NY and LA announce this weekend

The New York Film Critics Circle, The New York Film Critics Online, and the LA Critics will announce this weekend right before/during the time when the NBR announces... and I'll have to be writing an autobiography for a class this week -yes, an autobiography, and it's massive - so I cannot be obsessing over film awards all weekend... just one big whirl of obsession on monday, and then a break... at least that's what I'm telling myself.

So anyway, I'm offering up predictions now for NY/LA (the NY Online Critics are a strange bunch and I have never discerned their voting habits, so I'm not even gonna go there, really).

Here they are, roughly:

Los Angeles Film Critics Society
Picture: Brokeback Mountain (alt. King Kong)
Actor: Heath Ledger (alt. PS Hoffman)
Actress: Felicity Huffman (alt. Reese Witherspoon)
Supp. Actor: William Hurt (alt. Clifton Collins Jr.)
Supp. Actress: Scarlett Johannson (alt. Michelle Williams)
Screenplay: Brokeback Mountain (alt. Munich)
Director: Ang Lee (alt. Spielberg)
Art Direction: King Kong (alt. Memoirs)
New Generation Award: Terrence Howard (alt. Heath Ledger)

New York Film Critics Circle
Picture: A History of Violence (alt. Brokeback Mountain)
Actor: PS Hoffman (alt. Viggo Mortensen)
Actress: Q'Orianka Kilcher (alt. Laura Linney)
Supp. Actor: Clifton Collins, Jr. (alt. William Hurt)
Supp. Actress: Maria Bello (alt. Catherine Keener)
Director: David Cronenberg (alt. Ang Lee)
Screenplay: Brokeback Mountain (alt. Match Point)
Cinematography: The New World (alt. Brokeback Mountain)

Alright, that's it. Threw in some interesting choices. Flipped Hoffman and Viggo just now, because I'm sure Hoffman will score with one of these groups... even if aHoV goes over big in NY. We'll see...

I've done mine as well. So hard, yet so interesting.
