Marion Cotillard British Awards La Vie en Rose

Marion Cotillard & Daniel Day-Lewis among British award winners

2008 London Film Critics’ Circle Award nominations: Dec. 14. 2008 London Film Critics’ Circle Award winners: Grosvenor House Hotel on Feb. 8.

Curiously, Maggie Gyllenhaal was included on the roster. About a year ago, her Sherrybaby performance was mostly bypassed during awards season, though, admittedly, she was nominated for a Best Actress - Drama Golden Globe, and was up for a Satellite Award in the same category (she lost to Helen Mirren for The Queen). Additionally, Gyllenhaal was Best Actress at two European film festivals, Karlovy Vary and Stockholm.

Joel and Ethan Coen Top Writers Guild Awards

2008 WGA Award television and radio nominations: Dec. 12. 2008 WGA Award motion picture nominations: Jan. 10. Winners: Feb. 9.

As expected, Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody’s successful comedy about a pregnant 15-year-old girl looking for the ideal parents for her upcoming child won the WGA Award for best original screenplay. The awards ceremony on the West Coast was canceled due to the – to date – ongoing strike. On the East Coast, veteran screenwriter Walter Bernstein received the Evelyn F. Burkey Award at an “informal ceremony” at the Hudson Theatre. The recipients of the WGA’s other honorary awards will be feted at a ceremony later in the year.

2008 Evening Standard (British film/talent) award winners: Feb. 4.

Note: The Best Comedy category was replaced this year by Best Score, as the jury found that British film music fared better than British film humor in 2007.

Atonement led the Evening Standard Awards field with 7 nominations. The romantic melodrama starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy is also up for a 7 2008 Academy Awards, and it was voted best dramatic film of the year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. However…

…director Anton Corbijn and screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh’s film version of Deborah Curtis’ autobiography Touching from a Distance – the film focuses on her late husband, Joy Division’s singer Ian Curtis (played by Sam Riley, above) – ended up as the best picture and best screenplay winner. Strangely, Control fared poorly among American award-giving groups.

2008 Golden Laurel feature-film and long-form TV nominations: January 14, 2008. Television series nominations: Nov. 15. Winners: Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Feb. 2.

The two biggest surprises among the PGA’s 2008 Golden Laurels was the presence of Julian Schnabel’s French-language The Diving Bell and the Butterfly among the feature film nominees and the absence of Charles Ferguson’s widely praised Iraq War documentary No End in Sight in the documentary shortlist. Also missing from the PGA feature-film list are Into the Wild, and Golden Globe winners Sweeney Todd and Atonement. The eventual winner was No Country for Old Men (above).
