well, at the ggs and the oscars, they will be in different categories. I am hoping Once wins Best Song.

And, look at Amy Ryan go! I think it's a safe bet she'll get an Oscar nom, possibly winning.

I agree, nice list.

For all you Sweeney-fans out there, fear not! These are nice recognitions for good films. And... Keep in mind that the last time the L.A. Film Critics pick for Best Picture paralleled the Oscar was in 2003, and before that one... 1993 (Schindler's List).

And the last time the NY Film Critic's picked an Oscar-winner was in 1993 (Schindler's List). Not one, since then.

Boston's pick was right last year ("The Departed") and before that... 1993's Schindler's List again.

Not exactly a good barometer at all. As much as we love the film critics awards... predictors, they ain't.

EDIT: And the NY Film Critics announce their picks tomorrow!

I was hoping for some more love for ATONEMENT. Not that NO COUNTRY isn't flawless- it is - but ATONEMENT struck an emotional chord with me that I have yet to shake off.

My most emotional attachment to anything this year, though, has been Marion Cotillard's performance in LA VIE EN ROSE. Just the most brilliant thing in ages. As good and wonderful as Julie Christie, Amy Adams, Angelina Jolie, and Keira Knightley were - I believe that Cotillard should win every single best actress award. IF she looses the Oscar, I'm going to be devastated.

I'm sorry that ZODIAC has been so totally stiffed. I'd like to have seen Robert Downey Jr. pick up a Supporting Actor award or two.

So happy for Marion Cotillard. She's such a phenomenal actress, with La Vie En Rose, she gives one of the most powerful and nuanced performance I have seen in a very, very long time.

It's disappointing though, that she will most likely be barely recognized come award time. Foreign actors/actresses don't usually get the recognition they deserve, which is very sad.

Marion Cotillard is indeed amazing but I wish the actress/actor that won the Best Acting awards won for creating a role from scratch and not playing someone who lived in real life. I believe it was Will Smith who said recently that if you play someone who existed in real life, you're most likely to get an Oscar. After Mirren won every single award for playing the Queen, I wish this year more recognition were given to actresses who created new roles. How about Ellen Page, Helena Bonham Carter, Keira Nightley, et al?

Well, Julie Christie has won two of the four Best Actress awards listed in this thread so far.

And didnít Will Smith lose the Oscar for his performance as Muhammad Ali to Denzel Washington in Training Day?

Well, obviously its an exaggeration, but 5 out of the last 6 Best Actor or Actress Oscars HAVE gone to actors playing real-life people: Ray Charles, June Carter Cash, Truman Capote, Queen Elizabeth II and Idi Amin.

I for one am DELIGHTED for Julie Christie. I was so moved by her performance and I hope she goes on to win the Oscar, as well. She is phenomenal!

Wait... How can "There Will Be Blood" be #11 on the NY Film Critic's list, yet it won their Best Picture?

Is that list in the right order?

EDIT: Never mind, it's in alpha-order. Probably shouldn't have numbers next to the titles. It threw me off.

I agree with ray, enough with the Oscars for imperosnations.
Those perfs are great, but they're half for walking/talking/imitating a certain quirk of someone.
