New York Film Critics Circle Picks the Best of 2013

So it starts.

The New York Film Critics Circle has announced its 2013 award winners. The only film with more than one award is David O. Russell's “American Hustle,” the best picture winner, which also picked up best screenplay and best supporting actress nods:

  • Best Picture: American Hustle
  • Best Director:Steve McQueen 12 Years a Slave
  • Best Screenplay: American Hustle
  • Best Actress: Cate Blanchett Blue Jasmine
  • Best Actor: Robert Redford All Is Lost
  • Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence American Hustle
  • Best Supporting Actor:Jared Leto Dallas Buyers Club
  • Best Cinematography: Bruno Delbonnel Inside Llewyn Davis
  • Best Documentary: Stories We Tell
  • Best First Film:Ryan Coogler Fruitvale Station
  • Best Animated Film: The Wind Rises
  • Best Foreign Language Film: Blue is the Warmest Color
  • Special Award:Frederick Wiseman

Not a bad list, from what I've seen. I'll see “American Hustle” next week. I'm still chomping at the bit for “Llewyn Davis.” Review for “Blue is the Warmest Color” up soon.

NYFCC doesn't have a bad history. Its recent best picture winners: “Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Artist,” “The Social Network,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Milk,” “No Country for Old Men” and “United 93.”

American Hustle

“American Hustle” cast. L-R: Lois Lane, Rocket Raccoon, Hawkeye, Batman, and Mystique.

Jennifer Lawrence was put on this earth to make all the other actresses try harder. Wait till you see her performance here. Lucille Ball meets Lizzie Borden.

I'm in love with Jennifer Lawrence but wish she'd stop making those damned “Hunger Games” movies, which I have no desire to see whatsoever.

As for the NYFCC, their recent list looks good, except for that god-awful, over-rated Coen Brothers disaster of a pointlessly violent, vapid “No Country For Old Men,” which I turned off after about 10 minutes, a choice I will never regret no matter what you or the NYFCC has to say about it.

While I'm ranting away, just let me say that I thoroughly expect to hate “Blue Is The Warmest Color” but love “American Hustle.”

Ben: Don't worry; only two more HUNGER GAMES movies. One of which makes more money than all of her other movies combined.

Meanwhile, too bad you turned off NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN after 10 minutes. You missed.

Colin: Nice line, but now I expect bloodshed.
