Oscar Circuit Round-Up: Dec 16
Aside from the 84th Annual Academy Awards™, there was no bigger week this year at The Awards Circuit than this one. Sunday began with three critics groups — Los Angeles Film Critics Association, Boston Film Critics and New York Film Critics Online — announcing their winners and runners-up for the best in Film 2012. Zero Dark Thirty continued its dominance with the critics groups, but wavering contenders like Dwight Henry and Joaquin Phoenix a hefty boost by winning “Best Supporting Actor” and “Best Actor,” respectively, from LAFCA.
As this was going on, we managed to successfully debut our first-ever LIVE Power Hour Podcast. Ann Dowd, winner of the National Board of Review’s “Best Supporting Actress” award, was an utter delight as our guest and we wish her all the best in this highly competitive awards season.
Here are some other key awards groups/critics associations that announced either their winners or nominees: Washington Film Critics, American Film Institute, San Diego Film Critics Society, Detroit Film Critics, Phoenix Film Critics, St. Louis Film Critics, Las Vegas Film Critics, and Chicago Film Critics. Out of breath yet? Me too!
And, of course, the BIG THREE: Broadcast Film Critics Association, Screen Actors Guild and Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
