San Francisco Film Critics Ring In

San Francisco always seems to be my favorite critics group of the year. They always seem to make at least one inspired choice that makes me all warm inside. One of my fondest memories was “Little Children” making an unexpected sweep of 3 major categories in 2006, thus thrusting the film into the awards race.

And this year, they’ve done it again, by giving Best Supporting Actor to John Hawkes for “Winter’s Bone.” So far, it’s my pick for that particular award. Truly an outstanding job by a underrated performer.

Other than that, the continuing legacy that is “The Social Network.”
