Whoa....what's in the water over there? The San Francisco Film Critics Circle gave out their awards today to a serious bunch of crap. Best Picture and screenplay to Todd Field's I Think This Is a Comedy, But I'm Not Sure, Best Foreign Film to Guillermo Del Toro's The Only Thing That Can Save Us from Franco's Vicious Dictatorship Is the Innocence of a Sweet Child, and Best Director to Paul Greengrass for his very special episode of 24. Tomorrow, get ready for the announcement of the Deluth Online Circle of Critics Association Awards and the Montpelier Movie Association of Broadcast Journalists. Will they give it to Helen Mirren?! Will it be another Scorsese-Eastwood head-to-header?!? Keep reading Reverseblog for all your year-end movie award needs.

    OMG, don't even go there. Though the Academy does seem to be into crash and burn cinema still seems like a stretch. But, as you know, the new action movie aesthetic has captured the hearts and minds of the intelligentsia, so....
    But God help us. If so, expect more "verité" action flix purporting to be high art, and thoroughly drained of humanity. Ah, to be a cinephile.

    Why do I have this godawful feeling that that very special episode of "24" is gonna win Best Picture?
