SOME AWARDS FOR OLD MEN: Such might be an appropriate headline for the announcement that the National Board of Review has kicked off the year-end awards season by naming No Country For Old Men best picture. They spread the love around though, giving Tim Burton best director for Sweeney Todd, George Clooney best actor for Michael Clayton, Julie Christie best actress for Away From Her, Casey Affleck best supporting actor for Assassination of Jesse James By The Excessively Long Title, and Amy Ryan best supporting actress for Gone Baby Gone. Joining No Country, Sweeney, Jesse James, and Michael Clayton on the overall top ten list were Atonement, The Bourne Ultimatium, The Bucket List (seriously?), Into the Wild, Juno, The Kite Runner, and Lars And The Real Girl. (A fuller list, including screenplay, breakthrough performance, and directorial debut awards, is here.)
