UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 29th November to Sunday 1st December 2013....
As expected, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire made it two weeks in a row at the top of the UK box office, with the Jennifer Lawrence-headlined sequel adding another £5.5 million in its second weekend to give the film an impressive £21.7 million after just 11 days.
That puts it just behind the entire haul of The Hunger Games (£23.8 million), as well as the £22.5 million take of Gravity, which held on to second place with a fourth weekend take of £1.74 million.
Turning to the new arrivals and the CG-animated Free Birds led the pack with £1,044,074 to take third, followed by Disney's Saving Mr. Banks in fourth with £795,615 and the remake of Carrie in fifth with £662,625.
Number one this time last year: Skyfall
1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - £5,525,476 weekend; £21,711,143 total (2 weeks)
2. Gravity - £1,741,279 weekend »

The 2014 Oscar season is shaping up to be one of the most interesting and competitive awards races in some time. With the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review awarding their top prizes to American Hustle and Her respectively, two films that, while well-liked with passionate pockets of support here and there, appeared to be slowly slipping through Oscar’s grasp when it came to the big prize, the field of possible contenders has been blown open with a myriad of possible Best Picture contenders still in play.
American Hustle, Blue Jasmine, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Fruitvale Station, Gravity, Her, Inside Llweyn Davis, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Nebraska, Philomena, Saving Mr. Banks, 12 Years a Slave, and The Wolf of Wall Street are all, in this humble pundit’s opinion, legitimate contenders for a slot in this year’s Best Picture lineup. That’s 14 films vying »

Away from the controversy over whether the International Press Society members actually saw Wolf Of Wall Street before voting (hello tick box theory…), this year’s Satellite Award noms read as little more than the Ips’ Oscar predictions – give or take an extra three or four names in each category for comfort. Naturally resulting in a very uninteresting list, 12 Years A Slave leads the pack with ten nominations, followed narrowly by Gravity and American Hustle’s eight.
With strong turnouts in the acting categories, it’s surprising to see Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska not contending for the big prize, and the Ips will surely find themselves in the minority for omitting Will Forte for his turn in the latter, even if it is rewarded for Best Ensemble. Though not appearing in the acting, directing or Best Picture categories, Fruitvale Station is still very much a focal point, »

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.
Spike Jonze.s Her has become the latest film you haven.t yet seen to be named the Best Picture of 2013. The day after the New York Film Critics Circle selected David O. Russell.s American Hustle as the year.s best film, the National Board of Review bestowed its annual award on Her, a sweetly strange and hauntingly romantic sci-fi drama about a lonely man (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his intuitive operating system (voiced seductively by Scarlett Johansson). Jonze also won Best Director in the Nbr.s tally, while top acting awards went to Bruce Dern (for Nebraska) and Emma Thompson (for Saving Mr. Banks). Annie Schulhof, Nbr President, said of the selection: Spike Jonze is one of the most talented and visionary filmmakers working today. In Her, he explores the age-old themes of love and human connection in a completely fresh and innovative way. It »
Hooray! The National Board of Review, one of the many organizations voting on awards for movies, has announced their 2013 awards today. The top film - Spike Jonze's Her, which won Best Film of 2013 and Best Director for Jonze, though it didn't win anything else along the way. Instead, a few other acting wins went to Nebraska, Fruitvale Station and Saving Mr. Banks, with Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street and the Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis sneaking in via the screenplay categories. I'm mostly happy that Her is starting to win awards like Best Film, hopefully this is just the start of what's to come. View the full Nbr list below. The National Board of Review’s awards will be handed out January 7th in New York City at a gala hosted by Lara Spencer. The Nbr Awards include a number of categories and follow-up lists of best films (including »

What a difference a day makes. Following the New York Film Critics Circle's announcements yesterday, the National Board of Review took a decidedly indie spin in announcing its end-of-the-year accolades. Spike Jonze's Her took home best picture and director wins while Fruitvale Station score a trio of wins in acting and directing categories. In fact, the only films to mirror their Nyfcc wins yesterday were The Wind Rises (best animated feature) and Stories We Tell (best documentary). Here's the full list of winners: 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...

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. »

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.

Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska” took home acting trophies for lead Bruce Dern and supporting thesp Will Forte, while actress kudos were handed to Emma Thompson for her lead perf in “Saving Mr. Banks” and, in the supporting category, to Octavia Spencer for “Fruitvale Station,” which also snagged a breakthrough performance award for Michael B. Jordan and the directorial debut laurel for helmer Ryan Coogler. “Prisoners” took an ensemble acting trophy for a cast that included Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo and Paul Dano.
Hayao Miyazaki’s “The Wind Rises” won for animated feature — the film’s second toon trophy after winning the same kudo from the New York Film Critics Circle Monday — and Sarah Polley’s “Stories We Tell” took the documentary title, »

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 »

A year or so ago, the very idea of Saving Mr. Banks was one that inspired some jokes and no small amount of ridicule. "It's Disney saluting Disney" was a popular phrase, and I even once suggested it was potentially going to be the equivalent of watching Mickey Mouse masturbate. Well, now having seen John Lee Hancock's film, I can say that it doesn't deserve any ridicule, since it's a solidly good movie. That being said, it's got both the feel good quality and the tear jerker quality going in its favor, so I have no doubt that this is going to be a big favorite for the Academy. The question is, can it sneak up and win Best Picture? It's not the frontrunner, but it could very well prove to be a big spoiler when the awards are handed out. Perhaps more than any other contender for Best Picture this year, »
