'Village Voice' Critics' Best Actress runner-up: Nina Hoss in 'Phoenix' trailed Charlotte Rampling in '45 Years.' 'Village Voice' Best of 2015: Offbeat picks include Géza Röhrig, runner-up Nina Hoss The Best of 2015 choices of the Village Voice film critics will not influence the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, or the SAG Awards. No matter. If you're interested in movies to watch or performances to check out, then you should pay close attention to those smaller critics' lists.

Online Film Critics: Rooney Mara (Absurdly?) 'Supporting Actress,' Kristen Stewart In

Online Film Critics Awards: Rooney Mara (pictured with Cate Blanchett) strangely listed in the Best Supporting Actress category for 'Carol.'
