What does that have to do with this years Oscar nominations though?
Amy Adams win Chicago; Anne Hathaway wins Indiana Film Journalist and Satellite. To me, despite the SAG snub, Adams is 3rd, after Hathaway and Field.
Because she won the Chicago film critics? What?
Adams won more precursors than Helen Hunt. Even though these critics group barely have got to do it with the Oscars, I've got the feeling that if is Kidman and Streep that they want to nominate, they could easily replace both Hunt and Adams.
Kind of like everyone saying McCon was 2nd to Jones after his NYFCC win?
Adams was way better in The Fighter. But Leo should've won for Frozen River, imo.
Dame Leo needs to hit the road
I was being sarcastic.
We go through this year in and year out. At this point in the season, critics wins make very little difference (perhaps none at all?). The season is already oversaturated. Critics awards only truly matter at the very beginning of the season, when they can shape buzz. Once the televised awards, namely the SAG and GG, chime in, it's basically done. We already know critics like Adams in The Master, but the industry went for Kidman and Smith. Now, SAG can be wrong, but I just don't think these later critics awards tell us much.
