‘Argo’ and Jennifer Lawrence win Gold Derby Film Awards – Oscars next?

Never mind those pesky Oscars. Ben Affleck‘s political thriller “Argo” just swept up three of Hollywood’s highly coveted Gold Derby Film Awards: Best Picture, Best Director (Affleck), and Best Editing. Recipients are chosen by thousands of Gold Derby readers, who’ve doled out these trophies 10 previous times on the eve of the Oscars, often foreshadowing eventual recipients of the academy’s equivalent prize.

Two other movies won three awards apiece. Ang Lee‘s emotional shipwreck drama “Life of Pi,” which was nominated eight times, mostly in technical categories, won Best Cinematography, Best Score, and Best Visual Effects.

Nine-time nominee “Les Miserables” grabbed the laurels for Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), Best Makeup/Hair, and Best Sound.

Spreading the wealth, Gold Derby voters gave four films two prizes each. “Lincoln,” which led with 13 nominations, won Best Adapted Screenplay (Tony Kushner) and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, who with four career wins now ties Meryl Streep as Gold Derby’s most awarded film actor. He previous won Best Actor for “Gangs of New York” (2002) and “There Will Be Blood” (2007), and Best Actor of the Decade for “Blood.”

Silver Linings Playbook” won its bids for Best Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) and Best Ensemble. “Anna Karenina” claimed a pair of technical trophies: Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.

Django Unchained” snagged Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino, his second victory out of nine nominations. He previously won the category for “Inglourious Basterds” in 2009. The spaghetti western also reaped Best Supporting Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio, who is the only acting champ at these awards without an Oscar nomination. This is DiCaprio’s second win out of six individual bids; he previously garnered Best Actor in 2006 for “The Departed.”

Other victors include “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” which won Best Breakthrough Performer for its young star Quvenzhane Wallis. “Wreck-It Ralph” was hailed as Best Animated Feature. “Searching for Sugar Man” won Best Documentary. And “Amour” triumphed as Best Foreign Language Film. It’s Michael Haneke‘s second film to rule the category, following “The White Ribbon” in 2009.

Zero Dark Thirty” was this year’s biggest shutout, losing all six of its nominations. It’s the only Best Picture nominee to go away empty handed.

  1. Well, five of the categories I voted for got wins. Help me out here…what is it about the makeup in Les Miz that people seem to like so much over those other films? Because those other films all looked like they had better makeup to me. I feel like I’m missing something, and I’m starting to really doubt my Oscar pick of The Hobbit for best makeup.

  2. For Amber, Les Mis had hundreds of extras all of whom had to look like individuals in poverty in 19th century France with varying degrees of disease, age, illness, infirmity not to mention aging Jackman realistically over 30 years. It was a monumental job. There is more detail on a feature piece on the movie website and on You Tube.

  3. the day will come than you have to pay more then now. better you start to pay what belongs to me. take %30 for all costs and fee. the rest i wait for. i am in trouble. cant pay rent. must leave my appartment soon. safe my life please. dont be too late. maybe soon i have money for lowyer. you are not the only case this kind.
