a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Danish Girl DuoThe Broadcast Film Critics announced their nominations this morning. My fave “The Danish Girl” got five. Eddie Redmayne for Best Actor, Alicia Vikander for Best Supporting Actress, Best Production, Best Costume Design, and Best Hair and Make-up. I think it will repeat at the Oscars, though Alicia Vikander may be in the Best Lead Actress category.

The most nominations went to “Mad Max:Fury Road” but that’s only because there are many separate Action Awards categories.

I am not a member of this group so I feel safe to point out that not ONE actor or actress of color was nominated in the Best Lead or Best Supporting categories.

Most welcome surprise ~ Mark Ruffalo FINALLY appeared in Best Supporting Actor for “Spotlight”

Most unwelcome surprise that Paul Dano did.

Here’s the complete list of their film nominations. They are considered the most predictive in terms of Oscar, but they hedge their bets a little by having six slots in the acting categories not five.

Also note that Bryan Cranston and Dame Helen Mirren continue their march to the Dolby pavillion with nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress for “Trumbo”.
