    NSFC announce their winners this Saturday, January 4th. They are the last of the major critics groups (NY, NBR, LA) to have their say.

    Hmm I always like this group’s selections, more so over the others so I’m expecting a couple of curveballs and also I expect ‘Blue’ to show up strongly here.

    Which blue?  “Blue Jasmine” or “Blue is the Warmest Color”?

     It would be helpful if Adele won this (hopefully without a tie this time).

    I too tend to like/agree with this group’s choice more than the others.  Perhaps being the last of the majors (where they have time to digest the other groups’ choices), their selections tend to be less predictable and yet less impulsive.  And they have no qualms picking films that are not studios pushed.  That said, I think they will pick “12” as BP.

    I have a strong feeling Spike Jonze  (“Her’) and “12 Years A Slave”  will have a strong showing here on Saturday.

    Those 60 members (including KENNETH TURAN, PETER TRAVERS, STEPHANIE ZACHAREK, JOE MORGENSTERN, JUSTIN CHANG, DAVID DENBY) are the right group to represent the final say in all the Critics Groups awards of 2013/2014.

    Kind of like a summation of it all.

    Can’t wait!

    I believe this group may go their own way this year and choose something that has yet to win a major best picture like “Nebraska”, no Alexander Payne film has yet won from this group as even “Sideways” was beaten by “Million Dollar Baby”, or even more likely “Inside Llewyn Davis”. I could easily see “Gravity” or “Her” winning from the group, I think “12 Years a Slave” may to conventional a choice for their often outre tastes, but something tells me there are critics hungry to see “Inside Llewyn Davis” win a major best picture prize. Call me crazy but is it a crazier choice than winners like “Waltz with Bashir”, “Out of Sight” or “Melancholia”? Also, the Coen brothers have never won from this group and I think that works in their favor.

    The thing to keep in mind here is one big peculiarty unless they’ve adopted to modern technology. They have 60 members, who can submit their top 3 choices in each category even if not present. But if there isn’t a clear winner – which happens a majority of the time – it then is left to those who actually show up in NY (sometimes fewer than half) to decide who wins.

    Makes it even tougher to predict. 

    For me, film could be any of 12 Yrs, ILD or Her. Others are longer shots, but again, it depends on who shows up.

    Her is going to win either picture or director in my opinion. I’m predicting Leto, Squibb/Hawkins, Exarchopoulos/Blanchett and Isaac to win.

    Also – this is a group with no ceremony, so no one gets a chance to hobnob with grateful winners later. They just mail out a certificate.

    This is IMO the most legitimate group out there, but the one with the least PR.

    Ha, “Matthew McConaughey, Magic Mike & Bernie“.  Not predicting him, but how can he possibly lose this year if they gave it to him for that?
