2011 Critics Awards - Final


With today's announcement by the National Society of Film Critics we close this post to be final as has almost the winners of all listed groups -except for one.

Critics didn't concentrate their honors into one particular movie like happened last year, nevertheless we know that the film with more wins is The Artist followed by The Tree of Life and The Descendants. Congruently with the best film category Michel Hazanavicius leads the best director tally but then incorporates two new films as is followed by Nicolas Winding Refn and Martin Scorsese.

Michelle Williams is the actress with more wins followed by Tilda Swinton; other winners like Viola Davis and Meryl Streep are far away from the first two. Jessica Chastain leads the Best Supporting Actress wins, followed close by (that's a surprise for me) Shailene Woodley in The Descendats, Octavia Spencer in The Help, and Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids.

Best Actor has three close actors, but is George Clooney who got the most wins, followed by Michael Fassbender and Michael Shannon. Best Supporting Actor has Albert Brooks leading the pack with Christopher Plummer following far away.

I know that critics are not Academy members but also know that they do honor some of the movies that later will get Oscar nominations. I imagine that soon my crystal ball will be used to give my best Oscar guesses and surely critics will help me to guess better.

Cheers!

As there were several announcements during the weekend and specially today, decided to do the first update to this post that will continue to change until becomes final. Up to this moment, The Artist seems to be popular among critics and no other category seems to have a clear trend, except for Best Supporting Actress that is not listed here but where many are starting to agree.
