Another awards ceremony, another victory lap for Ben Affleck's 'Argo'! If it doesn't scoop up Best Picture at the Oscars next week, there are going to be a lot of very confused bookies. The latest accolade for the critically acclaimed crowd-pleaser comes courtesy of the Writer's Guild of America, who awarded screenwriter Chris Terrio the trophy for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Is Jessica Chastain a movie star? Probably not. At least not yet. However, this weekend proved that she's well on her way to being one. Headlining the top two films  at the box office in a single weekend is a great start. The Oscar nomination certainly doesn't hurt either.

You really only need to say one thing about the opening weekend of Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty': it made more in three days than 'The Hurt Locker' did in its entire run. If there's anything that's going to alleviate getting snubbed for at the Oscars in the Best Director category, it's that.

As we rush headlong toward the Oscars, every award from every organization and critic group gives us a taste of what may be taking home the gold next month. Like many before it, the National Society of Film Critics has given their top prize to a film that is looking like a shoe-in for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award: Michael Haneke's 'Amour.'

The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning when Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms took the press stage. Predictably, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' all went home happy with their respective noms, but an unexpected surprise was the inclusion of 'Django Unchained' in a total of five categories, including one for Best Picture! But who are the film's main competitors?

In 2008, Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the Oscar for best director with 'The Hurt Locker,' her harrowing depiction of soldiers surviving the war in Iraq. After years of shuffling from genre to genre, it looks like she's finally found her niche. The critical success of 'Zero Dark Thirty' (read our review here) suggests that she may once again be heading for Oscar gold. Since the film doesn't open wide until January, you can whet your appetite for Bigelow's cinematic return with the clip below.

'Zero Dark Thirty' Review

I have no firsthand knowledge of how the CIA works. (You are shocked, I'm sure.) Yet among the things that has me so excited about Kathryn Bigelow's major new achievement, 'Zero Dark Thirty,' is that I come away from it thinking “yeah, that feels right.” So much in this story of “how we got Bin Laden” is a mixture of bullheaded perseverance and dumb luck. We've heard about “the fog of war” but this film shows the fog of intelligence. This look at world's biggest manhunt may be the best manhunt movie ever made.
