    Very cool. By far the best awards handed out thus far.

    Harmony Korine was robbed for his Direction of Spring Breakers. Happy for Franco's role in it and recognition.

    This awards were so much better than NYFCC. But Paulina García should win Best Actress for her amazing performance in Gloria.

    Haven't seen this many ties since last trip to Men's Warehouse; Nice to spread the wealth, but next year either add a member or lose one, but make sure it's an odd number.

    That's cool, completely ignore sound (except music), not like it's 50% of a movie or anything....

    Nice to see Hollywood becoming less gender specific as James Franco and Jared Leto won for best supporting "actress".

  • Joe H | December 8, 2013 5:40 PMReply

    whatever

    Even though this is clearly an error, I'm 100% in agreement that Cuaron and Jonze are best actors of the year. Yawn.

  • Spring Break Spring Break Spring Bbbbrrreeeeeaaakkkkkkkkkk | December 8, 2013 3:34 PMReply

    Spring Breakers is a cult classic and misunderstood movie. It was simply magnificent. Anyway, whatever some people thought about the movie, Franco's performance was outstanding (without Franco there is no movie) and finally he's getting some credit for his performance.

    I couldn't be more happy for him. I hope, he collects more awards for his iconic performance.

    Great news...

    Yes, I am so happy for Franco, too. He nailed his Spring Breakers role outstandingly. But the other roles, by the girls, were pretty freaking good, too. James added color to the film, but the overall production was new and breath-taking (new because I think no one has done a teen/college party drama ever). Plus, Korine should have been nominated. Easily.

    jared leto and james franco won best supporting actor (tie). i guess franco is getting some buzz after all
