Article Excerpt:

To some extent I've lost my taste for covering the critics awards -- at least in depth -- since there are more each year and more which do that coy "nominations first!"thing to try to drum up publicity (it works since the web always needs content...even if the content is the same as the day before as so many of these awards prove!).I'm not trying to be a killjoy --I'm really not!-- but I guess I have anger issues with my fellow critics since they are all so willing to abandon anything they loved during the year once the year end Oscar movies hit.I challenge everyone to go back and read what critics wrote about Michael Fassbender whenPrometheuspremiered and then wonder why they can't be bothered with them now...even when they go so far as to announce nominations ?!?Oscar has a bias against genre performances but unfortunately many of the same media voices who complain about this share the same bias in their own year end honors!Someone will have to explain to me how Alan Arkin inArgoand Robert DeNiro inSilver Linings Playbookfor example are more exemplary examples of Great Film Acting than Fassy inPrometheus. I'd wait but I fear the wait would be longer than the running time of 25 historical epics combined  since who in their right mind would try and justify this verbally even if they votes say differently?

But look at me flying way off track!

So grumpy,me,I apologize!All that said,this year has had abitmore variety in critical winners than some recent years and I do some love reading awards lists.So let's hit four cities and one multi-city stop after the jump and see what they liked most this week...The results are not uninteresting.MORE
