’s official. Goodbye Sally Field’s perfect 3 for 3 record. Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I’m so sad. I’m so pissed.

    What are the odds Sally Field doesn’t get nominated for Oscar?

    I suppose you’re right Sasha. By the way I’m a big fan of your website.:)

    Archie, the odds of SF getting a BSA Oscar nom are 1:1.

    If the Oscars turned out like these awards did, I would actually be fine with that — except screenplay. Kushner over Terrio is a much better result. ZDT would get left out in the cold, but someone has to draw the short straw.

    I just looked further down and saw The Intouchables over Amour. Never mind. Fuck these awards.

    This is a good list of winners. I am noticing that with The Master topping a feww picture wins yeterday and Argo getting this that 0D30 is the “top” critical darling of the year. Sure it’s winning plenty but it’s also coming in 2nd place here and there. I’m wondering what’ll happen come Oscar time…

    I don’t know how a critics group may make a list of best of cinema of 2012 when they didn’t see Rust and Bone, one of the best picture of 2012 with the best female performance of this year, Marion Cotillard.

    daneymichal,

    I knew Sally Field will be nominated for BSA. I was just being ironic because I’d rather have her not be nominated so they don’t ruin her perfect track record. There’s no way in hell she won’t be nominated. Hehehe!

  12. December 17, 2012

    Oh I did like the Southeastern Film Critics Association until now. Not up for this. Argo is fine, but I can’t get behind it winning this big, nor The Intouchables beating Amour. Tut tut tut.

    ARGO´S DAY!

    ARGO FUCK YOURSELF! :D

    And no Hathaway… and no Field.

    Save Hunt and Adams!
