LA, Boston, NYC, DC Critics Awards
Four of the biggest film critics associations across the States have announced their Best of 2007 film awards with Paul Thomas Anderson's oil period drama "There Will Be Blood" and the Coen brothers violent modern western "No Country for Old Men" garnering the most wins.

If these wins are anything to go by, both films will be key contenders for Best Picture and Director Oscars. Best Actor will come down to a George Clooney vs. Daniel Day Lewis fight whilst Best Actress will be Julie Christie vs. Marion Cotillard.

Javier Bardem and Amy Ryan on the other hand seem to have little challenge for supporting nods, whilst "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," "Sicko" and "Ratatouille" seem very likely to walk away with foreign, documentary and animated nods respectively.

in any case here's the full list:
