    Will the announcement take longer than all “Lord of The Rings” special edition films combined like the NYFCC?

    My prediction is that they will figure out a way to award 40+ films, so they can sell as many tables as possible, since at this point the awards basically serve to finance the group for another year, as well as provide publicists with another award to slap on to their ads until the next one comes along.

    These have got to be the least important awards out there.. Not even voted on by people in the field of work. Isn’t there a kiss of death to whomever takes Supporting Actress from NBR? Or am I thinking of a different group?

    That’s them.

    The group was once important (and actually thrived when they became a censorship-rating group in the 1930s). But they are now people with a lot of varying skills, some related to film, many not, and ride on past reputation and again because publicists like to have a group that they can push if their clients win.

    They had some small scandals some years ago that have been cleared up a bit to their credit.

    Regardless of all the criticism, I think they absolutely get it right with their choices sometimes, recent wins for Lesley Manville and Michael Mann come to mind. I also respect that they aren’t all about predicting the Oscars and throw some fun curveballs in their Top 10 list 🙂 . I wouldn’t be surprised to find something divisive like Cloud Atlas making their list, which would be awesome!
