If we were ever going to get so excited that we accidentally crushed a puppy to death with our bare hands, today would be the day. It was announced that Leighton Meester will be starring alongside James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in this spring's revival of Of Mice And Men, because sometimes God is merciful and kind. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Gossip Girl actress will star as Curley's wife, which makes perfect sense. We always want to touch her hair too. »

Why ya'll acting suspicious? It makes perfect sense that James Franco would start stacking statuettes for his turn as Alien in Spring Breakers. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association is just the first organization to do him the honor, giving a Franco a best supporting actor win on Sunday. Man, the smirk on that guy's face when he's onstage at the Oscars again… »

Looks like awards voters are considering James Franco’s shit after all. And now that the Los Angeles Film Critics Association has awarded Franco with a best-supporting-actor win Sunday for his memorable turn as the rapper Alien in “Spring Breakers,” expect A24 Films to ratchet up its fledgling campaign, too. When A24 launched its “for your consideration” effort back in September, most saw it as nothing more than a clever marketing moment for a film that came out in March and had been released on DVD/Blu-ray a few weeks prior. Even the ad’s tagline was tellingly tongue-in-cheek: “Consider this shit, »

Sunday was a busy day for film critics on both coasts. Boston, New York, and Los Angeles Film Critics announced their annual awards, adding fuel to the Oscar-prediction fire with a strong showing for 12 Years a Slave in the Best Picture arena.

Cate Blanchett for "Blue Jasmine" and Adele Exarchopoulos also tied for Best Actress while James Franco ("Spring Breakers") and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club") shared the Best Supporting Actor award.

Los Angeles Film Critics Awards winners 2013 (photo: Sandra Bullock in ‘Gravity’) The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Lafca), which has been around since the early ’70s, announced earlier today, December 8, 2013, their list of 2013 winners and runners-up. Although there were a handful of offbeat choices, what’s most surprising is how mainstream were most of the Los Angeles Film Critics’ picks this year — Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity was the top film, with a total of four wins — and that there were no less than three ties, including one for Best Picture: Gravity and Spike Jonze’s Her. See below. (See also: Full list of Boston Society of Film Critics 2013 winners.) Best Picture (tie): Gravity and Her.

The critics group awards are off and running. Last week we saw the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Board of Review, and the Boston Online Critics announce their annual awards, and today we have three more groups to add to the pile. 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture in the Boston and New York Online groups, but the Los Angeles voting resulted in a tie for Best Picture between Gravity and Her. Alfonso Cuaron took Best Director in the Los Angeles and New York Film Critics Online awards, while Boston went for 12 Years a Slave’s Steve McQueen. While many votes seemed to be in line with early predictions, James Franco shared the Best Supporting Actor moniker in the Los Angeles group for his work in Spring Breakers. If there’s one takeaway from the critics group awards we’ve seen thus far, it’s that Spike Jonze »

Doing little to clarify an awards season with multiple strong contenders, the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. named Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” the top films of 2013, in a tie victory. Both films are Warner Bros. releases.
It was not the first tie for best picture in the group’s history: In 1975, Lafca’s first year of voting, there was a split between “Dog Day Afternoon” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” while in 1976, “Network” and “Rocky” shared the honors.
Nor was it the only surprise twofer the L.A. critics announced in a series of extremely close races that spread the love around. Cate Blanchett (Sony Classics’ “Blue Jasmine”) and Adele Exarchopoulos (IFC’s “Blue Is the Warmest Color”) shared the award for actress, while James Franco (A24′s “Spring Breakers”) and Jared Leto (Focus Features’ “Dallas Buyers Club”) shared the laurels for supporting actor. »
