If you ask me, the Las Vegas Film Critics called it straight and true by awarding their Best Cinematography award to Children of Men dp Emmanuel Lubezki (a.k.a. “Chivo”). They also decided somewhat originally by naming Djimon Honsou as Best Supporting Actor for his work in Blood Diamond, and by toasting Thank You For Smoking‘s Jason Reitman for having written the Best Screenplay (original or adapted) award. Otherwise, it was the same old litany — The Last King of Scotland‘s Forest Whitaker for Best Actor, The Queen‘s Helen Mirren for Best Actress, Dreamgirls‘ Jennifer Hudson for Best Supporting Actress, The Departed‘s Martin Scorsese for Best Director. The Best Film Editing prize went to The Departed‘s Thelma Schoonmaker, and good for that.
