2010 New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Seems that the NYFCC does not believe in the power of internet as it’s almost 24 hours since they announced the award winners and the official site still has the 2009 winners at the home page; not to mention that logo has 2008 on it, which is when got the ‘new’ design. For the record winners will be here, but have no idea when.

Still this is a very influential group so here are the winners from another reliable source, my favorite net writer, Mr. Peter Knegt.

Best Film: The Social Network
Best Director: David Fincher for The Social Network
Best Screenplay: The Kids Are All Right
Best Actress: Annette Bening in The Kids Are All Right
Best Actor: Colin Firth in The King’s Speech
Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo in The Fighter
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Ruffalo in The Kids Are All Right
Best Cinematography: Black Swan
Best Animated Film: The Illusionist
Best Non-fiction Film: Inside Job
Best Foreign Language Film: Carlos
Best First Feature: Animal Kingdom

Been wanting to comment that I’m really curious to find which version of Carlos critics were able to watch; my guess is that since they are honoring the movie in feature film categories, they had to watch the shorter version.

Up to this moment the only awards show that nominated Carlos in the category that belongs is the Golden Globes where got nods as Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. The key words are “Made for Television” which is what this film is.

Think that I’m getting curious about the shorter version of Carlos, but will watch after I forget plot in the TV version.
