“The Hurt Locker”

Kathryn Bigelow, “The Hurt Locker”

Best Actor
George Clooney, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Up in the Air”

Best Actress
Meryl Streep, “Julie & Julia”

Best Supporting Actor

Best First Feature
“Hunger”

I must say, I can't believe how much momentum The Hurt Locker has maintained throughout this year into the awards season. This is fantastic. I mean, it's not one of my favorite films of the year, but I'd love nothing more than to see Bigelow take her own award come Oscar night. And did anyone really expect the film to do quite this well so far? This is exciting.

Streep and Clooney from this supposedly more-cultured group is rather pathetic. I really thought Mulligan would win here.
Just more evidence that the Los Angeles critics make consistently better and daring picks.

Nice to see the accolades Mr. Fox is getting over Up, though. Not that it's going to make a whit of difference at the Academy Awards. If it somehow did manage to upset it might even elicit louder cheers from me than the ones for Jeff Bridges.

I think Meryl Streep is brilliant but really hope she doesn't get nominated for "Julie & Julia," it was a good performance in a cute movie but not one of the five best performances of the year. A few of the nominations she's gotten in recent years I think were earned more for her name value than her performance or the greatness of the movie ("The Bridges of Madison County," "One True Thing," "The Devil Wears Prada"). I found a listing of all her Oscar nominations, some are definitely not as strong as others:

1978 (51st)
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE -- The Deer Hunter {"Linda"}
1979 (52nd)
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE -- Kramer vs. Kramer {"Joanna Kramer"} [statuette]
1981 (54th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- The French Lieutenant's Woman {"Sara Woodruff/Anna"}
1982 (55th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Sophie's Choice {"Sophie"} [statuette]
1983 (56th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Silkwood {"Karen Silkwood"}
1985 (58th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Out of Africa {"Karen"}
1987 (60th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Ironweed {"Helen"}
1988 (61st)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- A Cry in the Dark {"Lindy"}
1990 (63rd)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Postcards from the Edge {"Suzanne Vale"}
1995 (68th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- The Bridges of Madison County {"Francesca Johnson"}
1998 (71st)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- One True Thing {"Kate Gulden"}
1999 (72nd)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Music of the Heart {"Roberta Guaspari"}
2002 (75th)
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE -- Adaptation {"Susan Orlean"}
2006 (79th)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- The Devil Wears Prada {"Miranda Priestly"}
2008 (81st)
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE -- Doubt {"Sister Aloysius Beauvier"}

She's awesome, but this point, she can fart in a paper cup and get an Oscar nom.

Golden Globes noms are out, but the highlight is by far Michael Stuhlbarg getting an acting nom, even if A Serious Man got boned everywhere else. The general HFPA starfucking continues, with Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep getting 2 acting noms each, and Julia Roberts got one. Really? That's just lazy. Jeff Bridges still got one for Crazy Heart, but I'd see Clooney, Firth, or Freeman winning this one and Bridges winning the SAG and other acting precursors.

Amazing, Clint gets a nom even though his film isn't one of the ten BP noms. I'm also pissed that the Coens couldn't score more considering the love for THE STUHL! I mean, Nancy Meyers gets a nom for writing It's Complicated? WTF?


And...SHUTTLECOCK!

I have that on Blu-Ray, simply amazing.


( I rather be re-circumcised, than sit through Julie and Julia )

The trailer for It's Complicated is one of the most excruciating things I've ever seen. Whoever sang that "History Repeated" song that's in every trailer with a 40+ year-old woman, and by extension, every Nancy Meyers movie, can be shot. It's all so wacky, yet endearing!

That being said, it's probably better than Julie Is Kind of Boring & Julia Is a Crazy Caricature That Was Probably Done Better by Dan Aykroyd 30 Years Ago.

Are we going to bother doing our own 2009 awards thread/2000s decade awards/whatever this year? I remember last year's didn't really turn out all that great, but we've had some success in the past with those sorts of things.

We should, if only because the last two years we've done it the thread has eventually stayed stickied on the top of Zoo Station until, like, June or July. And I find that amusing.

I just want Christoph Waltz to win an Oscar...that-is-all-I-want

I'm just curious, do you think Star Trek has a chance of being nominated for Best Picture....you know, seeing as there are going to be 10 nominations?

We should do it when the Oscars roll around, but yeah, I'm down.

The National Society of Film Critics, perhaps the most respected organization to give out awards every year, has finally weighed in:

BEST PICTURE
The Hurt Locker

BEST DIRECTOR
Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker

BEST ACTOR
Jeremy Renner, The Hurt Locker

BEST ACTRESS
Yolande Moreau, Seraphine

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (tie)
Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
Paul Schneider, Bright Star

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Mo’Nique, Precious

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Summer Hours

BEST NON-FICTION FILM
The Beaches of Agnes

BEST SCREENPLAY
Joel and Ethan Coen, A Serious Man

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY
Christian Berger, The White Ribbon

BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN
Nelson Lowry, Fantastic Mr. Fox

***

I'm pretty pleased, even though much of this is more of the same. Glad they recognized THE SCHNEID! and the Serious Man screenplay. Plus, no Meryl Streep is always refreshing. I actually just downloaded Seraphine and will be checking it out soon.
