Almost a week away from the Oscar ceremony and we look at one of the categories that features the most newcomers this year.
Alex is joined by Film Misery contributor Justin Jagoe to talk about movies and manipulation on this week’s podcast.
Stay tuned for live commentary and results throughout the night during the Critics Choice Awards.
It is no surprise that one particular film swept the 3rd Annual Film Misery Awards. See my picks and share your own in the comments!
These awards are starting to look very familiar.
‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ works better as a visual showcase for Fincher than a narrative film.
The L.A. Film Critics spark some life in the Oscar campaign of ‘The Descendants’, Malick and Fassbender
Seasoned veterans and up and comers will clash in this year’s race.

The first clip contains Heath Ledger, actually sounding like the Heath that we all loved. He appears as Tony, an MC-type who is in [...]
