  1. Wasn’t aware of these guys. Shame that the only critics group this year to recognise Keep the Lights On is the gay one – like duh. Also a shame that they’ve snubbed Thure Lindhardt. Still getting over him in that film. Fucking Bradley Cooper wanker.

  2. AnthonyP

    Not sure the point of a film award based on sexual orientation.
    I understand awards that praise positive views of LGBT in film, but I’m not sure of the distinction of, say, Argo as a best picture voted on by LGBT.

  3. WTF? I respectfully suggest a People’s Choice thread discussion, because if you can find room for this obscure outfit, then you certainly can swallow your pride and include the first movie awards show of 2013 to be televised.

    Thanks.

  4. AnthonyP

    Does this mean there are no gay critics contributing to the Critic’s choice awards?

  5. Bryce Forestieri

    LES MIZ has this one in the bag

  6. And now Hathaway is leading for her 15 minutes performance?
    It’s really a weirdo year…

  7. Not sure the point of a film award based on sexual orientation.

    The point of the LGBT award is to champion LGBT film. But then…

    I understand awards that praise positive views of LGBT in film, but I’m not sure of the distinction of, say, Argo as a best picture voted on by LGBT.

    …you say you understand awards like that. An immediate contradiction. And I know, right? All the gay people I’ve spoken to hated Argo.

    I do not get your point, AnthonyP, and I’m not sure I like what it might be.

  8. I respectfully suggest you suck an egg

  9. Fabinho, it’s an amalgamated category. Leading and supporting.

  10. rufussondheim

    Glad to see somebody recognize Gayby, an awkward little film was some hysterical dialogue.

    Gay people often have a different perspective than straight people. That’s why these awards exist.

  11. I have Gayby at home from Blockbuster Online. Reviews were pretty great.

    I am disappointed they didn’t give The Perks of Being a Wallflower more recognition. I mean really? I’d think that would be a no-brainer.

    I’m really happy to see all of the love for Happy Endings! Brilliant show! That and Don’t Trust The B are two of the best TV comedies right now. If you’re not watching them get to it!

  12. rufussondheim

    It had been awhile since i had seen a low-budget gay film, so when I started Gayby I was disappointed in the low production values and the unpolished performances. But once I calibrated myself, I enjoyed it a great deal. I would have put it on my Original Screenplay AD awards list if it had been eligible.

  13. AnthonyP

    Fear not, Paddy. I am not disagreeing with having a Gay and Lesbian Critics Association.

  14. steve50

    Why separate LGBT Fllm of the Year and Film of the Year? Do we need another of the latter, anyway? Not too keen on Cloud Atlas labeled as “campy”, either.

    Overall, some good, fun categories, though.

  15. cinejab

    Sasha, No Guts No Glory Oscar post?

  16. alan of montreal

    As a gay man, I think this critics’ list leaves much to be desired. I mean, look at their “newcomer” nominees. Ben Whishaw? Didn’t they see I’m Not There directed by gay directing god Todd Haynes? And Whishaw was even around before that! And wasn’t Darren Criss’ rendition of “Teenage Dream” from 3 seasons ago? Or did they seriously re-hash it last year (I stopped watching a while ago). It almost seems as if this group of critics is a step behind everyone else.

  17. My mouth is agape. Not at Sandra Bullock’s touching People’s Choice Award speech, but at the fact that LIZ & DICK, HONEY BOO BOO, and THE PAPERBOY are nominated for critics’ awards.

  18. @alan of montreal, to be fair, Darren Criss re-did Teenage Dream while visiting Kurt and apologizing for being unfaithful. Not a good year for Glee.
