David Fincher’s cult-classic Fight Club leads the nominations with twelve with Sam Mendes’ American Beauty closely behind it with eleven. The beautiful and talented Julianne Moore is double-nominated for her performances in Neil Jordan’s The End of the Affair and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia. She is the second person in ACCA history to be double nominated in two separate years. The first was Kate Winslet.
Other record setting includes Buena Vista Social Club that becomes the first film to be nominated for Documentary and Foreign Language Film. Thomas Newman is the second composer to be double-nominated in the same category. Michael Clarke Duncan is the second actor to be nominated by the community posthumously for The Green Mile.

By now, hopefully many of you listened to the Awards Circuit Power Hour from this week to hear your nominees for the Awards Circuit Community Awards for 1999. Looking at the film year, it was a great opportunity to make some eclectic choices in various categories which many were taken. David Fincher’s cult-classic Fight Club led the nominations with twelve including Best Picture, Director, and two Best Actor nominations for Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. Sam Mendes’ Oscar-winner American Beauty followed closely behind with eleven nominations including a citation for Chris Cooper in Best Supporting Actor.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia scored nine nominations including Supporting mentions for Tom Cruise and Julianne Moore. Moore was double-nominated by the community for the second time. The other mention is in Lead Actress for Neil Jordan’s The End of the Affair, the sole nomination for the film. A film that surprisingly only scored one nomination was Michael Mann’s The Insider. The powerhouse film that was nominated for seven Oscars only managed Russell Crowe for citation in Lead Actor. Stanley Kubrick’s final film Eyes Wide Shut received one nomination as well for Nicole Kidman.
Jim Carrey received his second ACCA nomination for Lead Actor for Milos Forman’s Man on the Moon. He’ll compete against Oscar’s Best Actor winner Kevin Spacey. Hilary Swank from Boys Don’t Cry and Annette Bening from American Beauty will square off again for the coveted title of Best Actress but they are now joined by Nicole Kidman for Eyes Wide Shut, Julianne Moore, and Reese Witherspoon for Election.
Supporting Actor had a tie for six nominees that include Cooper, Cruise, the late Michael Clarke Duncan for The Green Mile, Jude Law for The Talented Mr. Ripley, John Malkovich for Being John Malkovich, and Haley Joel Osment for The Sixth Sense. Supporting Actress will have Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie square off against Helena Bonham Carter for Fight Club, Cameron Diaz and Catherine Keener for Being John Malkovich, and Julianne Moore.
The blockbuster hit The Matrix scored one major nomination in Original Screenplay after many speculating the potential for the film to show up in Best Picture and Directing. The Wachowski’s classic film managed seven nominations in total. Toy Story 2 landed an Adapted Screenplay nomination along with Alexander Payne’s Election and Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile.
Voting will open up later today. You will only be able to vote one time per category so make sure it counts. Who are you rooting for? Read more on David Fincher’s ‘Fight Club’ Leads ACCA Nominations with 12, ‘American Beauty’ Scores 11…

Rian Johnson’s newest Looper hits theaters this weekend. I saw it yesterday after the screening of Life of Pi and one word came to mind after walking out, overrated. Definitely entertaining but super long-winded and not so well-executed in a concept that is surely inventive. Time travel stuff is cool but the Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young Bruce Willis is very distracting, especially when he’s talking. I believe this is the birth of a franchise. Watch out for sequels (if it makes enough money). I’m curious to see what our readers think. Be a critic.

After weeks of technical difficulties and just being insanely busy, the last Awards Circuit Community Award Voting process for the year is in full effect. Better than that, it’s the first ACCA: Best of the Decade.
What happens is ALL the winners, chosen by our readership, are listed together in their respective categories (keep in mind, we’ve had ties over the years.) from Years 2000 to 2009. Unfortunately, some of the technical categories like Sound, Makeup, even the Documentary categories are unable to be listed because we didn’t deliver them consistently over the years.
But that’s not all. During this week, the ACCA pages will be getting a facelift along with the Top Ten pages for our Staff and the Davis Awards (Editor’s Choices). Voting is open now and I CANNOT wait to see what our readership calls the VERY BEST of the decade. I have my suspicions on what will be chosen but I have no idea.
Use this space for your “For Your Consideration” pleas as well as anything else you want to yell about. There’s also the ACCA button on the sidebar.

