'Her' movie tops 2013 San Diego Film Critics Awards (Joaquin Phoenix in 'Her') The San Diego Film Critics Society has released its list of 2013 nominees and winners. The nominations themselves were quite eclectic, ranging from Best Actress nominee Brie Larson for Short Term 12 to Best Film nominee Gravity. The list of winners, however, tended to be more mainstream. For instance, Warner Bros.' Spike Jonze-directed Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls in love with a Scarlett Johansson-voiced computer, was chosen as the Best Film of 2013, in addition to receiving honors for Best Original Screenplay (also Spike Jonze) and Best Score (Arcade Fire).

2013 Oscar predictions Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Daniel Day-Lewis Joaquin Phoenix and Daniel Day-Lewis look like the two shoo-ins for the 2013 Best Actor Oscar at this stage. Phoenix's nod will be for Paul Thomas Anderson's critically acclaimed but commercially disappointing The Master; Day-Lewis' will be for Steven Spielberg's generally well-received Lincoln, in which the two-time Oscar winner plays the title role. (Image: Joaquin Phoenix The Master.) 2013 Oscar predictions Best Actor: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Anthony Hopkins, and ... Who else for the 2013 Best Actor Oscar shortlist? How about veteran Jean-Louis Trintignant for Michael Haneke's Palme d'Or winner and inevitable Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee Amour? Trintignant, 82 next December 11, has never been nominated for an Academy Award and Amour is likely to be his very last film. Anthony Hopkins for Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock.
