Beyond a certain massive awards show that celebrated its 65th birthday with a strike-embattled whimper, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association handed out its previously announced awards on Saturday night at a lovely ceremony at the InterContinental. Paul Thomas Anderson’s marvelous, intimate oil baron epic There Will Be Blood won the Best Film prize in addition to a trophy for actor Daniel Day-Lewis and director Anderson. Best Actress went to the lovely Marion Cotillard (pictured above) for her remarkable performance as tragic French singer Edith Piaf in La vie en rose. Note to Cotillard: pull a Tonya Harding on Julie Christie and steal that Oscar! You deserve it!