In case you missed or didn’t make through our podcast on Sunday, we announced the winners of the Awards Circuit Community Awards for Year 2000. All I can say is, when the readers have favorites, you guys and gals make it known. Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream was the big winner with five ACCAs including Motion Picture, Director (Darren Aronofsky), and Lead Actress (Ellen Burstyn). The film was also runner-up in the six other categories it was nominated in. Christian Bale won Best Actor for his portrayal in American Psycho while Benicio del Toro mirrored his Oscar win in Supporting Actor in Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic, which also won Adapted Screenplay and Cast Ensemble. Kate Hudson beat out her co-star in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous and took the Supporting Actress prize along with Crowe’s screenplay being rewarded in the Original category. Heavy favorite Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, directed by Ang Lee, won some technicals including a runner-up spot in Best Picture. Oscar’s Best Picture Winner Gladiator won a couple of technical awards as well.
Starting Monday, July 30th, we will open up voting for ACCA: Best of the Decades. All the winnners, chosen by the Awardscircuit.com readership will face-off in all the categories with one film and many performances being named the “Best of the Decade.” Gear up.
Full winners of ACCA 2000 are listed below after the jump. Read more on “Requiem for a Dream” takes top honors with Awards Circuit Readership!…

In case any of you missed it, our great Awards Circuit community chose their favorites for the year 2000. In case you’re new to our site, ACCA (or Awards Circuit Community Awards) gives all the readers an opportunity to vote for their favorite films and performances of the year. As we move forward during our present time, we have been going back in time to vote on years in the past.
What makes this round of voting exciting is Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which leads nomination tally with fourteen, the most nominated film in ACCA history, could become the first foreign language film to take the award. The film will have tough competition behind Ridley Scott’s Gladiator and Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream, which have thirteen and eleven nominations respectively. Is there a deep love for Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous or Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic that can rule the day? You decide.
You can click on the “ACCA Voting” button on the sidebar or you can click here to go directly to the page. Voting will stay open until Friday, July 20 (the day a certain Caped Crusader film opens). Winners will be announced on the following Sunday’s podcast. Read more on ACCA 2000 final ballots are open!…

Welcome to the Awards Circuit Community Awards Voting Station. We are diving back in time to revisit films and performances that might have deserved more recognition than previously thought. The next year in question is 2000, the year Ridley Scott’s Gladiator defeated the likes of Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic. Do you feel the same way now? How about when Cameron Crowe’s beloved Almost Famous missed out on a Best Picture mention? Do you feel Bjork should have been among the five strong women for Dancer in the Dark? Does Russell Crowe still get your vote over Tom Hanks or Geoffrey Rush? It’s your time to shine! Check em’ all out and vote for your favorites!
Here are some rules for the voting process of the longlists:

You are playing the role of Susan Evans, played by Wendy Crewson in Joseph Ruben’s child thriller The Good Son (1993) starring Macaulay Culkin as the sinister son Henry Evans and Elijah Wood as the young Mark, trying to save the family from Henry’s wrath. At the end of the film, Henry attempts to push his mother off a cliff to a watery grave. After Mark and Henry fight in an “epic” battle, both young boys find themselves hanging off the cliff with Susan holding one in each hand. Susan must make the ultimate choice between her own son and nephew. Which one will she let live and which one will she let die?
Here’s your question:
You have the Oscars of Roberto Benigni for Lead Actor from the Foreign Language Film winner, Life is Beautiful (1997) in one hand and from Cameron Crowe’s sports dramedy Jerry Maguire (1996), Cuba Gooding, Jr’s Oscar hangs for Supporting Actor. You must make a choice and let one of them go and save the other. Whose Oscar will plummet?

The first annual Awards Circuit Commmunity Awards (ACCA) for Television was announced last week. ABC’s “Modern Family” led with eight nominations including Best Comedy Series. Nearly all of the show’s performers were nominated as well leaving off Jesse Tyler Ferguson. “Mad Men” scored seven nominations including Lead Actor for Jon Hamm and Lead Actress for Elizabeth Moss, the second most nominated show of the awards.
HBO had a great showing with the community. “Game of Thrones” landed six nominations including Best Drama. Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, and Lena Headey all scored nominations for their roles respectively. “Boardwalk Empire” also landed six nods including Supporting Actor for departing cast member Michael Pitt.

Beauty & the Beast (1991) has the great honor of becoming the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture. It took the Academy expanding the field to ten nominees to garner the likes of Pixar’s Up (2009) and Toy Story 3 (2010), both arguably worthy of recognition in a year of five. Name as many animated feature films youfeel were either snubbed or questionably left off a Best Picture lineup at the Oscars.
We can go back to the introduction of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs (1937) as a crystal ball into a future of animation that would shape our very childhoods (even some adults). Two films that have a significant impact on me, standing toe-to-toe with the very best live action films ever created are Disney’s The Lion King (1994), a film that has a magic, aura, and presence I haven’t seen in film in a very long time. The other is Pixar’s Monster’s Inc. (2001), a very underrated achievement in their already impressive resume.
Many will speak of Dreamworks’ Shrek (2001) and perhaps Shrek 2 (2004) as two monumental works. I’m a champion of the former and still think it’s one of the 2001′s best films. Read more on Oscar Question of the Day – Animated Best Pictures…
It can get lonely out there for an Oscar lover. You often can find yourself running around trying to have a conversation with anyone who will talk movies.
Sidenote: my life goal is to have the Awards Circuit offices on one floor and an entire other floor for hangout and movie talk with anyone from off the streets who NEEDS to do so. One can dream.
Anyway, your daily Oscar Question is below. If you have an idea for a question, send it to email@example.com or on our Facebook page or on Twitter.
Meryl Streep has 3 Oscars. If you could switch any of them out for another performance, what would it be?
