there is not a list of winners to post yet
just articles,

Quote:
Brad Pitt won best actor for his performances in the baseball film "Moneyball" and Terrence Malick's cosmic drama "Tree of Life."

"Tree of Life" for best cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki

"Moneyball" for Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin's screenplay.

Meryl Steep was chosen as best actress for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming "The Iron Lady."

Jessica Chastain won best supporting actress for a trio of performances in "Tree of Life," ''The Help" and "Take Shelter

Albert Brooks earned best supporting actor for his against-type performance as a violent villain in the drama "Drive

Werner Herzog's 3-D documentary "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" was selected as best nonfiction film.

The financial industry thriller "Margin Call" won best first feature.

And the Iranian drama "A Separation" was picked for best foreign film.

The year's special award was given posthumously to the prolific Chilean-born filmmaker Raoul Ruiz, who died in August, shortly after the U.S. release of his acclaimed "Mysteries of Lisbon."
fair enough selection

there are just two that I could disagree with: Brooks was crap, I liked Drive a lot, but I had to walk out (second viewing) at the ending while his image was still on the screen, just way too much ham on that big screen

Steep playing Thatcher
the previews look like a bad 'Mad TV' sketch.

I'm actually more excited about Rango's win. Hopefully it can stand up to Tintin in the log run.

Whatever you do, please don't post the Cahiers list from this year.

Those people don't have a clue anymore.

I don't know if I should be pleased that Mysteries of Lisbon got three mentions, or enraged that it didn't get more.

These people are supposed to be experts?

Cinema doesn't get much better, in this or any other year.

I'll make myself feel better by assuming many of them didn't get the chance to see it.

I'm assuming most of them saw it in 2010, actually.
