The Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Awards are tonight (they air starting at 5PM PST on VH1), so I thought it might be fun to get your thoughts on who you think will win tonight. Black Swan leads the nominees with 12 nominations, followed by The King’s Speech and True Grit with 11 each. After the cut I’ve got polls set up for some of the major categories. You can see all the categories and nominations here. Also, while you’re at it, if you could take a second to vote for Cinema Fanatic at the 2011 Total Movie Blog Awards, I’d be ever so grateful.
A whole series of character posters have been released for the Coen Bros.’ remake of True Grit and a really cute one-sheet for James L. Brooks’ dramedy How Do You Know.
Each of these posters have a different style and each are for a movie that are completely different kind of movies. I can’t wait to see The Tourist because I love Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. The trailer for the Coen Brothers’ remake of True Grit has sold me on its merits. I generally don’t like Tyler Perry’s films, but this one looks like it could be so much better than his previous films. Regardless, this new poster for For Colored Girls is breathtaking.
I recently saw the original film, for which John Wayne won his only acting Oscar, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m usually pretty wary of Hollywood remakes, but I almost universally love Coen brothers films, so I’m hopeful for this. Also, I have lots of love for Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin and Roger Deakins’ cinematography looks to be as lush as ever.
You can watch the trailer here on iTunes. The film is due in theaters on Decemeber 25th.
