Film Awards Midseason Report: ‘Everything Everywhere’ Leads Critics

5 min read

With 32 critics and industry awards handed out so far, Oscar nomination voting is now just 10 days away. So where will the top of the new year? The Palm Springs Film Festival kicks off later this week, and the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards will soon mark the first televised events of the season.

Will “The Fablemans” Bring Director Steven Spielberg His Third Statue? What’s all locked and loaded for Who Huy Quan? Will early favorites like Brendan Fraser go all the way? Who in God’s name will win the lead actress and supporting actress? Who are the potential surprise nominees that could rise in these final days? Here are the number of awards earned so far.

best picture

  1. “Everything Everything is all at all at all.”
  2. “The Banshees of Inisharin” – 5
  3. “He said” and “his” – 2

A24’s multiverse dramedy is a critical favorite with huge wins, including at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (where it’s tied with “Tár”). This is not surprising given the love for the feature since its debut. The biggest question mark remains whether Daniels will make the Academy Award debut, no matter how passionate FilmTwitter is. But who can blame them for being so bullish on its prospects (at least on paper)? The box office hit is the critical leader in five categories and second in four others. But one fact that Oscar enthusiasts tend to forget – critics don’t vote on the Academy Awards. They provide a roadmap to the destination, but Oscars can take their own path (and they almost always do).

It’s still a wide-open race where “Banshees” could catch fire down the road later or a crowdpleaser like “Top Gun: Maverick” could take full advantage of a preferred ballot system. Although “her” has only received two wins so far, LAFCA and New York Film Critics are two notable organizations. That bodes well for Todd Field, who is hunting for a directing nod.

Keep an eye on “She Said,” a mystical entity worth considering, especially after its surprising AFI Top 10 mention.


  1. Daniels (“Everything Everything All at One”) – 16
  2. Todd Field (“Tár”) – 3
  3. Martin McDonagh (“The Banshees of Inishreen”), Sarah Polley (“Woman Talking”) and Charlotte Wells (“Aftersun”) – 2

The Daniels performed well on the awards circuit, winning many awards including Best Picture. If the Academy thinks a couple should be rewarded, I’ve gone on record about feeling their way into movies winning the Oscars’ top prize. Is it impossible to get recognition of the party? Absolutely not.

If the Daniels can snag a Golden Globe win, as the first directing duo to win with their 80-year-old group, their chances could be greatly enhanced.

best actor

  1. Colin Farrell (“The Banshees of Inishreen”) – 16
  2. Brendan Fraser (“The Whale”) – 9

Farrell and Fraser are the only contestants to win multiple critics’ awards this season. Bill Nye’s LAFCA win for lead performance could give him steam heading into the final days of SAG Awards voting. He has been drawn among the original noms for a Globe and critics’ choice.

It’s worth noting that Austin Butler’s turn in “Elvis” and Gabrielle LaBelle’s turn in “The Fablemans” won two breakout awards on the circuit.

best actress

  1. Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everything All at One”) – 15
  2. Cate Blanchett (“Tar”) – 11
  3. Daniel Deadwiler (“Teal”) – 2

A tight race if ever there was one with Cate Blanchett and Michelle Yeoh pulling away from the pack. Daniel Deadwiler’s two wins will hopefully keep him on the radar for a while. The only other women mentioned are Vicky Cripps for “Corsage” (probably helping the film’s chances in international features) and Rosie McEwen for “Blue Jean” (a potential BAFTA favorite).

supporting actor

  1. Ke Hui Quan (“Everything Everything All at Ex”) – 24
  2. Brendan Gleeson (“The Banshees of Inisharin”) – 2

When Kay Hui Kwan won the Gotham Award for Best Supporting Performance, it was a symbolic kickoff to her influential campaign. He achieved this with his turn as the lovable Waymond Wang in Daniels’ martial arts philosophy. Martin McDonagh’s romp turns out to be his competitor Brendan Gleeson’s Irish musician. Only Gleason and Cowan are named among the pioneers tracked.


  1. Kerry Condon (“The Banshees of Inishreen”) – 9
  2. Janelle Monae (“Glass Onion”) – 4
  3. Stephanie Who (“Everything Everything All at One”) – 3

A surprising turn of events is that Kerry Condon’s fiery turn “Banshees” has been the most awarded on the circuit up to this point, but that makes sense when many of these companies vote on a preferential ballot system. It’s easy to see Condon’s performance as a series of numbers. 2 and no. 3 choices, everyone’s preferences are different. The same can be said for Janelle Monáe’s dual role duties.

Stephanie Hsu’s team hopes the young breakout from “Everything Everywhere” can join her co-star Jamie Lee Curtis on the Oscar ballot, especially with the season’s third-most wins. Notably, he also has two wins for a breakthrough performer, which we don’t count in this race tally.

To highlight the category’s unknown trajectory, 11 different actresses have won the award, including Curtis and Keke Palmer (“No”), including multiple. Other notables include Angela Bassett (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”), Jessie Buckley (“Woman Talking”), Hong Chow (“The Whale”), Dolly De Leon (“Triangle”) and Nina Hoss (“Tar”). ) )
