a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Boyhood 1JK SimmonsAs I type this, the New York Film Critics Circle are announcing their winners. They are the first major awards body to do this. Tomorrow, it’s the National Board of Review.

They’re moving pretty fast. That means they’re in agreement. They vote in rounds. So I think that means that the following five awards were pretty much voted unanimously.

They are: “Lego Movie” Best Animated Film

Best Foreign Film: “Ida”

Best Documentary/Non-fiction film: “Citizen Four”

Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons “Whiplash”

Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette “Boyhood”

We may be in for a very boring Awards season in those two categories I feel. Since Simmons and Arquette may now go on to win EVERYTHING on the LONNNNG road to the Oscars in February.

More soon as the other winners are announced.
