The Descendants’ Tops Dallas Fort Worth Film Critics Association

Post by Cinderella on Fri Dec 16 2011, 17:37

Grumble grumble. The Dallas Fort Worth Film Critics Association, of which I am a voting member, has released its list of the top movies, actors, etc. of 2011, and the final list couldn’t look more different than the ballot I submitted. Top picks include The Descendants as best picture and Alexander Payne as best director, both of whom don’t crack my top ten. Best actor goes to George Clooney for The Descendants.

Cinders, do you know how much of a guide is it that George is being nominated, but would actually get an award? Sometimes there is so much hype and chatter and then nothing! Must be a real bummer if you think you will, but don't!
