It looks like Inglourious Basterds is making it's way through all the major award competitions.

Wish the movie luck, because we could get appearances by Michael in some of the biggest award ceremonies.

Supposedly this group is the forerunner for all the big award ceremonies, so congrats to Christoph Waltz, who pretty much looks like he has it in the bag.

Is it me, or do the big conglomerate awards like when someone speaks another language in a movie? Didn't Penelope Cruz win last year for her half English half Spanish deal in a movie last year or year before?

AND, this is only half the list. The rest come out later today. Plus two other 'groups' of some kind of highly regarded and respected critics will be giving out awards today. AFI and New York Film Critics Online.

There are people out there who think Christoph should be nominated as best actor, so that Michael can have a chance at best supporting actor.

Again, it's that whole, who is really the lead and supporting actor. At least next year, Michael will be working on lead acting, instead of supporting.

BFCA announces its nominees
'Basterds,' 'Nine' each score 10 nods
By STUART LEVINE
'Inglourious Basterds'

Weinstein Co. pics "Inglourious Basterds" and "Nine" each scored 10 nominations and will lead the charge at the upcoming Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

Chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., both films were also selected for best picture along with "Avatar," "An Education," "The Hurt Locker," "Invictus," "Precious," "A Serious Man," "Up" and "Up in the Air."

In the lead actor race, noms were handed out to Jeff Bridges for "Crazy Heart," George Clooney for "Up in the Air," Colin Firth for "A Single Man," Morgan Freeman for "Invictus," Viggo Mortensen for "The Road" and Jeremy Renner for "The Hurt Locker."

On the distaff side, lead actresses selected were Emily Blunt in "The Young Victoria," Sandra Bullock in "The Blind Side," Carey Mulligan in "An Education," Saoirse Ronan in "The Lovely Bones," Gabourey Sidibe in "Precious" and Meryl Streep in "Julie & Julia."

Directors tabbed were Kathryn Bigelow for "The Hurt Locker," James Cameron for "Avatar," Lee Daniels for "Precious," Clint Eastwood for "Invictus," Jason Reitman for "Up in the Air" and Quentin Tarantino for "Inglourious Basterds."

The org historically selects six noms for many of the major categories.

Following the 10 noms each for "Inglorious Basterds" and "Nine," "Avatar" — Cameron’s $300-plus million sci-fi epic from 20th Century Fox that opens Friday — landed nine noms.

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards was, so far, the best kudo showing for Rob Marshall’s "Nine," which failed to make the American Film Institute top 10 list announced Sunday. Also from the film, Marion Cotillard was nominated for supporting actress, even though the Weinstein Co. has been pushing her in the lead category for the Oscar race. Academy Award voters are allowed to choose whatever category they think is most appropriate.

Sunday was a good day for "The Hurt Locker," which also picked up top pic prizes from the Los Angeles and Boston film critics. Bigelow was selected as best helmer by both groups as well.

The BFCA have revamped this year’s awards show. Org changed the name of its kudocast to the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and moved the venue from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium to the Hollywood Palladium. In addition, they added eight categories to make it more similar to the Oscars.

Show, hosted by Kristin Chenoweth, airs at 9 p.m. Jan. 15 and is currently in the final year of a pact with VH1. Cabler and sister net MTV simulcast red carpet coverage prior to the telecast.

Last year the BFCA was in line with the Oscars as both tabbed "Slumdog Millionaire" as top pic, as well director Danny Boyle and writer Simon Beaufoy.

BFCA is made up of 235 members representing TV, radio and online.

Best Supporting Actor of 2009
1. Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds)


2. Peter Capaldi (In the Loop)


3. Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen)


They say, a hero is only as good as his villain. Well, then we’ve seen some damn good heroes. For the third year in a row, my pick for best supporting actor goes to the bad guy. Javier Bardem’s stone-cold Anton Chigurh, Heath Ledger’s maniacal Joker, and now we have Christoph Waltz’s Col. Hans Landa. Waltz manages to be charming and chilling at the same time. Tarantino has emphatically stated that if he didn’t find the right actor, Inglourious Basterds would have never happened. Waltz gave QT his film back and we thank him for it.

