Ah, the YouTube comments section. An anarchist's wet dream. The 2013 Wild West. Vaunted Land of the Mouth Breathers. And the only place fit to appropriately break down this year's Oscar nominees for acting.
Indeed, no nominee is safe from the wrath of the sub-100 Iq anonymous. Best Actors and Actresses, you're up first. Step right up and be mocked by the kings of the typo!

2. Daniel Day-Lewis, 'Lincoln'

You said it, Mr. Vargas. I've heard the same — he's kind of like Planfield (sp), but not really.

Shia Labeouf might not get an Oscar for taking LSD for his role in the upcoming film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, but he might get us to consider buying a ticket. “I’d never done acid before. I remember sending Evan tapes. I remember trying to conjure this and sending tapes. And Evan being like ‘That’s good, but that’s not but, that is,’” Labeouf told MTV about dropping acid to prepare for his character’s drug trip. “You reach out to friends and gauge where you’re at. I was sending tapes around and I’d get 50 percents from people and that just starts creeping me out. I was getting really nervous toward the end. Not cause I wanted to be on drugs — I’m not trying to mess with the set or anything like that. It’s really just fear that propels people.” Maybe it was fear, »

Films cheering American patriotism like "Lincoln" and "Argo" failed to impress at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards, who handed top honors to Michael Haneke's love story "Amour" at their ceremony Sunday night. (In fact, "Lincoln" wasn't even nominated for best picture.) But Haneke lost best director honors to Ang Lee for "Life of Pi"--making Lee look more and more like a potential surprise spoiler on Oscar night. Of course, the 120-plus critics, broadcasters, and writers who make up the London Film Critics' Circle likely have no overlap with Oscar voters, but it's still a nice boost for both "Amour," which also landed best actress honors for Emanuelle Riva, and "Life of Pi," which also recieved a special award for Technical Achievement of the Year for visual effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer. Daniel Day-Lewis was defeated twice, losing best actor to Joaquin Phoenix for "The Master," and best British »
"Amour" top the London Film Critics Circle Awards, winning Best Picture, Best Actress (Emmanuelle Riva), and Best Screenplay (Michael Haneke). Other acting awards go to Joaquin Phoenix (Best Actor) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Best Supporting Actor) for "The Master," as well as Anne Hathaway, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Les Miserables." Hollywood Reporter (Discuss "Amour" in our forums here.) But Phoenix is still uncomfortable with winning awards. He released a statement after being honored by the London critics: "'I struggle with the idea of winning awards for acting. Stating I'm Best Actor for something as subjective as film seems strange to me,' the Puerto Rico-born thesp confessed. 'To the uninitiated it implies I'm solely responsible for the creation and implementation of the character. I am not. I suppose that's why we thank our colleagues.'" Ace Showbiz -Addprediction:8 »
The 2012 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards 2012 was a curious year for movies. To look at a year in movies at a glance we often turn straight to blockbusters and in the case of 2012 it may seem as if it really wasn't that great a year. Then you begin to drill down deeper and even films that divided the audience created large amounts of discussions, and beyond blockbusters there were plenty of middle ground to small-budget indie features that were quite powerful. As far as discussion pieces go, here on RopeofSilicon a lot of time was dedicated to divisive films as The Grey, Prometheus and Looper. A conversation involving the ending of The Grey was quite popular, I posed theories on Looper's theme more than once, the Zero Dark Thirty torture controversy was annoying, but necessary and the movie that probably generated the most conversation was Prometheus, of which I wrote a massive six-page exploratory article. »

Joaquin Phoenix has praised Daniel Day-Lewis with a tongue-in-cheek comment about his performance in Lincoln. In response to being awarded the 'Best Actor' prize by the London Critics' Circle for his performance in The Master, Phoenix wrote a statement of acceptance which culminated with a mention of Day-Lewis. "I am very cognisant of the fact that for me this award is an encouragement to continue my lifelong passion of being an actor," Phoenix wrote in conclusion. "I will not squander this high regard. P.S. There's an up-and-coming actor named Daniel who's in a movie called Lincoln. You should check it out." Phoenix's gracious statement â“Â in which he made a point of praising his colleagues on set including key grips and an assistant director â“Â was in contrast to his remarks (more) »

Bigelow’s latest feature was given a limited release in the Us before Christmas, and has been on wide release in the States for the past two weeks. And now the wait is finally over on our shores, with its arrival in the UK landing this weekend.
We saw two great new TV spots earlier in the month, and Sony have released an intriguing new featurette going behind the scenes of production.

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s the most talented, most handsomest, often silliest movie news column on the planet. Movie news columns from other parts of the galaxy might be able to compete, but they are yet undiscovered, so they can suck it. He’s On a Horse – Sometimes memes are fun.

