  1. So happy for A Most Violent Year and the incredible Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. Well deserved! I hope the latter ends up scoring a ridiculously deserved first Oscar win.

  2. Congratulations Michael Keaton on winning both the Gotham Film Awards and the National Board of Review,keep up the good work.

  3. In my opinion Clint Eastwood is the best director and American Sniper is the BEST FILM OF THE YEAR.
    In my opinion, Clint Eastwood deserves all his awards.
    Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of our Fathers,Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling,Gran Torino, Invictus, Hereafter, J. Edgar, Jersey Boys and American Sniper are the best films of the last 10 years.
    In my opinion the National Board of review awards are the best awards of the year, and I agree with the awards. Clint Eastwood is the best director of the year, and in my opinion, American Sniper is the best film of the year.