Peter Capaldi’s ill-tempered, foul-mouthed Malcolm Tucker originally appeared in the BBC series The Thick of It. He reprises that role in the spin-off In the Loop, spewing venom at any unlucky sod within earshot. Who would have thought that Kelly from Bad News Bears would grow up to become such a ruthless badass? Jackie Earle Haley absolutely nails the role of the disturbed vigilante, Rorschach.

Honorable Mentions: Alfred Molina (An Education), Karl Urban (Star Trek), Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), Robert Duvall (Crazy Heart, The Road), Woody Harrelson (The Messenger)

We're pretty sure that Christoph is going to win. Michael wasn't nominated for anything, and may not even be there, although I don't know what he'd be doing, since he's not up for anything until April after filming in Dublin this month. Don't know if the Academy will ask Michael to present anything. We'll have to see.

Bummed that Michael's not nominated for anything this year, but kind of relieved too. Don't know if I'll watch only because I'm not fond of Avatar, and think it might win most of the awards...if it wasn't in the running, Basterds could have won a lot more.

Hopefully when Jane Eyre and The Talking Cure come out, there will be more awards for Michael.

2010 Calvin Awards: Best Cast
February 9, 2010
When the world finds out their political affiliation, all of their careers are over.

This year, our runaway winners for Best Cast are the actors in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, which relies heavily on its ensemble cast to both drive the action and to believably perform the dialogue-heavy screenplay. Just consider the fact that some of the character names in the film are instantly memorable – Lt. Aldo Raine, Col. Hans Landa, The Bear Jew, Hugo Stiglitz and Bridget von Hammersmark. Without the solid work from Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Eli Roth, Til Schweiger and Diane Kruger, none of that would be possible. And that doesn't even account for additional great acting turns from Melanie Laurent, Daniel Bruhl, Michael Fassbender and Martin Wuttke. Both the Basterds and the Nazis were fully brought to life on the big screen, and even though we know who the good guys are, we're repulsed by their actions, too. Yet, we still root for them, and it's a credit to the cast that we do.

Second place goes to the gang from The Hangover, as they completely delivered on the promise that a great premise offered. The main trio of Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms kept us cracking up throughout the movie, while Justin Bartha, Heather Graham, Mike Epps and yes, Mike Tyson all added their own personalities to the proceedings. With Cooper playing a guy who's more complex than he seems, Galifianakis portraying a guy who we ought to hate but don't and Helms filling in as the every-dude, there was someone any audience member could relate to. Bring on the sequel!

Next up is The Hurt Locker in third place, as key performances from Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty put us in the center of action in Iraq. We suffer with them and we boggle at the audacity of Renner's Sergeant William James as he eagerly risks his life as well as that of his team. There are also appearances in the film by Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes and David Morse, and I can promise you that there is nothing expected or ordinary about any of them.

It's a little tougher for a small cast to break through in this category, but Up in the Air does so nonetheless. George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick are simply marvelous in the film, and deserve all the accolades they are receiving. Clooney has never been so vulnerable, Farmiga feels like someone who might be a friend, co-worker or neighbor, and Kendrick proves that the horrible acting in the Twilight series might not be a function of the talent involved in the films. Jason Bateman co-stars as a dorky, waffling boss, and director Jason Reitman also used a variety of people who had actually lost their jobs to play people about to be fired. It makes for a powerful film that feels somehow both timeless and relevant to current events.

Slotting in a fifth place is a movie with a massive cast that had a heavy-duty task on its hands. Most of the actors in Star Trek had to reprise roles that are already considered practically archetypal, and they were happily more than up to the challenge. Chris Pine transformed James T. Kirk to a new man of action for our time, while Zachary Quinto effortlessly slipped into the skin of Spock. Karl Urban might have been the best of all in the film as the wisecracking Dr. McCoy, and John Cho and Anton Yelchin breathed new life into Chekov and Sulu. Zoe Saldana, who had a banner year, made Uhura smart and vulnerable at the same time, while BOP fave Simon Pegg became Scotty. Eric Bana was a solid villain, and Leonard Nimoy even appeared as Spock Prime (from a different timeline). What a credit to all these performers that Trekkers and non-fans alike were thrilled with the results.

