Critics Awards All Over the Map

17 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Three groups of critics . two on the East Coast, one on the West . recently chimed in with their picks for the year's best, and they were pretty much all over the map. Film critics in Los Angeles and Boston announced their choices over the weekend, with About Schmidt charming L.A. and the critics of Beantown making a surprise choice with Roman Polanski's The Pianist. The New York Film Critics Circle added to the obfuscation of any Oscar favorites by going with art house fave Far From Heaven. In fact, the New Yorkers bestowed five awards on Todd Haynes' ode to Douglas Sirk: Picture, Supporting Actor (Dennis Quaid), Supporting Actress (Patricia Clarkson), Director, and Cinematography. In a surprise upset, Diane Lane was chosen best actress over Heaven's Julianne Moore for her performance in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful; Daniel Day-Lewis walked away with the lead actor award for Gangs of New York. In Los Angeles, About Schmidt's Jack Nicholson tied with Day-Lewis for the lead actor award, while Julianne Moore picked up the Best Actress award for both Far From Heaven and The Hours. Other L.A. awards included Chris Cooper (supporting actor for Adaptation), Edie Falco (supporting actress for Sunshine State) and Pedro Almodovar (director for Talk To Her). Boston critics heaped awards on The Pianist's Adrien Brody (lead actor) and Roman Polanski (director), and made other surprise choices for lead actress (Maggie Gyllenhaal for Secretary), supporting actor (Alan Arkin for 13 Conversations About One Thing) and supporting actress (Toni Collette, named for both About a Boy and The Hours). All the critics did agree on one thing, though: Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien was named best foreign film by all three groups. --Prepared by IMDb staff »

National Board of Review Names 'The Hours' Best Film

4 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

It's that time already -- the 2002 awards season kicked off Wednesday with the National Board of Review bestowing top honors on Stephen Daldry's The Hours, which nabbed the group's best film of the year award. Lead acting awards went to Campbell Scott for his little-seen turn as a bitter ladies' man in Roger Dodger, while Julianne Moore picked up the first of probably many accolades for her acclaimed performance as a `50s housewife in Far From Heaven. Supporting nods went to Chris Cooper for his portrayal of orchid thief John Laroche in Spike Jonze's Adaptation, and Kathy Bates for her work in the Jack Nicholson comedy About Schmidt. Australian director Phillip Noyce scored a two-fer for best director, with the board citing his work for both The Quiet American and Rabbit-Proof Fence, while screenwriter Charlie Kaufman pulled a hat trick, being named screenwriter of the year for Adaptation, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Human Nature. --Prepared by IMDb staff »
