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 »
