Avatar The Hurt Locker awards

Leave it to web-savvy members of New York Film Critics Online to be more appreciative of the high-tech greatness of "Avatar" than their snobbish counterparts belonging to the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. The online Gotham gang voted "Avatar" best picture (insert "hooray" here), while proclaiming Jeff Bridges ("Crazy Heart") best actor, Meryl Streep ("Julie & Julia") best actress, Christoph Waltz ("Inglourious Basterds") supporting actor and Mo'Nique ("Precious") supporting actress. See the group's full list of winners here.

Voters within the Alliance of Women Film Journalists unveiled similar winners today, agreeing on Bridges, Waltz and Mo'Nique, but they preferred "The Hurt Locker" for best picture and Carey Mulligan ("An Education) on the lead actress throne. See full list of honorees here.


AFI Top 10 movie list includes snubs -- as usual (Hey, where's 'Avatar'?)
