Once again, ‘The Hurt Locker’ is voted as the best film of 2009 by another critics group. It is quite outstanding what this little film from the summer is doing all over the nation during awards season. Let’s see if the film can keeps its momentum up when it counts in early March.
Mo’Nique appears to be sweeping these critics awards for Best Supporting Actress. Do not be surprised when she holds the golden statue behind the podium during the Academy Awards.
Colin Firth has emerged as Best Actor over George Clooney. Like I said before (and most people know), this year is an extremely tight race for Best Actor. I’ll do a separate post about it later.
And finally, Kathryn Bigelow wins Best Director again. Will this be the year a female director finally wins the award???
