New York Film Critics award Best Picture to David O. Russell's American Hustle

Dec. 3, 2013by: Alex Maidy

In one of the first domestic awards of the season, AMERICAN HUSTLE has landed the Best Picture honors at the New York Film Critic Circle Awards. The honor represents a definite leg up for the David O. Russell film heading into contention for the Golden Globes and the Oscars. In addition to the film winning, Jennifer Lawrence also nabbed the Best Supporting Actress honor, marking her second awarded performance in a row for a Russell movie. Russell also nabbed Best Screenplay honors which he shares with co-writer Eric Warren Singer.

AMERICAN HUSTLE is shaping up to be a big contender this year at every awards show as are 12 YEARS A SLAVE and DALLAS BUYERS CLUB which also took home awards for directing and acting (Jared Leto), respectively. Films snubbed at the ceremony include THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and GRAVITY which many considered to be shoe-ins for honors. As more and more groups reveal their picks for the best films of 2013, keep an eye out for who takes home which trophies.

AMERICAN HUSTLE opens in theaters on December 18th.

Really?!?!?! WHY??????

American Hustle was boring and not interesting enough for it's 2 hour plus run length. It's a storytelling mess and a overall disappointment. **1/2 out of ****

I'm really looking forward to this one. I've no doubt it's good, it's really just a matter for me of whether or not it becomes one of my top ten films of the year.

"No doubt it's good". I had that same thought going into this film. It's not good, it's a mess in my strong film opinion.

Now I'm stoked to see this movie. Other than this best picture news, I'm surprised to see Robert Redford as Best Actor. Now I've got to see All is Lost.

American Hustle is my most anticipated film for the rest of the year. Film looks amazing and I hope it dominates at the Oscars this year.

Wolf

Was Wolf Of Wall Street even able to be nominated given it's late release and that it's only been screened for the Screen actors guild?
