Awards Watch


By Norah Lawlor

The fall film festival circuit kicks off with the 38th annual Toronto International Film Festival this September 5, 2013 – September 15, 2013; I sat down with the leading New York film critics to get a clearer picture of the upcoming awards season’s major contenders. From period dramas to biopics, sci-fi flicks and dark comedies, if buzz is any indication, these films should top your early awards season watch list as you gear up for the 71st Annual Golden Globe® Awards on Sunday, January 12, 2014, and the 86th Academy Awards on March 2, 2014.
