It’s that time of year again! That wonderful 3 month period where the “best” films of the last 12 months are released in a condensed amount of time, and nominations/wins for the best are declared by countless groups from all over the globe. The New York Film Critics Circle was the first prominent group of the bunch, and the most surprising win was bestowed upon Rachel Weisz for her leading performance in Deep Blue Sea. Now color me surprised as I wasn’t expecting Weisz to be a contender for anything this year–she only won because Jennifer Lawrence, Emmanuelle Riva, and Jessica Chastain split the votes–and regardless I predict that she probably won’t win any other major award from here on out, but could she snag that tricky 5th nominee slot? I didn’t pay much attention when she got a spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s Actress Roundtable, and again when she got a mention by Ralph Fiennes on Variety’s Actors on Actors…so perhaps I’m underestimating her?
