The Broadcast Film Critics Association have announced the nominations for the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, with Damien Chazelle’s La La Land leading the field with 12 nominations in total, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Ryan Gosling) and Best Actress (Emma Stone).
Moonlight and Arrival both scored ten nominations apiece, and will contest Best Picture with La La Land against Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Lion, Loving, Manchester by the Sea and Sully.
Here’s the full list of nominations…

After the first week of critics’ groups announcing their picks, we have a trifecta of Oscar frontrunners: Amazon/Roadside’s “Manchester by the Sea,” A24’s “Moonlight,” and Lionsgate’s “La La Land.” These are the same films that triumphed on the fall film festival circuit, benefitting from the slow and steady drumbeat of media attention as well as relentless awards campaigning.
Among those that found no love from critics were the late arrivals: Ben Affleck’s “Live By Night,” Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” Weinstein Co.’s “The Founder” and “Gold,” and Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” were shutouts. Snubs met veteran Oscar winners Robert Zemeckis, Ang Lee, Warren Beatty, and Oliver Stone, while Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” and Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” are still in play.
“Moonlight” topped the »

The precursor season continued on yesterday, with both the New York Film Critics Circle and the Broadcast Film Critics Association getting in on the action. Nyfcc and Bfca (or the Critics Choice Awards) were both big on Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, that’s for sure. Continuing the trend we’ve been seeing, also making strong showings were Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight and Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea. Bfca also saw fit to highlight other titles like Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, and Hell or High Water, to name a few. Both groups mixed it up nicely, I must say. You’ll see it all below, but just know that this is likely how it’s going to go. At least, that’s my hunch. We shall see… Something to keep in mind before the reveal is that this is the critics group stage of the game. What they’re doing is establishing early momentum. »

The 2017 Critics Choice Awards nominations have come in and, as expected, the stunning La La Land is leading the way with no less than twelve nominations. Also doing well out of the nods are the equally stunning Moonlight, Manchester By The Sea, Lion and even David Mackenzie’s heist drama Hell Or High Water. Loving, Sully, Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge and Denzel Washington’s directorial effort Fences also get a look in in multiple categories.
Here are the 2017 Critic Choice Awards nominations in full.

Goodbye, 2016, hello, awards season! Man, what a year it’s been! A year with a lot of highs and a lot of lows. But like clockwork, just prior to the New Years bell ringing, members of various different groups sit down and vote on some of the standouts of the year in terms of film achievement. Just this past Monday, The Annie Awards released their big nominations for the year, and now, the Critics’ Choice Awards have done the same!

It bagged 12 nominations in total, including nods in some of the more prestigious categories – Best Picture, Ryan Gosling for Best Actor, Emma Stone for Best Actress, Chazelle for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. It’s an impressive haul for the Oscar-tipped drama, and one that will surely strengthen its status as the one candidate to beat as the weeks wear on.
Elsewhere, other films to score big in the list of nominations include acclaimed sci-fi Arrival and Fences, Denzel Washington’s adaptation that sees him in the role of a former baseball star struggling to find meaning in 1950s Pittsburgh.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (of which I'm a proud member) has revealed the nominations for the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards! And I'm loving that my favorite film of the year, "La La Land," led the pack with 12 nominations including Best Picture. "Moonlight" and "Arrival" followed with 10 noms each. The three films will compete with "Fences," "Hacksaw Ridge," "Hell or High Water," "Lion," "Loving," "Manchester by the Sea," and "Sully" for the Best Picture trophy. Winners will be announced live on A&E on Sunday, December 11th and I will be there!
Before I give you the nominations, how cool is it that August Wilson, who wrote the play "Fences" that Denzel Washington faithfully adapted, received a Best Adapted Screenplay nod? The best part? The great playwright has been gone for 11 years! Kudos to Washington for handling Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece with love!

That’s something to sing about for the perceived Oscar frontrunner, which now heads into December with a major boost.

