You know what's a really good idea? Drawing out your award winners on Twitter all day. In what seems like the final act in a disastrous public relations year for the New York Film Critics Circle, they made the ridiculous decision to tweet their winners, one-by-one, as they vote today, turning the simple act of compiling a press release into a drawn-out social media exercise by people who clearly don't understand how to use it (case in point: Roger Friedman tweeted out the Best Director win before NYFCC could). Couple that with new president John Anderson's embarrassing whining that Warner Bros. wouldn't screen "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close" in order to meet their arbitrary and way too early voting date (so they can be first out, and consequently first forgotten), which they had to move anyway for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," and you have a 2011 the members are likely glad is over. Politics and infighting aside, the group, having got their Fincher on last night, finally met to pick their winners, and while their standing has certainly been diminished by recent controversies (there goes our invite), the results are always a strong barometer for Oscar.

With the New York Film Critics Circle set to announce their award winners tomorrow morning over Twitter (guys, way to make it less meaningless, how about an actual webpage?) and the Gotham Independent Film Awards just wrapped, the fall awards season has officially kicked off. And already, we've got some surprises.

It has been a good year to be a Terrence Malick fan. Not only did the director finally deliver is long-awaited "The Tree Of Life," he's simply never been busier with four projects currently in the works: the Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams-led, untitled romance; "Lawless" with Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennet; "Knight Of Cups" with Bale, Blanchett and Isabel Lucas; and the documentary "The Voyage Of Time." And while we patiently wait for these films to arrive whenever Malick decides they are done, it looks like we'll have something to tide us over.

Well folks, the first batch of nominees this awards season have been revealed, with the Gotham Independent Film Award nominations landing this morning, giving an early peek at what will likely be some strong contenders down the line. Bear in mind, the Gotham Awards have little bearing on the eventual Oscar nods with only last year's Best Feature winner "Winter's Bone" factoring into the proceedings at the Kodak Theater. However, it does represent a good chunk of what you might see at the Independent Spirit Awards later in the year and if anything, these nominations confirm that Fox Searchlight is going to have another banner year on the statue circuit.

A couple of weeks ago when footage emerged of Terrence Malick shooting his new mysterious project with Christian Bale, devoted followers of the director were blown away to see current actual video of the notoriously private man working on a very public movie set. It was certainly a very rare sneak behind the scenes for a director who generally prefers to work, not necessarily off the radar, but with his own core of players without the attention of the outside world filtering in.

Terrence Malick, whose output seems to be exponentially increasing, has no fewer than three projects actively on his docket: cosmic documentary "Voyage of Time;" an untitled Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams drama rumored to be called "The Burial;" and a third project, starring Christian Bale, which should begin production in the summer of 2012. The Bale film just became a lot more concrete, as relative unknown Haley Bennett has been cast as the female lead, according to Variety.

We imagine if you're a reader of this site you've probably already seen Terrence Malick's spiritual and experimental family drama, "The Tree Of Life," starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and on-the-rise newcomer Jessica Chastain -- who is practically invading theaters this year with appearances in "The Help," "The Debt," and later this year, "The Texas Killing Fields" -- but in case you haven't and or just want to own it, the DVD and Blu-Ray combo pack is now scheduled for release on October 11th.
