    Philadelphia Film Critics Circle:
    •Best Film – Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
    runner-up – Da 5 Bloods
    •Best Actress – Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
    runner-up – tie: Aubrey Plaza (Black Bear) & Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)
    •Best Supporting Actress – Amanda Seyfried (Mank)
    runner-up – Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)
    •Best Script – First Cow
    runner-up – Never Rarely Sometimes Always
    •Best Foreign Language Feature – Jumbo
    runner-up – La Llorna

    These are maybe the most different results that we have had so far and yet, every damn time, even with them not acknowledging Nomadland anywhere else above the line, Chloé Zhao wins director.

    Chloe Zhao is clearly a lock for the director win. I can’t remember the last time a director had this much passion from critics (was it Del Toro for The Shape of Water?), her direction is the showiest and buzziest and she’s got the biggest narrative. I mean at the moment she has been nominated 28 times at these critics groups (+ Gotham) and has won 22 awards.

    What seems to be interesting about these critics awards is that Frances McDormand started far ahead of Davis and Kirby. At first this started to make me think that Frances is being slept on for the win at the televised awards (which to be fair she still is) because she was sweeping but Mulligan has been winning and winning more and more of these awards. She now has been nominated at 20 critics awards (as opposed to Frances’s 23 (incl. Gotham)) and has won 8 awards in comparison to the 12 won by Frances.

    I think we could be in with a situation like in 2017. I thought 2019 was the best comparison for this race but just like in 2017 we have Frances McDormand in a quieter performance in the early and almost undeniable BP frontrunner (and eventual winner) who seems unstoppable but then on comes Carey Mulligan in a performance with a novelty factor of being against the type in a controversial film that is aided in narrative by a poignant and topical social message. And then they swap at the televised.

    Under this logic Viola Davis is third in the sense that her transformational performance has wowed industry and audiences alike and she’s both someone who people want to win a lead Oscar and is considered the frontrunner but her co-star is likelier to be win competitive at this stage. A bit like Ronan in Lady Bird. Vanessa Kirby is fourth like Margot Robbie as the festival buzzed about performance from an on the radar rising foreign star in Hollywood (Kirby after being in The Crown and Mission Impossible and Robbie after being in The Wolf of Wall Street and Suicide Squad) that was picked up by a high profile studio but then seen to be a big contender until they started under-performing in wins with critics. The nomination will be her award but she’ll get all the roles and another nomination and potential win in the future.

    It’s also making me inclined to think that <i>Nomadland </i>(just like The Shape of Water) will be the cinematic festival darling that performs very well with the critics but then loses the Globe and BAFTA to another film performing very well with critics groups but then comes back with a PGA win and then an Oscar win. If we’re to go by the critics scorecard then Promising Young Woman seems like it could be that film that wins the Globe and BAFTA but loses the Oscar and PGA.

    The answer is never. This has so far been the biggest sweep ever in any category.

    Well that proves the point even further. There’s no beating Zhao. Even if the film loses Picture.

    He still lost a few awards to Spike Lee who ironically is (at a stretch) the closest thing to a challenger for Zhao at the critics awards considering he is the only other director to have won more than a single critics award for his work.

    This is the first time I have laughed during this third lockdown.

    For Roma, Alfonso Cuarón lost Los Angeles, Boston, Boston Online, San Diego and St. Louis, all of which have been won by Chloé Zhao. (I did not consider Cuarón’s losses from groups that have not announced their winner this year yet.) Cuarón indeed won far and away the most in his year, but the level of Zhao’s sweep is unprecedented. Even Chicago Indie and Philadelphia, which Zhao has lost, have a history of being such outliers that Cuarón did not win them either.

    As for Gravity, Cuarón led the season for sure, but he lost frequently to Steve McQueen, most notably at New York, not to mention they both lost to the Coen brothers at the National Society of Film Critics.

    How hilarious/awful it would be if after all this Zhao still lost all the televised awards. I’m still nervous about the Globes.

    After what happened last year with Joon-Ho/Mendes, I’ll keep faith in Zhao until the end

    Anyone know how many critic wins Renée won last year before she went on to whoop the competition’s ass when the televised awards began?
