Nomadland Wins At The Critics Choice Awards

The Critics Choice Awards, which are voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, were handed out tonight.  I’m not sure how many people actually watched the show, given that it was competing with Oprah interviewing Meghan and Harry.  I watched it while doing some cleaning around the house.  To be honest, I was more into the cleaning than the watching but, from what I did see, it appeared that the “ceremony”  was a bit of step-up for last week’s disastrous Golden Globes.  While there were still a few awkward moments caused by the virtual nature of the ceremony, it didn’t appear to be as a painful as anything happened last weekend.  If nothing else, Taye Diggs was a charming host and Barb and Star were nowhere to be seen.

As for what won, it was pretty much the usual suspects. Nomadland took best picture.  Daniel Kaluuya has pretty much become the new front runner for Best Supporting Actor.  After losing her Globe, Maria Bakalova won a Critics Choice.  Carey Mulligan won best actress for Promising Young Woman.

ADRIENNE SHELLY AWARD – For a film that most passionately opposes violence against women
Adrienne Shelly was a promising actress and filmmaker who was brutally strangled in her apartment in 2006 at the age of forty by a construction worker in the building, after she complained about noise. Her killer tried to cover up his crime by hanging her from a shower20rack in her bathroom, to make it look like suicide. He later confessed that he was having a “bad day.” Shelly, who left behind a baby daughter, had just completed her film Waitress, which she also starred in, and which was honored at Sundance after her death.

WINNER: Promising Young Woman
Runner Up: The Invisible Man
I’m Your Woman
The Assistant

JOSEPHINE BAKER AWARD – For best expressing the woman of color experience in America
The daughter of a laundress and a musician, Baker overcame being born black, female and poor, and marriage at age fifteen, to become an internationally acclaimed legendary performer, starring in the films Princess Tam Tam, Moulin Rouge and Zou Zou. She also survived the race riots in East St. Louis, Illinois as a child, and later expatriated to France to escape US racism. After participating heroically in the underground French Resistance during WWII, Baker returned to the US where she was a crusader for racial equality. Her activism led to attacks against her by reporter Walter Winchell who denounced her as a communist, leading her to wage a battle against him. Baker was instrumental in ending segregation in many theaters and clubs, where she refused to perform unless integration was implemented.

WINNER: Miss Juneteenth
Runner Up: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
The Forty-Year-Old Version

KAREN MORLEY AWARD – For best exemplifying a woman’s place in history or society, and a courageous search for identity
Karen Morley was a promising Hollywood star in the 1930s, in such films as Mata Hari and Our Daily Bread. She was driven out of Hollywood for her leftist political convictions by the Blacklist and for refusing to testify against other actors, while Robert Taylor and Sterling Hayden were informants against her. And also for daring to have a child and become a mother, unacceptable for female stars in those days. Morley maintained her militant political activism for the rest of her life, running for Lieutenant Governor on the American Labor Party ticket in 1954. She passed away in 2003, unrepentant to the end, at the age of 93.

WINNER: The United States vs. Billie Holiday
Runner Up: Shirley
Radium Girls
The Glorias

Regina King – The first celebrity to commit to the Time’s Up ‘4% Challenge’ which urges the industry to hire more women directors, the award winning actress has also pledged to have women make up fifty percent of the crews for her films.

WINNER: Janelle Monae – Antebellum
Runner Up: Jodie Foster – The Mauritanian

Runner Up: Swallow

WINNER: Claire Dunn – Herself
Runner Up: Elizabeth Moss – The Invisible Man

WINNER: Sarah Paulson – Run

Rudy Giuliani – For removing any doubt about the kind of creepy predator he is, in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. Of course there were no consequences for his behavior, even though it was captured on film and broadcast worldwide.
Dennis Harvey – in his Variety review for Promising Young Woman, stating Carey Mulligan is not ‘hot enough’ for the role. Not to mention perpetuating the lie that rape is about sex and not violence against women. And, why we need women film critics more than ever…
The Prom – for casting straight actors in queer roles in the most anticipated lesbian movie of the year, and making it seem like overcoming homophobia is as simple as singing a song.
Dallas Sonnier and Adam Donaghey – For sexual harassment and abuse at Cineaste Magazine, and the cover-up.​

Artwork of the Day: End of a J.D. (by Mitchell Hooks)

by Mitchell Hooks

This is from 1960.  J.D. stands for juvenile delinquent.  I like this cover, with the way the two realistically-drawn characters are surrounded by an expressionistic cityscape.  This cover was done by Mitchell Hooks, who we’ve featured many times on the site and who we’ll probably feature many more times in the future.

Music Video of the Day: No Money Down by Lou Reed (1988, directed by Godley and Creme)

“Lou decided to get Godley and Creme to do the video for ‘Video Violence’ with these robots. Then the label decided to change single, but Lou didn’t want to waste the robots, so you had this great clever pop song with a video of this robot tearing its own face off… MTV debuted it, and then we got a call saying people were complaining that their video was making kids cry.”

— Lou Reed’s bassist Fernando Saunders on the music video for No Money Down

That pretty much says it all.  How many young viewers were traumatized by the discovery that Lou Reed was a terminator?  I can’t imagine that the man between Metal Machine Music minded too much.
