After last night’s, I’ll just say average, Golden Globe Awards, and Thursday’s spectacular Critics Choice Movie Awards, we are in full swing of awards season and just nearly one week away from the Oscar nominations. More importantly, the sad thing is that after February 26, 2012, sites like the Awards Circuit, Awards Daily, etc. can become a wasteland. Nothing for us to talk about except next year’s ceremony which can be simply pulling at straws and creating discussion. Obviously on the site we’ll be talking about Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” and Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” to get us through the year.

The Awards Circuit readership has spoken! The community unveiled their nominees for the 2012 Awards Circuit Community Awards with Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” leading with eleven nominations including Best Picture and Director. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences implemented a new rule that a film requires 5% of first place votes in order to be nominated for Best Picture. The Awards Circuit adopted a similar rule that a film must receive 5% of votes in total to be nominated for Best Picture. Consequently, eight films made the final cut and were nominated for Best Picture.

Bérénice Bejo and Malcolm McDowell in THE ARTIST (The Weinstein Company)
“The Artist” lead the way with three golden statues including Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actor for Jean Dujardin. Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants” followed with two wins including Best Picture (Drama) and another award for lead George Clooney. Probably the biggest surprise of the night was Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” winning Best Screenplay and Madonna’s not-well received “W.E.” taking home Original Song, which is ineligible for Oscar consideration. Check out all the winners for film and television after the jump.

- It was another busy and exciting week here at The Awards Circuit. Perhaps the most important event that came out of the week were the airings of the first two major awards shows of the season, and our coverage of them: The 38th Annual People’s Choice Awards and The 17th Annual Critic’s Choice Awards. While the former awards show rarely has an impact on Oscar season, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 did receive widespread love by the fans by winning the award for “Favorite Movie.” Will Academy voters finally start paying attention, and place the final “Potter” film on the nomination list, announcing January 24th? Time will tell, but we hold our breath in suspense. As for the the Critic’s Choice Awards, The Artist won big, and it was a joyous occasion LIVE blogging with fellow readers, who provided astute, hilarious, and knowledgeable insight in the LIVE blog discussion. Your involvement is always treasured.