Sixth and seventh go to very, very different movies in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Precious has a strong ensemble cast that surprises with the depth of emotion they portray. Newcomer Gabourey Sidibe has turned heads with her portrayal of the title character, and people are wondering where the Mo'Nique in this movie came from (certainly not Soul Plane!). Mariah Carey, Paula Patton and even Lenny Kravitz are all driving forces behind the film's success. Harry Potter 6 has an even bigger cast to keep all its moving parts flowing, with series stalwarts Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton really growing into their roles. Michael Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Robbie Coltrane continue their solid work, and Jim Broadbent as Slughorn and Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood are simply marvelous. Special notice should also go to Jessie Cave, who is hilarious as Lavender Brown.

We close out the top ten with State of Play, In the Loop and Zombieland. For State of Play, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck play the key characters, but the support they receive from Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn, Jason Bateman (again!) and Jeff Daniels brings the movie to something several notches above standard thriller fare. There are no true "lead performers" in In the Loop, so the sum of its parts had to be pretty spectacular. Led by a phenomenal turn by Peter Capaldi, the movie also has solid acting from Tom Hollander, Gina McKee, James Gandolfini, Chris Addison, Anna Chlumsky, Mimi Kennedy, David Rasche and Paul Higgins. Finally, Zombieland leaves us lost in admiration for the work of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin (not to mention the appearance by a certain actor we won't spoil).

Casts who just missed the top ten include Fantastic Mr. Fox, Away We Go, Avatar, Funny People and the Brothers Bloom. (Kim Hollis/BOP)

Tarantino’s ‘Basterds’: An Oscar Surprise Thanks to SAG Award?
By: Roger Friedman // Thursday February 18, 2010

Tarantinos Basterds: An Oscar Surprise Thanks to SAG Award? Could Quentin Tarantino’s self described “masterpiece” be the upset winner at the Academy Awards?

Suddenly, the “Inglourious Basterds” are surfing a tidal wave to the March 7 ceremonies at the Kodak Theater.

“Basterds” won the SAG Award for best ensemble cast. Screen Actors Guild voters make up the majority of the Academy. “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Crash,” “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King,” Chicago” and “No Country for Old Men” all went from the SAG Award to the Oscar for best picture. Think back to when “Crash” beat “Brokeback Mountain.” SAG has proven to be a an accurate weather vane.

I told you this might happen. Voters tire of front runners. “Avatar” — despite its technological advances — is not warmly received by Academy members. “The Hurt Locker” has been out there a long time and has many admirers (myself included).
More awards coverage

But “Basterds” seems to be a guilty pleasure, especially among Academy voters. It has two things pulling it forward, also: Tarantino, who’s never won an Oscar but has rabid fans. And Christoph Waltz, who’s a cinch to win best supporting actor for his portrayal of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Waltz is Austrian, but what makes his whole Cinderella story so amazing is that his children are Jewish thanks to his first marriage. His son is studying to be a rabbi. Talk about poetic justice!

There seems to be no question that Kathryn Bigelow and “The Hurt Locker” are on a roll. But there’s also an issue that few people have seen the Iraq war movie. Whereas “Basterds” took in over $120 million at the boxoffice. It’s also a war fable, with inspired madness from a terrific cast including Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger and Michael Fassbender.

One sign of things to come: that lunch last week in Hollywood. Warren Beatty, Ron Howard, and other big names turned out to support Tarantino.There were a lot of places those people might have broken bread that day, but they’re voters, and they wanted to be seen there. I’m just sayin’…

Muriel Award: Best Ensemble

Inglourious Basterds [123/18]

“If we look to Merriam Webster for a definition of “ensemble,” we discover that the primary meaning is that of “a group producing a single effect” and that the term is also defined as “a group of supporting players, singers, or dancers.” When one thinks of the ensemble cast that has won so much acclaim, including a Screen Actors Guild award for Best Ensemble Cast, for Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, one could hardly be faulted for conjuring images of Brad Pitt as the leathery Lt. Aldo “the Apache” Raine, or Christoph Waltz as the intellectually cunning and fatally charming Col. Hans Landa, “the Jew Hunter,” or Melanie Laurent as Shoshanna Dreyfus a.k.a. Emmanuelle Mimeux, driven by a lust for revenge on the biggest screen of all, or Diane Kruger as Bridget von Hammersmark, convinced that her luscious persona as a famous German actress can get her in and out of the most dangerous scenarios, or even Eli Roth as Donny “the Bear Jew” Donowitz, going yard on Nazi craniums all across the European theater of war.

