New York Film Critics Awards

The New York Film Critics Awards went down last night and the results were not overly shocking,

Unsurprisingly, Best Picture went to The Artist. The film to beat also picked up Best Director for Michel Hazanavicus. Best Actor was awarded to that struggling, ugly actor Brad Pitt for his work in Moneyball. The baseball film also received the award for Best Screenplay for the wordy dream team of Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian.

Meryl Streep picked up Best Actress for her amazing work in The Iron Lady. Critics are saying that this performance will finally break her 13 nomination losing streak at the Oscars, and earn the venerable actress her fourth of her career. Oh, Meryl. You’re all the woman I want to be.

Other winners include Albert Brooks for Drive, Best Supporting Actress for Jessica Chastain in The Help, and Best Cinematographer for Emmanuel Lubezki for the best movie ever, The Tree of Life.

What do you think of the results? Am I the only one that cares? Probably. Share your thoughts with a comment or two.
