Are we underway now? If so, we start the 2011 Oscar season with a TIE?!?!?!
Yep. A tie. Between two films that could not be more diametrically opposed to one another. Mike Mills’ Beginners and Terrence Malick’s The Tree Of Life each get a tally mark for winning a Best Feature/Best Picture prize.
The Gotham Awards may have a minimal impact on the Academy Awards, but with apologies to the New York Film Critics Circle, they are still first!
Winners after the cut and stay with Awards Circuit all season long for breaking news, analysis, predictions, and everything else you could possibly need for this and every awards season!
