Not too far from now, the Critics Choice will begin handing out their awards. The big question is really what is going to win Best Picture. We probably won’t know for sure until the Producers Guild on Sunday. If the SAG ensemble and the Producers Guild match then the mystery might be over. Gravity, it’s worth noting, is not nominated for the SAG but it might win the PGA, putting…

One of several blunt instruments we can use to pound out a sense of what’s percolating up to the top tier of the year in film. If you need a reminder than these scores don’t always translate into actual awards heat, bear in mind that Me and Orson Welles has a BFCA score of 100 — and the Critics Choice voters themselves didn’t even chose it as one of their…
