Licorice Pizza just won best film and director at the National Board of Review awards.

After West Side Story's ecstatic reviews, I put that as the frontrunner for the best picture race, but this is giving me some hope.


When I lived in Manhattan the NBR newsletter/screening-emails was a great resource for free preview screenings. I recommend seeking that out if you are a student or critic-hopeful living in NYC, I think I was able to sign up via my university.


LP's nominated for 3 Detroit Film Critics Society Award: best original screenplay for Paul, best actress and breakthrough award for Alana. Winners will be announced on Dec 6.





Woah. It would actually be dope to see Emma get that Breakthrough award.


LP is named best screenplay of New York Film Critics Circle


LP seems one of the screenplay front runners now.


Yes, I was thinking that the NBR overperform could lead to a complete shut out by the NYFCC just to shake the things up a bit, but this win gladly confirms the film's strength among the critics' circles.


I feel like everyone is getting onboard with PTA's consolation Screenplay win so even if it doesn't win Best Film prizes elsewhere, they'll probably look to reward it there. I do think the movie will do very well overall at the LA critics in a few weeks, though.

Belfast never felt like a writing winner to me even if it did get Picture, West Side Story and Power of the Dog are Adapted. That leaves only Don't Look Up but Adam McKay has already won for writing and that movie will probably be critically divisive. Only winning if it sweeps which feels excessive at the moment. Check Letterboxd and you'll see verified critics implying how bad it is


There must have been FYC screenings in Atlanta, and the majority of the group attended instead of saying "send us screeners or piss off".


AFI Top 10. Seems like Licorice Pizza is getting a bit more attention than Phantom Thread did at the same point?



Unfair comp, PT was the late player/BP dark horse in a very competitive awards season.
LP is currently the candidate with the highest Metascore and quite possibly a top5-6 BP nominee.

The good news is that MGM started to send digital-screenings links to critics/voters, they're doing nice job so far.


Golden Globes noms are out.

Licorice Pizza is nominated for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) for Alana, Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) for Cooper(!!!), And Best Screenplay for Paul.




Regardless of what you think about the Globes in general, how do you guys read a lack of nomination for directing?
