For Your Consideration

The Awards season is in full swing starting this past Monday (Dec. 3) when the New York Film Critics Circle came out with their winners for the year.  It was then followed on Dec. 5 by the National Board Review Awards.  Here are a sample of the "For Your Consideration" print campaign:

National Board Review gave Les Mis the Best Ensemble Award

Zero Dark Thirty is off to a good start winning Best Picture, Director (Kathryn Bigelow) and Cinematography (Greig Fraser) at NYFCC and followed that up with a Best Pic, Director and Best Actress (Jessica Chastain) at the National Board Review

Though not a Best Pic contender (well according to the experts),
 this is a good print campaing for The Dark Knight Rises

Lincoln won Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actress (Sally Fields) and Screenplay (Tony Kushner) at the NYFCC

Marion Cotillard might be another Best Actress
contender for French film Rust and Bone

Argo, a favorite among the critics might win Ben Affleck his Oscar for Direction
