    I am so hoping Boyhood wins lots of awards (Picture, Director, Supporting Actress, Screenplay – and a surprise win for Ethan Hawke would be super great too) NSFC has a long history of making unusual choices in their prize-giving, so this ought to be interesting!!! 

    If not Boyhood, some other terrific films from 2014 – or a foreign film such as Ida or documentary such as Citizenfour…. I like that this group often goes with offbeat choices!

    Village Voice & Indiewire Polls show almost none (most) of the participating NSFC members ranked Julianne Moore #1. So it is a forgone conclusion Julianne Moore’s name will not be appearing in the winners list tomorrow.

    Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard and Agata Trzebuchowska will be battling it out for Best Actress.

    Big day today! “Boyhood” for the sweep in best picture? Can Marion Cotillard cover some lost ground in lead actress? What’s going to happen in a tight lead actor race? This would be a wonderful time to acknowledge Ralph Fiennes for “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Does J.K. Simmons have supporting actor locked here for “Whiplash”? Can Patricia Arquette continue amassing wins for “Boyhood,” or is Agata Kulesza a renewed threat to win instead for “Ida” (I’m really hoping for the latter, though LAFCA already awarding Kulesza takes the surprise factor out of there slightly)?

    For some reason I see them giving Patricia and Agata a tie. In my dreams, however, they do a reverse-LAFCA (Agata lead, Patty supporting).

    Winners Announced! Goodbye to Language wins Best Picture!

    http://variety.com/2015/film/news/goodbye-to-language-named-best-picture-by-national-society-of-film-critics-1201391770/ 

    JANUARY 3, 2015 | 01:08PM PT

    Chief Film Critic@JustinCChang

    Goodbye to Language,” Jean-Luc Godard’s visually and sonically inventive 3Dextravaganza, was named best picture of the year by the National Society of Film Criticson Saturday.

    In honoring the French New Wave icon’s 39th feature, a densely layered 69-minute fantasia on the ongoing evolution of language, history, coupledom and cinema, the Society went decidedly against the grain in a season that has largely favored “Boyhood,” which was feted by the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. Although Richard Linklater’s 12-year coming-of-age drama lost the NSFC’s top prize by a single point in the final balloting, it still came away with wins for director and supporting actress Patricia Arquette.

    Besides “Boyhood,” the only film to receive more than one award was “Mr. Turner,” Mike Leigh’s portrait of the British painter J.M.W. Turner, which was cited for Timothy Spall’s lead performance and Dick Pope’s cinematography.

    It’s hardly the first time the NSFC, with its long-standing reputation for discerning, under-the-radar choices, has refused to conform to a predictable awards-season narrative. Typically the last of the major critics’ organizations to weigh in each year, the group has a strong track record of bestowing its top honors on films from overseas, including “Waltz With Bashir,” “Melancholia,” “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Yi yi.”

    Although Kino Lorber’s national rollout for “Goodbye to Language” has been small even by those arthouse standards, limited to a handful of 3D-equipped specialty venues across the U.S., the film is easily Godard’s best-received work in the decade-plus since “In Praise of Love,” and has had no shortage of ardent critical champions since its premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

    The Society hewed to a more familiar path in other categories, even echoing the New York Film Critics Circle’s choices in all four acting races: In addition to the victories for Spall and Arquette, Marion Cotillard was named best actress for her performances in both James Gray’s “The Immigrant” and the Dardenne brothers’ “Two Days, One Night,” while J.K. Simmons took supporting actor honors for “Whiplash.”

    Similarly in keeping with their multiple mentions this season, Wes Anderson received the screenplay prize for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” while “Citizenfour,” Laura Poitras’ documentary about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, was named best nonfiction film. Along with Cotillard, a runaway favorite for actress (beating her closest competitor, “Still Alice’s” Julianne Moore, by more than 40 points), “Citizenfour” was the only winner to be determined on the first ballot.

    Film Heritage awards were voted to the Museum of Modern Art and the Vitaphone Project. Variety chief film critic Scott Foundas was elected to succeed David Sterritt as chair of the Society.

    I just checked the winners on their website and what struck me is that they noted Johansson for 2 movies (Lucy? Come on!), but Cotillard and Moore only for 1. But apparently Variety knows something more because there is award for Cotillard’s both roles. ???

    Anyway, happy to see Hardy, Kulesza and the screenplay from GBH on the list. Very particular choices, as always, and I like it.

    Breaking down the crossover wins between NYFCC, LAFCA, and NSFC

    Three Wins:
    Director – Richard Linklater, Boyhood
    Supporting Actor – J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
    Screenplay – Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel 
    Documentary/Nonfiction Film – Citizenfour

    Two Wins:
    Picture – Boyhood (NYFCC, LAFCA)
    Actor – Timothy Spall, Mr. Turner (NYFCC, NSFC)
    Actress – Marion Cotillard, Two Days One Night/The Immigrant (NYFCC, NSFC) 
    Supporting Actress – Patricia Arquette, Boyhood (NYFCC, NSFC) (LAFCA gave Best Actress prize)
    Foreign Language Film – Ida (NYFCC, LAFCA)

    One Win:
    Picture – Goodbye to Language (NSFC)
    Actor – Tom Hardy, Locke (LAFCA)
    Actress – Patricia Arquette, Boyhood (LAFCA) (NSFC, NYFCC gave Best Supporting Actress prize)
    Animated Film – The Lego Movie (NYFCC); The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (LAFCA) (NSFC didn’t have the category)
    Cinematography – Darius Khondji, The Immigrant (NYFCC); Emmanuel Lubezki, Birdman (LAFCA); Dick Pope, Mr. Turner (NSFC)

    I’m going to assume that NSFC opted out of the Foreign Language Film prize due to their selection of one as a Best Picture choice.

    Happy to see Rene Russo in 3rd place from the NSFC. Haven’t seen Mr. Turner, so I have no opinion on it. Boyhood losing Best Picture by one vote is good news for the film at the Oscars. Surprised to see Mark Ruffalo’s unexciting work in Foxcatcher in 2nd place for Supporting Actor. Thrilled to see Wes Anderson getting so much attention for the screenplay of The Grand Budapest Hotel.

    I’m wondering if Goodbye To Language will get any Cesar nominations at the end of the month. I wasn’t thinking it would be a contender.

    3 british actors in their top 3, yet I don’t think those will be the 3 british actors who will get Oscar nominations.

    I love Marion Cotillard but I still haven’t seen either of these two performances. Julianne Moore coming in second bodes well for her.

    Patricia Arquette and J.K. Simmons are sweeping almost all the supporting awards; I think they are both Oscar bound, regardless of who wins at the Globes.

    As usual, fascinating list from the NSFC.
