Los Angeles Film Critics Awards winners 2013 to be posted here The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Lafca) will announce its list of winners and runners-up on Sunday, December 8, 2013, beginning at 10 a.m. Pt. We’ll be posting their choices here, as they’re announced. Now, who and/or what is going to win? Well, expect some overlapping with the choices of both the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review. That’s only normal. Having said that, the good thing is that in several key categories the Los Angeles critics have gone their own way in the last few years, making the sort of daring and/or international choices that the now chiefly mainstream, Hollywood star-struck New York critics used to make three or four decades ago. Lafca examples include Best Actress winners Yolande Moreau for Séraphine (2009), Kim Hye-ja for Mother (2010), and Emmanuelle Riva for Amour »

When Allison Janney was promoting The Way, Way Back at Sundance, she told Vulture that she was hoping to do a TV show. Eleven months later, she's starring on both a network sitcom and a cable drama. On Showtime's fifties-set Masters of Sex, Janney plays Margaret Scully, an elegant provost's wife whose world breaks open when she realizes that her sexless marriage is not the norm. Then, on the CBS comedy Mom, she's Bonnie, a promiscuous, free-spirited alcoholic who's trying to clean up her act and reconnect with her grown daughter (Anna Faris). The Showtime role has all the nude scenes and onscreen orgasms, but it's the free-wheeling grandma on Mom who may actually be the sexiest woman Janney has ever played. Vulture caught up with the actress to talk about physical comedy, her Mom reunion with Octavia Spencer, her most heartbreaking Masters scenes, and the ghost of C.J. »

With the lead actors taken care of (for now) we move to Best Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress, two races that are likely to be the most competitive this season as neither can claim they are locked in. While Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) remains my #1 in the Supporting Actor category any number of contenders could move into that slot should someone enjoy a good run in the precursors or end up snubbed at the upcoming SAG or Golden Globe nominations. In the Supporting Actress category for the longest time it was a race between Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) and Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels' The Butler), but things have changed a bit over recent weeks and it's becoming increasingly difficult to call anyone a frontrunner in this category. I still have my Screenplay predictions to update today and they are coming shortly, but if you missed my Best Picture »

The long-established educational organisation also gave Jonze its best director award, for the film starring Joaquin Phoenix as an office worker who falls in love with his computer system (voiced by Scarlett Johannson). Jonze also wrote the script, but the NPR's best original screenplay award went to the Coen brothers for Inside Llewyn Davis. The Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street took the award for best adapted screenplay.

To see how our predictions fared by category, click here. The tastes of the Nbr proved much harder to pin down than the New York Film Critics Circle, which announced their winners on December 3. No one predicted that "Her" would win Best Picture and Best Director. Only four predicted Emma Thompson's Best Actress win for "Saving Mr. Banks." and only one anticipated Octavia Spencer's Best Supporting Actress victory for "Fruitvale Station." The Nbr's choices were so unpredictable that our best users -- Cinemateo21 and dottardi -- correctly pick »
The awards season just got more unpredictable. The last three award-giving bodies have chosen different movies for their top honors. The Gotham Awards picked the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis" as their top choice while the New York Film Critics Circle awarded David O. Russell's "American Hustle" with the Best Picture of the Year nod.
Now comes the National Board of Review. They chose the equally fantastic movie "Her' from Spike Jonze as the Best Film of the year. Even in acting categories, the three award-giving organizations vary. For Best Actor, Gotham chose Matthew McConaughey for "Dallas Buyers Club," while New York Film Critics crowned Robert Redford for "All is Lost." The Nbr chose Bruce Dern from "Nebraska" as the actor to beat.
Following yesterday's New York Film Critics Circle Awards announcement, today the National Board of Review is offering their picks. Last year, like with the Nyfcc, Zero Dark Thirty won the top prize. This year, to prove they have diverse tastes, Her was the bigger winner, winning both best film and best director for Spike Jonze. Other big winners include Nebraska, which was in the Nbr's top ten films and won for best actor (Bruce Dern) and best supporting actor (Will Forte). See the full list of winners below and then just make sure to congratulate Emma Thompson whenever you see her.Best Film: Her Best Director: Spike Jonze, Her Best Actor: Bruce Dern, Nebraska Best Actress: Emma Thompson, Saving Mr. Banks Best Supporting Actor: Will Forte, Nebraska Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, Fruitvale Station Best Original Screenplay: Joel and Ethan Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis Best Adapted Screenplay: Terence Winter, The Wolf of Wall Street »

