Georgia critics opt for 'Tree of Life,' Binoche and (twice) Pitt
6 wins for Malick's film, Pitt takes lead and supporting awards
The Georgia Film Critics' Association distinguished themselves from the back last week with a fresh and considered list of nominees -- and their winners, announced earlier today, are no less intriguing. I can't think of another critics' group on the circuit that has fallen quite so hard for "The Tree of Life": Terrence Malick's intimate epic took six awards, including Best Picture and Director, as well as both supporting prizes for Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt. (It wasn't Pitt's only win from the Peach State -- he also took Best Actor for "Moneyball.")
Meanwhile, they forever earned my affection by becoming the first critics 'group to hand Best Actress to Juliette Binoche for "Certified Copy," which also won Best Foreign Language Film. In the relentless grind of paint-by-numbers precursors, even the smallest victories are sweet. Also, it's about bloody time "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" won an ensemble award. Good work, guys. Full list of winners after the jump.