For as much ink as has been spilled about Tarantino’s expansively outrageous vision of World War II and Jewish revenge and the director’s increasingly expressive grasp of his medium, try to imagine the cumulative effect of the movie had it not begun by being so expertly cast. The five actors mentioned above, in that they have effectively become the face of Inglourious Basterds (when their director steps out of the spotlight himself, of course), are generally what is thought of when words of praise regarding that great ensemble cast come flowing out of the pens and off of the keyboards of writers during this award season. And I would never contest the accuracy or the effusiveness of that praise; it is well deserved (yes, even by Eli Roth).

But I don’t think that praise often goes far enough. That is, as important as Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz and Melanie Laurent are to the emotional landscape of Basterds, the movie is rightly teeming with actors in smaller parts who, were their impression not just as precisely pitch-perfect and of a piece with the overriding inspiration drawn from Tarantino’s writing, the movie could have fatally faltered in any number of individual moments right up through its literally inflammatory ending. A major part of the glory of Inglourious Basterds is found in the absolute rightness of everyone in the cast, down to the slightest and most incremental of roles.

And so, with that in mind, as we salute the ensemble cast of Inglorious Basterds, I’d like to just take a moment to remember that the real ensemble extends far beyond those five or so well-known faces so richly caricatured in the painting that makes up the movie’s evocative one-sheet art. When we think of this movie’s honored and honorable cast, we shouldn’t forget Denis Menochet as LaPadite, his weary, piercing eyes brimming with rage and defeat as he sits across the table from Landa, matching Waltz’s brilliant linguistic onslaught with the most pregnant of pauses and muted responses, knowing that it is only a matter of time before he’ll be able to protect the family under his feet no longer; Samm Levine as the trigger-happy Pfc. Herschberg, Omar Doom as Pfc. Ulmer, none too convincing in Italian, and B.J. Novak as Pfc. Utivich, taking in Raine’s climactic chess moves against Landa with wide-eyed bemusement; Gedeon Burkhard’s implacable cool as Wilhelm Wicki, the Basterd’s German translator; the stoic squint that means death coming from Til Schweiger’s Hugo Stiglitz; the way that Richard Sammel’s Sgt. Rachtmann turns his pronunciation of “HOOgo SchTIGleetz” into a reptilian vocal sneer, and the mixture of humanity and the steely reserve of arrogant military righteousness in his eyes as he faces the Bear Jew for the first and last time.

There’s also Daniel Bruhl as Pvt. Frederick Zoller, at once caught up in his newfound celebrity and eventually slightly disgusted at the slaughter that has become his memoriam, even as his twisted entitlement leads him to an unexpected fate in the projection booth of Le Gamaar, the sounds of his own death masked by the sniper fire on the soundtrack of Nation’s Pride; the seedy, sentimental hubris of Sebastian Groth’s Josef Goebbels, comingling David O. Selznick and Don Knotts with unexpected subtlety, and brought to tears by Hitler’s rave review; Julie Dreyfus, sublimely beautiful and funny as Goebbels’ imperious multi-lingual interpreter, her air of mysterious, haughty elegance ruptured by a shock cut to a hilariously undignified rear attack by the entirely unworthy Minister of Propaganda; August Diehl, ice in his veins as Major Hellstrom, whose deadened eyes mask his intentions brilliantly in every scene, and whose observation of a gesture inconsistent with German behavior in the brilliantly elongated pub sequence assures the deaths of his opponents, and his own; an almost unrecognizable Rod Taylor, wheezing life into Winston Churchill in a single brief scene; Mike Myers wryly channeling Alan Napier and every other suave British military strategist in the movies, and never quite tipping with delight into sheer caricature in the process, as Colonel Ed Fenech.

