Oscar Season: Indiana Film Critics Association Awards

boyhood-image

The big question everyone is asking is: “can Boyhood win when it counts?” which is at the Oscars. Yes, it has been cleaning up through the film critics awards, but they love their independent darlings. Oscar, on the hand, is a mixed bag. Personally, I am hoping for a “Birdman” win on the big night, but most people that I know are in the “Boyhood” camp. It is becoming more and more clear that these are the two to beat, for sure. Perhaps we will be seeing another Best Picture / Best Director split with Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”) getting director and “Birdman” getting Best Picture. This is just the start of my speculation.

Loving the little side votes for people like Ralph Fiennes (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) who know one is talking about but reminds us of their great performances this year. I truly hope Jessica Chastain clinches the Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in “A Most Violent Year”. And every award that “Whiplash” receives is a giant win in my book.
