Armond White tossed from the New York Film Critics The story goes that contrarian film critic Armond White was heckling Steve McQueen as he took the stage for the New York Film Critics – this, being the first time any ...

Astonishingly, it  looks as if the NYFCC might be impotent when it comes time to scold their star weasel, Armond White. The group could try to claim that there’s no way to deal with the exhibitionist prick stinking up their ...

The one thing anyone could talk about at last night’s New York film critics was Harry Belafonte’s speech to Steve McQueen. It deserves to be separate from the mischegoss of Armond White’s baby tantrum but that was the other thing ...

Armond White, who has gotten too much press already for his infantile outburst at the New York Film Critics Awards, must be loving the attention.  But he brought shame on the entire organization when he “heckled” (a nice word for ...

The New York Film Critics pushed back their dates (now voting December 3) so that they could announce before the National Board of Review (December 4). They did it to be out front of awards season and to be the ...

It’s hard to believe a whole year has flown by that we were all studiously predicting The Tree of Life and Hugo to win Best Picture at the New York Film Critics only to then see that award go to ...

Believe it or not, these awards are coming in two weeks. We’re starting our contest early! In our latest podcast, Craig, Ryan and I do a little spitballing as to how these things will turn out. We hover around the ...

Indiewire reports that the NBR will take place December 5, 2012, two days after the New York Film Critics and three days after their announcing date last year. What is the significance of this? There isn’t one except that the ...

After all of their drama about changing their date and forcing the Dragon Tattoo to be screened too early, in the end the awards, for the most part, were fairly predictable.  The Artist was my early prediction, I then switched ...
