American Hustle
And so begins another week of the awards season, with yet another organization shaking up the race or least mildly altering the dominoes. This time around it's the Broadcast Film Critics Association who have revealed their nominees for 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. And the generally mainstream leading group has again gone mostly mainstream.

Oscars: How Did The Golden Globe And SAG Nominations Effect The Acting Races?
Given that we looked at some of the acting categories right at the start of the season, a lot's changed since then. Many of the initial predictions were on the money, of course, but plenty weren't (*cough* Cameron Diaz in "The Counselor"). If anything, though, the races have only got tighter, adding up to one of the toughest and most competitive years we can remember for awards-contending performances. In the last few weeks, things have started to crystalize a little, thanks to the beginning of awards season proper with the critics' groups last week, and the SAG and Golden Globe nominations in the last couple of days. So, with it being so long since we cast a light on these races, we thought we'd go back and see how they're shaping up. Which categories are locking up, and which remain very much in play?

12 Years A Slave
Another morning, another awards nominations announcement: this time, it's the turn of the oft-derided Golden Globes. Will "12 Years A Slave" carry on its success from the SAGs yesterday? Or will the Hollywood Foreign Press Association throw a spanner in the works? Most importantly, which nomination will be the most obvious 'please come to our ceremony, famous person' nod of 2013?

We're now deep in the heart of awards season, and after the critics' groups began to have their say last week, today brings the first of the guild nominations, with the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The leading actor categories have begun to lock up, but there's room for plenty of surprises, while the supporting categories are still in flux, could start to crystalize from now—the SAG is normally a fairly reliable Academy precursor—in 2010, they matched up 19 of the eventual 20 Oscar nominations, though last year saw only 14 nominations coincide.

Gravity, Sandra Bullock
ast week, the Academy announced the longlist for their visual effects awards, from which five nominees will be picked. The list is made up of "Elysium," "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," "Iron Man 3," "The Lone Ranger," "Oblivion," "Pacific Rim," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "Thor" The Dark World" and "World War Z." Oh, and one more, which overshadows all of the others: "Gravity," which bar some immense shock is certain to take the prize. It's a solid front-runner in cinematography too bu does it have the rest of the technical awards—editing, sound design and sound mixing—sewn up in the same way?

12 Years A Slave
As the critics' lists keep rolling in, the consensus this year is that there's no real consensus. Unlike 2010 where "The Social Network" seemed unstoppable and 2012 when "Zero Dark Thirty" looked like the one to beat, in 2013, at least among critics, it seems to be anyone's game. And again, while critics and Academy voter tastes tend to differ, if there is anything to be gleaned from the wide variety of winners, it's that no one can claim frontrunner status at this point.

While it has pretty much no bearing on the Oscars, winning a few key categories at the European Film Awards does serve to raise the profile of some movies that are in contention. Now, we can certainly bet that more Academy voters will be popping in their screeners of "The Great Beauty."
