Oh Canada!

Sarah Polley’s Away From Her was awarded last night at the New York Film Critics Circle last night for Best First Film and her leading lady Julie Christie received the Best Actress honour, positioning her well for an Oscar nomination to be announced 2 weeks from now.

The Critics’ Choice Awards go ahead tonight… Ms Christie has a very, very good shot at making it two for two. But the race is wide open this year, especially compared to last, when Helen Mirren rolled over everyone. And much as I adored Christie’s performance, my heart belongs to Marion Cotillard.

Keep you posted…
