Stop the presses: ‘Avatar’ sweeps VES

Posted by · 9:50 pm · February 28th, 2010

ZOMG!  Well, actually, it wasn’t a clean sweep, as “District 9” managed to win in the compositing category (one of many that saw “Avatar” as a multiple nominee).  But it was unsurprisingly dominated by Cameron and company throughout, with six awards going to the blockbuster.  Go to The Circuit to see the damage.

(Also, while I’m at it, any word out there on the International Film Music Critics Association’s list of winners, which was supposed to have been announced Friday?  That’s literally the last precursor left standing at the moment.)

    Saw that. Bizarre. Trying to one-“up” Pixar, I imagine.

    The IFMCA had to delay the announcement of our results until this afternoon. We apologize for neglecting to update the website with the new date. Look for our list of winners later today. :)

    I laughed because Kris wrote “ZOMG.” I’m easily amused.
