Awards Weekend

This upcoming weekend there will be two televised Awards shows. And on the movie front, one is a solid indicator for more awards to come, one is a fun show with drunk celebrities.

Sunday is The Golden Globe Awards on NBC. Tonight is the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, airing on VH1.

Trust me, the better indicator of who gets nominated for the top gold statue next month is the BFCA Awards hands down. Sure, the Globes will get more press attention. They’ll have stars give loopy speeches, etc. But in March when you’re taking down your Oscar Pool, I’d look up the BFCA. And if Avatar dominates both, in terms of Best Picture and Director, well I think you’ll see the awards narrative shape up very quickly.

BFCA Nominees here. Their last three Best Picture winners and last six Best Actor winners have correlated with Oscars.
