A Complete Guide To 2010-11 Awards Season

Award season is over, with over two months worth of announcements from critic groups, guilds, boards, academies, and organizations behind us. To help everyone keep up, indieWIRE has this comprehensive summary of all the announced awards since the season’s early winter beginnings.

Below are links to all of the announcements, as well as a compilation of the winners in various categories, listed in order of how many kudos each have received. Currently, David Fincher’s “The Social Network” has dominated best picture (but not at Oscar), best director and best screenplay kudos, while Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”), Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”), Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) and Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) are the leaders in each respective acting category, all of them taking Oscars as well. “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” “Exit Through the Gift Shop” and “Toy Story 3” are leading in the foreign language, documentary and animated feature categories, respectively.

Shoot the Critic

Thanks for the thorough summary!
“The Social Network” has little competition when it comes to the critics’ favorite. It’s strange, then, how “The King’s Speech” is piling up the Guild awards and seems to be the bet to win the Oscar.
I am surprised at how many awards James Franco has received, coming in second behind the obvious Colin Firth. Jesse Eisenberg, a very deserving actor in my opinion (especially for being a huge reason for the success of “The Social Network”), came in third, just one award behind Franco.
It’s disappointing how every awards show has not strayed far from Natalie Portman as their pick for best lead actress. There were other, more complex and intricate performances this year. Not that Ms. Portman didn’t do a good job, but there is better acting out there. It’d be nice if these awards recognized it more.
I posted my own list of predictions and favorites on my film and television web site “Shoot the Critic.” Check it out if you’re interested.

Ryan Gosling needs to win something. I must see Blue Valentine. I have yet to see Black Swan or Social Network and I don’t plan to.


The Social Network and Black Swan were my absolute favorite films this year. Natalie Portman was a revelation, and The Social Network was brilliant!

I hope Mark Wahlberg is acknowledged with a best actor nomination at the Oscars. He is such a MAN.

The balanced mix of commercial and indy films and the number of winners and nominations tell us that film art is having a banner year in the United States.


I guess I’m in the minority here, but I just don’t care that much about all these awards! It feels like indieWIRE becomes exclusively dedicated to awards coverage for practically half the year. I care about the movies. Isn’t there way to balance the content a little more for those of us who don’t obsessively scrutinize every arbitrary nomination/award/marketing campaign?

In regard to recognition in the doc category, I’m wondering if Soderbergh’s superb portrait of Spalding Gray, AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE, just quietly snuck in to the IFC Center this week without as yet being seen much (if at all) in other parts of the country. To eloquently and movingly tell Gray’s story without any talking heads — other than Gray’s himself — is a rare and special achievement in filmmaking. It is one of the best edited films of the year, and I’m kind of amazed that, in Tony Scott’s NYTimes review, he calls it “a “tour de force of smart and sensitive editing” without mentioning editor Susan Littenberg by name.

On a somewhat different note: with the BFCA nom to UNSTOPPABLE for Best Action Film, even though ghetto-ized as a genre film, one wonders if it has a chance for any Academy recognition in the editing and sound categories. I consider it (IMHO) one of the major achievements of the year in that department — one of the most intense experiences this year, with virtually zero percent of body fat. Not since THE FUGITIVE . . .


Indeed it is interesting that the two outstanding teen actresses this year Chloe Grace Moretz for “Kick Ass” and Hailee Steinfeld for “True Grit” are not even nominated.
We have Jennifer Lawrence, okay.
But why not. It would be a bit unfair. Let the older ones get their share also.


Maybe a little early, but here’s an independent gem that could be a contender next season… still in production though so it’s hard to say! Replicas, starring Selma Blair… or


I see a name missing which I am surprised about considering some of the other artist nominated for awards. It may just be me but, shouldn’t Chloe Grace Moretz be nominated for her turn as Hit Girl in “Kick Ass”, at the least? I mean, wasn’t it pretty unanimous that she is what made “Kick Ass” live up to it’s name? Isn’t that one of the greatest child performances of all time? I think that a lot of people agree with me on this, not really for an Oscar contender but definitely for most of the these other awards. She should be raking up nominations easy.

The Ghost of Easter

Hmmmm…… Could John C. Reilly in Cyrus turn out to be a serious oscar/awardseason contender (for nominations, not wins of course)?