Perhaps finest of all is Michael Fassbender as Colonel Archie Hicox, former film critic and current British military infiltrator whose specific knowledge of the German film industry has put him in a unique position to carry out one of two unknowingly intersecting plots against the Nazi high command. Fassbender looks, feels and sounds as if he might have leapt straight out of a Powell-Pressburger creation like The Small Back Room or The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, so absolutely spot-on is his entire dashing, slightly arrogant presence and repose as Hicox.
One hopes that somewhere in that fertile field of Basterds back stories fermenting in Tarantino’s file cabinet is one devoted entirely to the adventures of this sly, ultimately doomed master of film history and the occasional bit of military espionage. Any director would kill for such a cast as this; and with this ensemble, it is Inglourious Basterds that most certainly kills.” - Dennis Cozzalio

Hey, Oscar: Inglourious Basterds Is More Movie Than Any Other Movie This Year
By Katey Rich: 2010-02-25 12:59:20

Everyone has the thing that made them first fall in love with Inglourious Basterds-- the milk, the giant pipe, the tilt pan underneath the floorboards-- but for me it all started with the fonts. The opening credits of Quentin Tarantino's gonzo epic boast no fewer than five fonts, from the hand-scrawled and misspelled titles to the Godfather-esque serif for the "guest stars." There no reason for all the changing fonts, no themes explored or artistic expression. It's just something Quentin Tarantino thought was cool.

But as it turns out, all that inconsistency and artistic flourish was a perfect introduction the jangly, spastic energy of Inglourious Basterds, a movie so excited about what it contains that it can't decide how it wants to present itself. Sometimes Samuel L. Jackson is narrating the backstory of a particularly violent character, and sometimes the camera lingers on Hans Landa's immobile face. Sometimes David Bowie's theme from Cat People is the perfect introduction to a movie night during World War II, and sometimes the specific details of where to climb mountains near Paris are enough to get a person killed. Sometimes you feel bad for the young Nazi who wants to get back home to see his son. Sometimes it's just really fun to see Hitler shot in the face.

In other words, Inglourious Basterds is all over the place, like a puppy running in circles because he can't decide whose face to lick first. But because Quentin Tarantino is a genius at sharing his enthusiasms with his audience, the movie's logical gaps and tonal shifts are what make it brilliant instead of infuriating. More than just keeping you guessing, Inglourious Basterds constant;u demands that you re-ground yourself within its wild world, go back to rooting for the Nazi who just strangled the starlet, keep up with the complicated machinations of Operation Kino, figure out where Hans Landa was keeping that pipe anyway. Every detail provides a new opportunity to be mystified and amazed.

It's not like the movie just turned out that way, either. From the moment he divided the film into five chapters Tarantino knew he was making something sprawling and strange, and the very decision to include a caricature like Aldo Raine in the same story as Shosanna Dreyfuss marked a leap away from the traditional. Most movies that feel this crazy and loose get that way unintentionally-- a scene that felt right on the set is jarring in the edit, or one performance fits horribly when paired with another. But Tarantino crafted each of his characters and his scenes with exquisite detail, to the point that each of the chapters could be seen separately and stand on their own. The pub scene is nothing like the introduction of the Basterds is nothing like Shosanna and Frederick Zoller's tense lunch together; all three could come out of different films entirely. But when put together, they're magic.

From the cinematography to the performances to the strudel, Inglourious Basterds is completely stuffed with potential favorites. Sure Christoph Waltz is the actor getting the most attention-- and deservedly so-- but think back to the look on Daniel Bruhl's face when he forces Shosanna back into the projection room, or the way Michael Fassbender says "David O. Selznick," or even Brad Pitt's curled lip. Everyone, in every story, has their moments, from Monsieur LaPadite's shocked compliance with Landa's orders to Marcel's obedient flick of the match and "Oui, Shosanna." These moments reveal the order in the chaos; no movie as disorganized as Inglourious Basterds appears to be on the surface could treat its characters so well.

We give the Oscar for Best Picture for a different reason each year, from the cultural phenomena that simply demand recognition (Titanic, Slumdog Millionaire) to the difficult works of art that somehow struck a chord (No Country for Old Men, Schindler's List). But Inglourious Basterds is the Best Picture in the broadest sense, the movie that contains the most movie of any among the 10. For all its quirks and inconsistencies, it contains all the things movies do best, and specifically American movies. The war film, the revenge thriller, the wartime love story-- all have won Best Picture in the past. Now's the chance to reward a movie that's all of those things and more.
