WAFCA2013

Hey Everyone, I’ve been sucked into the black-hole known as end of the year movie award madness – nearly 60 movies in four weeks. The Washington, DC Film Critics Association (WAFCA) announced this year’s crop of winners. For a change I can’t complain about our selections, every category featured at least one of my nominations and most of the eventual winners were some of my nomination picks (even if I may not have voted for them in the final balloting).

Twelve Years A Slave is one of the toughest, most uncomfortable, but important films to come out in years and deserves to be recognized as one of the year’s best. Other highlights for me include Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) getting Best Supporting Actor (although I ultimately voted for James Franco) and seeing The Great Gatsby snagging Best Art Direction. My only minor gripe is Emma Watson’s performance in The Bling Ring didn’t make it onto the ballot.

Once again it’s time to reward the best of the best on TV – and once again, some of the best have not even been acknowledged with a nomination; and once again, some of the best, who would’ve been right not to expect a nomination, were acknowledged. In short, it’s the usual assortment of woulda, coulda, shoulda – mixed with the occasional WOW! They really nailed that one!

After the jump, I run down how I would pick the winner if I had the deciding vote.

Oscars 2013 Winners

Overall, I would say I’m pleased by this year’s winners – except Jennifer Lawrence. Show was horrible. Some pleasant surprises. Life of Pi was a strong movie (until the ending ruins it), so can’t say I’m really upset by Lee winning – just shocked. Liked seeing Django Unchained get some love. I think most of my selections were mostly right. Wish B.P. was a surprise, but two months ago it was clear it was going to be Argo and I’m ok with that. Just surprised at how fast and hard Zero Dark Thirty fell. I would swear I was one of the few critics who didn’t like that movie.
