North Texas Film Critics Association picks the best of 2007
Juno takes home the totally non-existent best picture statuette.
The announcement that everyone has been waiting for (and by "everyone," I mean me and a couple-dozen other members) has finally been made: the results of the North Texas Film Critics Association voting for the best film accomplishments of 2007 are in.
Taking home the - um - unnamed, purely imaginary trophy for best picture is Juno, which should please my PegNews associate Alex but which comes as a bit of a surprise to me because I voted for No Country for Old Men - twice. (Oops - hope the NTFCA folks aren't reading this...)
Other big winners:
Tying for best director are the Coen brothers (for No Country) and Jason Reitman (for Juno)
Best actor honors go to Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood
Best acress: Ellen Page for Juno (wow, I'm starting to wish I'd actually seen this one...)
Best supporting actor (no surprise here) goes to Javier Bardem (No Country again)
Best supporting actress honors belong to Tilda Swinton (for Michael Clayton)
Best animated film: Ratatouille
Best foreign language film: The Kite Runner
Best cinematography voting resulted in another tie, this time between No Country and Atonement
Last but not least (unless you're referring to the film seen by the least number of people): the best documentary award goes to The King of Kong: A Fistfull of Quarters.
