Photo: Universal Pictures Before I stepped away for a Christmas break I had to do a little cleaning up when it came to my Oscar predictions as several categories needed some maintenance. As a result I've added a new contender to Best Picture, two new contenders to Best Supporting Actress, a new contender to Best Cinematography and I also trimmed the fat here and there as the true contenders for each category are becoming clearer and clearer. Now this update includes changes to four categories so I will try and make each one rather quick as you can always click over to my official Oscar predictions section and get further detail and rankings. That said, let's dig in. Best Picture Daniel Radcliffe and Ralph Fiennes in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Chicago – Nominations have just been released this morning for this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards, and some common trends in award ceremonies we have already seen continue in this set of nominees. With ten different Best Picture nominees and thirty different actors and actresses nominated, it is no surprise that there are some similarities.

The nominees for Best Picture include several films that have already been winners at other awards, like “The Artist,” “The Descendants,” “Hugo,” and “The Tree of Life,” but also include nominees “Drive,” “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “The Help,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball,” and “War Horse.”

Along with the normal categories (acting, directing, writing), the Critics’ Choice Awards is one of the first to have a full list of categories, like art direction, makeup, costume, visual effects, score, and song.

2012 Critics Choice Award Nominations: 'Hugo' and 'The Artist' Lead with 11 Nominations Each

13 December 2011 7:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (an organization I belong to) announced the nominees for the 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards this morning and Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist each received a massive 11 nominations with both films receiving nominations for Best Picture, Actor, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography, Art Direction, Editing, Costume Design and Score. Looking over the list I can't say there are many surprises though I am sure there are many that will be happy to see Andy Serkis with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it's interesting to see neither Glenn Close or Janet McTeer were nominated for Albert Nobbs.
