See The Gambler early and free

Early buzz on The Gambler has some Oscar hopes tied to it, but the film didn't get the push and so the nominations didn't really come. That doesn't mean that the film will be bad, though. In fact it looks pretty damn ste...

Washington Area Film Critics Association announces award winners photo
Washington Area Film Critics Association announces award winners
by Matthew Razak

The Washington Area Film Critics Association, of which I am a card carrying member, has delivered it's award winners once again this year. I voted of course and I think this year is one of the first where I've overwhelming agreed with the majority of wins. Boyhood grabbed best picture and best director, which is definitely what should. Even if you hated the movie for some random reason it was a triumph in film making and deserves it for that. As you can expect Richard Linklater winning best director was a given as well.

Aside from that J.K. Simmons as best support actor for Whiplash is a fantastic win as well as is Michael Keaton in Birdman, though David Oyelowo's performance in Selma was truly inspirational. I do disagree with Juliane Moore in Still Alice pull in best actress as I thought Rosamund Pike should have grabbed that for Gone Girl. Oh, well the awards can't always be right like I am. 

See the full winners and nominees below and check out all the nominees here.
