Road to Oscar: More Kudos Arrive for Departed
Scorsese scores again. The Departed has been declared the year's best film by the Southeastern Film Critics Association, with Marty himself named best director. (Sounds like it's time for Matt to get a sitter and see this flick.) The top acting awards went to Forest Whitaker ( The Last King of Scotland) and Helen Mirren ( The Queen), with Jackie Earle Haley ( Little Children) and Jennifer Hudson ( Dreamgirls) sweeping the supporting slots. Pan's Labyrinth, An Inconvenient Truth and Cars copped foreign-language, doc and animated honors. The Chicago Film Critics group, meanwhile, has unveiled nominations for the year in film, and Babel bested the rest with nine nods, including those for best picture, director and original screenplay. Also vying for best film: The Departed (which also netted nods for Scorsese, Leo, Jack and adapted screenplay), Little Miss Sunshine, The Queen and United 93 (which is currently residing in my sleek li'l Sony Watchman DVD gizmo).
