Awards season is upon us, and things are heating up with the NYFCC. While their winners are certainly interesting, it’s hard to say what this means for the Oscars. Will Boyhood have enough love to take the top two prizes? Are we underestimating Cotillard and Spall? And is there anything that can stop Simmons and Arquette?

Also announced are the Satellite nominations. Now, I’m going to post a link to the nominations (because there’s a lot of them.) But needless to say, they’re interesting. Here are a few takeaways
Is “I Can Get You What You Want” going to be the big push from Muppets Most Wanted? Hopefully, “Something So Right” ends up getting a majority of the love.
Meryl Streep failed to get nominated. I think the world is coming to an end.
Amy Adams failed to get nominated. Maybe the Academy didn’t see her movie in time?
Tilda Swinton gets on for Snowpiercer. Great, I have to see it now.
No Interstellar for Picture? Don’t worry, the film will NOT go quietly into the night.
And, of course…
THE LEGO MOVIE FOR BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY!!!
That’s all from me.