After winning the London Critics' Circle for Best Actor in The Master, Joaquin Phoenix gave many thanks to those around him, and even passed a little praise to Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in Lincoln with a statement. Phoenix is known to express his feelings. Not too long ago, he said that awards season was "total, utter bullshit" then recently said that he "wouldn't have the career that I have if it weren't for the Oscars". Sounds like a normal guy to me. You say one »

Joaquin Phoenix didn't exactly start off the awards season on the right foot, however, he's certainly beloved, his performance in "The Master" is titanic stuff, and he was still rewarded by his peers with an Oscar nomination for Paul Thomas Anderson's film. And while we'll leave it to the prognosticators to determine his chances against Daniel Day-Lewis in "Lincoln," Phoenix has already come out on top in one competition. Over the weekend, the London Critis' Circle Awards were handed out, and Phoenix beat Day-Lewis for Best Actor. And while he wasn't overseas to pick up the honor, the actor issued a pretty great little statement of thanks, while cheekily tipping his hat and giving respectful due to a certain "up-and-coming" actor. We'll just let you read the whole thing below and in case you missed it, here's the cover art for the forthcomg home video release of "The Master, »

As you probably remember, Joaquin Phoenix has feelings about awards season.
"I think it's bulls--t," Phoenix said to Elvis Mitchell during an interview last year. "I think it's total, utter bulls--t, and I don't want to be a part of it. I don't believe in it. It's a carrot, but it's the worst-tasting carrot I've ever tasted in my whole life. I don't want this carrot. It's totally subjective. Pitting people against each other ... It's the stupidest thing in the whole world."
Phoenix later walked back some of those comments -- "I wouldn't have the career that I have if it weren't for the Oscars. I haven't been in a lot of movies that have made a lot of money ... and getting nominated [for 'Gladiator' and 'Walk The Line'] has probably helped my career tremendously," Phoenix said to the Sydney Morning Herald -- a gesture which may helped secure his »

Amy Adams went out for a shopping trip with her daughter, Aviana, in La on Saturday. Amy was seen walking with a friend while taking Aviana to a children's shoe store to buy her little one some new footwear. She might be shoe shopping for herself soon enough as she is slated to attend the Oscars on Feb. 24, when she's up for best supporting actress against Anne Hathaway, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, and Jacki Weaver. Amy isn't nominated for any honors for the upcoming SAG Awards, but she might attend the event to show support for her The Master costar Philip Seymour Hoffman, who is nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a supporting role.

The Palme D'Or winner, which is nominated for five Academy awards, also won screenplay of the year for Haneke's French-language script about an elderly couple dealing with the aftermath of a debilitating stroke. Emmanuelle Riva was named actress of the year for her lead portrayal.
Another big winner at the Mayfair Hotel in London was Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, which has had a relatively disappointing awards season so far. The period drama took best actor for Joaquin Phoenix and best supporting actor for Philip Seymour Hoffman, both of whom are also nominated for Oscars. Anne Hathaway »

Sundance is in full swing, and recently we attended a screening of Jim Mickle's remake of We Are What We Are (original review here). Read on for a transcript from the festivities, and look for a review of the remake coming soon!
We Are What We Are, picked up by eOne Entertainment this year in Berlin, is directed by Stake Land's Jim Mickle and is based on the 2010 Mexican film and Cannes Film Festival entry Somo Lo Que Hay. Andrew D. Corkin and Nicholas Shumaker produce.
Mickle moved Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals from its original setting of Mexico City to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York state.
Q: What the fuck was that all about? »
On a snowy night in the city, in a ceremony held at the Mayfair Hotel, the London Critics' Circle expressed their admiration for Michael Haneke's "Amour" by awarding it three prizes: Film of the Year, Actress of the Year for Emmanuelle Riva and Screenwriter of the Year for Haneke. The victories add a nice head of steam to "Amour"'s awards-season campaign, with Riva in particular getting a boost in the run-up to the BAFTAs and Oscars. "The Master", which had been neck and neck with "Amour" with seven nominations, claimed wins for Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman respectively as Actor of the Year and Supporting Actor of the Year. Neither was on hand to receive their prizes in person, although Phoenix did send an eccentric thank you that was read out by Kate Muir, the film critic for the London Times (it's transcribed in full below, along »

With the focus this weekend on Park City with the Sundance Film Festival now in full swing, it might be easy to forget we're still in the midst of the awards season. And even though we're nearing the finishing line, with the Golden Globes already handed out, and a few more major guild awards and the Indie Spirits to come before the Oscars are awarded, critics circles are still getting their two cents in. And the latest to hand down their verdict on the year in film of 2012 are from the U.K., with the London Critics' Circle Awards honoring their winners today. And a big favorite of the season made a considerable impression. "Amour" walked away with Film Of Year, Best Actress for Emmanuelle Riva and Best Screenwriter for Michael Haneke, though Ang Lee scooped Best Director for "Life Of Pi." Jacques Audiard's "Rust And Bone" took Foreign Language Film, »
