'Cinema in Noir' Discusses Awards Season Winners and Losers, and the South African Drama 'Otelo Burning'

I know you've just been dying to hear what Cinema in Noir has to say about this year's crop of winners and losers (both fashion and talent-wise) this awards season. So on tonight's episode we shared our thoughts on the winners lists for both the Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Awards, as well as the recently-announced Oscar nominees.

While American Hustle doesn't get much love from our crew (put it this way, I enjoyed it the most out of all of us and you know how I felt about it), Her was unanimously adored by the three of us as we metaphorically popped champagne and sang its praises. We also liked Nebraska, 12 Years a Slave and some of the glorious fashion dos and epic fashion don'ts we've seen on the red carpet this season.

But of course we couldn't end the episode without lamenting about some of this year's biggest Oscar snubs--including Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips, Michael B. Jordan for Fruitvale Station and Naomie Harris for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Oh, and my two co-hosts also shared their reviews of Ride Along (currently the #1 movie in America), and the South African drama, Otelo Burning. Check out the trailer for the latter:
