The 2007 Critics Consensus Award Nominations


Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood

There will be no country for butterflies in the 2007 Critics Consensus Award nominations! The critics selected from the year's wealth of excellent Oscar offerings their picks for the finest achievements in film, and the cumulative results of their awards and polls brought about seven CCA nominations each for the Coen brothers' return to form No Country for Old Men and the film that reinvigorated Paul Thomas Anderson's career, There Will Be Blood. There's another non-English language title in the Best Picture mix (the third in two years): Julian Schnabel's highly acclaimed The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and a strong showing for David Fincher's Zodiac, kicking off the second act of his cinema career in fine fashion. Great to see a Best Actress mention for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days' Anamaria Marinca, though not so great to see Angelina Jolie's blackface rewarded (how things have changed in the last 11 years!) - indeed, this is an unfortunate example of #CCASoWhite, as only Ensemble Cast and Foreign Language Film recognize any artists of colour. A pretty risible show, that, particularly given that there were more opportunities for recognition than ever before, as the introduction of the Best Editing prize raises the category total to 14, a new high. Award winners are on their way later today, but nominees are all right here, right now:
