  1. Now this is what I’m talking about.

  2. I concur, particularly with supporting actor

  3. Really? Um, no. “Gravity” not even in the top three? No Matthew Mc for “Dallas Buyers Club” and Jared Leto number 3??? No. Nope.

  4. Jared Leto’s work is the most over praised performance of the year, maybe the past 2 years. If he loses the Oscar I’ll cheer

  5. Amy Adams as runner-up? Wow, the ‘American Hustle’ momentum is certainly peaking…

  6. This is a wonderful list of winners.

  7. Finally, a group that got “Best Supporting Actor” right! Go Fassbender!

  8. Fassy good-but-not-so-great performance in 12YAS isn’t even close to the best supporting performance of 2013 aka Leto’s, I guess they felt sorry for his lack of wins so far and decided to spread the love.

  9. Buford T Justice

    Except for Fassbender , this is what Oscar night should look like but it wont ; they are having trouble embrasing 12 YAS even though they’ve had enough chances ; instead of collectively holding ther noses and swallowing the medicine they are refusing and looking around for an alternative

  10. That’s my state! Doin’ it up right. Although I would have Gravity in 3rd instead of AH. They did a better job with Director than Film in that regard, but oh well.

    This looks good.
    Can someone tell me — when you win a critics award, do they give you a certificate or a statue or something like that? Or do they just write and let you know?

  12. Snore!!!
