From high-profile Hollywood hits to little movies that could, we've got the movies that won the critics' hearts -- and probably inspired you as well.

  • Awards Tour: Directors Guild of America Winners

    The Directors Guild of America has been in the awards game for decades ? in 1938, it bestowed an "Honorary Life Member" award to the legendary D.W. Griffith, and in 1948, it inaugurated its Outstanding Achievement in Feature Film honor, which went to Joseph Mankiewicz for A Letter to Three Wives. Since then, the Guild has expanded its roster of superlatives, handing out hardware for everything from daytime soaps to documentary features. It?s also nearly flawless as a barometer for the Best Director Academy Award. Only guild members can vote for nominees, which were announced on Jan. 12, and the winners were announced in a ceremony on Jan. 29.

  • Awards Tour: People's Choice Winners Announced!

    The 2011 People's Choice Awards ceremony have revealed their winners. They include a Twilight enterprise as Favorite Movie and Zac Efron as Favorite Star Under 25, an award that we're sure Efron has won a million times before, though if not, this was his year and he so totally deserved it. Again, we emphasize that these awards come from the people (all of them!), giving voice to the voiceless, the downtrodden, the commoners way too ugly to appear on a very large theater screen. If, for some insane reason you take umbrage with any of these choices or winners, what the hell, you big outcast weirdo.

  • Awards Tour: Writers Guild Winners

    The Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) and the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) have announced the winners for outstanding achievement in writing for the screen during 2010.

  • Awards Tour: 2011 Producers Guilds Awards Winners

Nominations were announced on an. 4, and this year's ceremony was held on Jan. 22 and hosted by super-producer Judd Apatow.

  • Michelle Williams Talks Blue Valentine

    Phrases like "one of the finest actors of their generation" get tossed around with abandon and free of context these days, but in the case of Michelle Williams it's the kind of hyperbole that can be tempting to succumb to. Over the course of her recent film career she's quietly but assuredly built an impressive resume, earning an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role opposite Heath Ledger in Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, garnering accolades for her beautifully calibrated turn in Kelly Reichardt's Wendy and Lucy, and lending emotional weight earlier this year to Martin Scorsese's pulp thriller, Shutter Island. But it's her performance in this week's Blue Valentine that's really going to elevate Williams in the acting pantheon. Read on for RT's full interview with the actress.

  • Five Favorite Films with Sofia Coppola

    "I never expected to win a prize for anything for my films," says writer-director Sofia Coppola, who won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2004 for Lost in Translation and whose latest, Somewhere, recently took home the Best Picture prize at the Venice Film Festival. When RT caught up with her recently, the quiet, modestly spoken Coppola seemed humbled by the attention, preferring to talk about vintage camera lenses and sound-mixing Ferrari engines rather than the Awards-season circus. Read on for Sofia Coppola's Five Favorite Films, and more.

  • Five Favorite Films with Stephen Dorff

    Strange days indeed for Stephen Dorff: thanks to his performance as a Hollywood lost boy in Sofia Coppola?s new film, Somewhere -- which took the honors at his year?s Venice Film Festival -- the actor has found himself thrust into the celebrity limelight, attending junkets, premieres and interviews much like Johnny Marco, the character he plays in the movie. Fittingly, RT met with Dorff in a hotel suite -- Marco spends much of the film listlessly marooned at LA's famous Chateau Marmont -- though he wasn't quite at the existential crossroads he faces on screen. Read on for our chat with Dorff about working with Coppola on Somewhere, but first -- here are his five favorite films.

  • Critics Consensus: True Grit Is Certified Fresh

    Happy holidays from RT! This week at the movies, we've got frontier justice (True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld), family awkwardness (Little Fockers, starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro), and a fantastic voyage (Gulliver's Travels, starring Jack Black and Amanda Peet). What do the critics have to say? It takes guts to try to fill John Wayne's shoes. But if anyone can substitute for the Duke, well, why not the Dude? The critics say the Coen Brothers' (relatively) straightforward remake of True Grit is a rewarding movie in its own right -- it's tough, sly, and filled with marvelous performances.

  • Awards Tour: Golden Globe Awards Winners

  • Awards Tour: The Social Network Wins New York Film Critics Online

  • Awards Tour: Critics Choice Movie Awards Winners

    The Broadcast Film Critics Association?s Critics? Choice Awards has been a key early stop on the road for those looking to take home Oscars. First held in 1995, Critics? Choice Awards honor films and actors in a variety of categories, including such non-Oscar groupings as Best Ensemble Cast, Best Comedy Film, and Best Young Performer. The association nominates 10 movies each year in its Best Film category ? a lot, to be sure, but still often predictive of the Academy?s Best Picture nominees. BFCA members cast written ballots for nominees, which were announced in December, and the awards were handed out Jan. 14.
