The Hurt Locker Wins NY Film Critics

This is going to be a short post as I'm in the middle of studying for finals. The Hurt Locker has done it again. Is it the frontrunner? Not sure yet. I'm a bit skeptical on a film about the Iraq war being named Best Picture at the Oscars. This could be a case of a film being a critic's darling, then failing at the Oscars. Nothing wrong with that. I think it's just important not to be too high on The Hurt Locker's two big wins. It's still early.

Oh, and Avatar won the NY Online Film Critics. That was surprising. I really think this film will be nominated for Best Picture.

Anyway, here's the list of the major winner for the NYFCC.