With 12 nominations, Damien Chazelle’s musical “La La Land” led the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards movie nominations, including notices for best picture, best director, best actor (Ryan Gosling) and best actress (Emma Stone).
With 27 categories, the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. — which puts on the Critics’ Choice Awards — leaves itself plenty of opportunity to cover all bases. Genre categories for action, comedy and sci-fi/horror ensure peripheral recognition for films like “Jason Bourne,” “10 Cloverfield Lane” and “Central Intelligence.” Even the critically reviled DC films “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” landed notices, for actresses Gal Gadot and Margot Robbie, respectively. »

It was a good night for Moonlight at the Gotham Independent Film Awards last night, with the Barry Jenkins-directed drama fending off competition from Certain Women, Everybody Wants Some!!, Manchester by the Sea and Paterson to win Best Feature, while it was also honoured with Best Screenplay, the Audience Award, and a special jury award for ensemble performance.
If the last two years are any indication, Moonlight could make a big splash at the Oscars, with the past two Best Feature winners Birdman and Spotlight both going on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
Via EW, here’s a full list of winners from the 2016 Gotham Awards…

Last night, the Gotham Independent Film Awards held their ceremony in Manhattan. There, they crowned Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight in a big way, giving it victories in every single category it was nominated in. Could this be a sign of things to come? That remains to be seen, but this does begin to cement it as the independent contender to beat. Remember, for what it’s worth, Gotham gave their biggest prize last year to Spotlight. This time around, they did the same to Moonlight. You’ll see everything below, but if you wanted a big takeaway, it’s that Jenkins and company are here to stay this awards season. It’s still early, but bet against this one scoring major Oscar nomination attention at your own risk. The big winner out of Gotham yesterday was obviously Moonlight, which took Best Feature from competitors Certain Women, Everybody Wants Some, Manchester by the Sea, »

Gotham Awards 2016: Moonlight kicks off awards season very positively by eliminating the competition.
See the full list of the Gotham Awards 2016 winners below.
The superb Moonlight has kicked off its [sure-to-be] gold rush by taking one of the first big awards of the season at the Gotham Awards. The Barry Jenkins-directed film, which we saw back at the London Film Festival in October, took Best Feature, beating the likes of Paterson, Certain Women, Everybody Wants Some!!, and Manchester By The Sea.
The film also took the Gotham Independent Film Audience Award as well as Best Screenplay for Jenkins and the Special Jury Award For Ensemble Performance.
The film is a poetic coming-of-age tale told across three chapters about a young gay black kid growing up in a poor, drug-ridden neighbourhood of Miami.

The acclaimed drama, which last week got six Film Independent Spirit Award nominations, won the Gotham Award for best feature and its script, with a story by Tarell Alvin McCraney and a screenplay by Jenkins, won in the screenplay category.
The film also won the Gotham Audience Award and cast members Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Alex Hibbert, André Holland, Jharrel Jerome, Janelle Monáe, Jaden Piner, Trevante Rhodes and Ashton Sanders were presented with the previously announced Special Jury for Ensemble Performance.
The 2016 Gotham Awards kicked off at Cipriani Wall Street with host Keegan-Michael Key hitting a political note. Key opened the night by pretending that he had missed the election, armed with a pre-written a speech with Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States. Then he got the news about Donald Trump’s victory. “Thank God he’s not going to live here,” Key said to light laughter. (“Boo. Not funny. Sorry Keegan,” hissed a nominated actress in attendance.)
Anya Taylor-Joy was the surprise winner of the breakthrough actor award for her performance in the horror thriller “The Witch,” beating out favorites such as Lucas Hedges (“Manchester by the Sea”) and Sasha Lane (“American Honey”).
“The films nominated tonight show us so much about our lives and our world,” said Joana Vicente, the executive director of the Independent Filmmaking Projects, which hosts the event. She noted that Ifp »

The ceremony’s nomination list was studded with some of the year’s most beloved indies, including “Manchester By the Sea,” “Certain Women,” “Everybody Wants Some!!,” and “Paterson,” but the evening’s biggest winner was Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight,” which pulled in four awards, including Best Feature, Best Screenplay, the Special Jury Award For Ensemble Performance, and the Audience Award.
Other winners included Ezra Edelman’s “O.J.: Made in America” for Best Documentary, Casey Affleck for Best Actor for his turn in “Manchester By the Sea,” and Isabelle Huppert’s surprise win for Best Actress for her work in “Elle.”

Natalie Portman is First Lady Jackie Kennedy in Pablo Larraín's Jackie, screenplay by Noah Oppenheim. The film, shot by the great Stéphane Fontaine (Paul Verhoeven's Elle, starring Isabelle Huppert), features Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, Max Casella, John Carroll Lynch, Richard E Grant, Beth Grant and Caspar Phillipson as President John Kennedy.
Peter Sarsgaard, who portrays Robert Kennedy told me: "Bobby was tough". He also had some thoughts on Michael Almeryda's Marjorie Prime which stars Lois Smith, Tim Robbins, Jon Hamm, and Geena Davis, after his role as Stanley Milgram with Winona Ryder in Experimenter.
