For the completists

Posted by · 8:02 am · January 11th, 2010

Better late than never. A reader emailed me to remind us that we never mentioned the winners of the Satellite Awards, which got lost in our holiday hiatus last month. Just in case you’ve been on tenterhooks, they’re after the cut — with “The Hurt Locker” again dominating, and a unique choice for Best Actress.

WEEKLY WRAP: ‘Lovely Bones’ bows, ‘New Moon’ reigns

‘Nine’ leads Golden Satellites with 11 nods

Posted by · 6:59 am · November 29th, 2009

(UPDATE: Full list of categories and special awards added, including a random Best Ensemble prize for “Nine.” Also, a pointless Ten Best Films of 2009 list that leaves out some of their very own Best Picture nominees. Don’t even try to make sense of it. Thanks to Ziyad for the info.) It isn’t really worth […]

Sorry it’s a day late, but here’s the week that was. Awards and nominations left, right and centre — the season is officially under way, folks: • “Slumdog Millionaire” emerged as a bona fide frontrunner, taking Best Picture at the season kickoff, the National Board of Review awards … • … only days after taking […]

Baffling Golden Satellite noms unveiled

Posted by · 4:42 pm · November 30th, 2008

I’ve never been sure what purpose the Golden Satellite Awards serve.
