The New York Film Critics Circle today awarded No Country For Old Men its award for Best Picture of 2007, the first of four the organization threw Joel and Ethan Coen's way. Others included Best Screenplay, Best Directors and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem. Shocking, I know. It gets crazier: Daniel Day-Lewis claimed Best Actor for There Will Be Blood, Julie Christie won Best Actress for Away From Her, Persepolis snagged Best Animated Film... you get the idea. Hats off to Sidney Lumet and Charles Burnett for claiming a lifetime achievement and "special critics' prize," respectively.
