NYFCO, Boston & DC Film Critics Winners

It's becoming a showdown between two films so far this awards season, at least in terms of critics awards. That would be No Country for Old Men vs. There Will Be Blood. The Coen's picked up two more wins today from the Boston and Washington DC area critics, while PT Anderson continues to shock with his second big win of the day from the online New York Critics, following the bomb he dropped on the LA Critics earlier today. Look for one of these two to take the NYFCC tomorrow as well. And I think it is safe to say that Cate Blanchett is no longer the forerunner for Supporting Actress (although she did pick up one award today), as Amy Ryan continues to plow through just about everyone. Complete lists courtesy of Awards Daily.
