2013 New York Film Critics Circle Awards American Hustle

The New York Film Critics Circle Awards were announced this afternoon.  Often, these awards are considered a barometer of the Academy Award nominations and eventual winners.  American Hustle gained some traction, winning Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence.  Hustle’s Best Picture win comes as quite a shock, as most award forecasters predicted 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, or Inside Llewyn Davis as the front runners. 

Jared Leto’s portrayal of an AIDS addled transgender from Dallas Buyers Club beat out early favorite Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave.  Another surprise winner was Robert Redford for his mostly silent portrayal in All is Lost, winning over Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club and Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave. If these awards are any indication, this awards season will be quite spectacular.