The critics awards are off and running after the New York Film Critics Circle announced its picks for the best of the year yesterday, and today the National Board of Review has named Her the best picture of 2013. Spike Jonze was also named Best Director for the film, while the acting honors went to Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Will Forte (Nebraska), and Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station). Always an eclectic list, the Nbr’s Top 10 includes The Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity, Lone Survivor, and Prisoners. Wholly absent from the Top 10 is the Nyfcc’s pick for Best Film, American Hustle. The Nbr winner for Best Picture has failed to match up with Oscar since 2008’s Slumdog Millionaire, as last year’s award went to Zero Dark Thirty, but for the past 13 years every Nbr winner has landed a Best Picture nomination, so this bodes well for Her's Oscar prospects. »

Spike Jonze's tech-romance "Her" leads the top ten list of the National Board of Review, whose thunder was stolen this year by the New York Film Critics Circle vote Tuesday. Jonze also won best director. While the Nyfcc gave "All is Lost" star Robert Redford its Best Actor prize, the Nbr went with another 77-year-old, Bruce Dern, star of Alexander Payne's "Nebraska," as well as his co-star Will Forte in supporting. In an indication that awards will be all over the map this year, Nbr went with Emma Thompson for her role as P.J. Travers in "Saving Mr. Banks." In more wins for "Fruitvale Station," Octavia Spencer landed best supporting actress (the Independent Spirits nominated Melonie Diaz), the breakthrough performance award went to Michael B. Jordan and first-time director to Ryan Coogler; both won those awards at the Gothams Monday, and Coogler also won the first-time director trophy from the Nyfcc. »

Fruitvale Station continued as an independent favourite with supporting actress honours for Octavia Spencer and best directorial debut and breakthrough actor for Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jodran, respectively. Will Forte was named best supporting actor for Nebraska.
Prisoners won the best ensemble prize while the Coen brothers maintained their early awards momentum with original screenplay honours for Inside Llewyn Davis. Terence Winter prevailed in the adapted category for The Wolf Of Wall Street.

Spike Jonze’s Her, which tells the story of a man (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with the voice of his computer’s operating system, was named Best Film of 2013 by the National Board of Review. More to come…

Best Film: Her
- Jeff Labrecque
I am loving the just announced awards from the National Board of Review for 2013, naming Spike Jonze's Her the best film as this year's award race is clearly not shaping up to be as obvious as many predicted it would be. How soc Well, supposed frontrunners 12 Years a Slave and Gravity were shut out of the major awards until both were named in the subsequent list of top ten films of the year (naturally) and Gravity was given the award for Creative Innovation in Filmmaking (seems appropriate). I will say, however, as much as I love Her, giving Jonze the award for Best Director is a bit surprising while the Coen brothers won Best Original Screenplay. I would have been less surprised had those two been flipped, though I definitely love the attention shown Inside Llewyn Davis and a script certainly worthy of attention. Something of a surprise, though »

It may only be November, but the starter pistol has already fired and the Oscars race is well and truly under way. We've already seen a host of films - from Gravity to Captain Phillips - released in cinemas, but many more are on their way looking to leave their impression on Academy Awards voters.
Digital Spy looks at 15 films competing for golden statues below...
Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks's bracing hijacking drama Captain Phillips left audiences on the edge of their seats and threw its leading man right into the mix for the Best Actor race. Greengrass bagged a directing nomination back in 2007 for United 93, so expect him to be in the race.
12 Years a Slave
Although Hollywood continued to experience a major baby boom in 2013, there is one actress who says she is "fine" without having kids of her own. "I should be married and have 19 kids," Octavia Spencer told fellow stars Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Emma Thompson, Amy Adams, and Lupita Nyong'o in a roundtable discussion posted Nov. 25 for the Actresses Issue of The Hollywood Reporter. "And now I'm thinking my eggs are dying on the shelf. They're going to go past their expiration date," said the Fruitvale [...] »
