The New York Film Critics Circle jumped the gun today and announced its award winners for the year. And, inevitably, they gave the Best Supporting Actress award to Jessica Chastain (The Help). And Jessica Chastain (Take Shelter). And Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life).
The Best Film and Best Director both went (in a rare move) to The Artist and Michel Hazanavicius, while Brad Pitt and Meryl Streep both picked up lead acting gongs. But while some results were surprising (Albert Brooks, Best Supporting for Drive), some brilliant (Best Non-Fiction Film to the Oscar-snubbed Cave of Forgotten Dreams) and others predictable (Emmanuel Lubezki, Best Cinematography for The Tree of Life), the main thing to take away from the awards is that Jessica Chastain is a formidable Oscars contender. But not as formidable as Jessica Chastain. Or Jessica Chastain.
And so it's official: the campaign for all three Jessica Chastains to take over the world, King Ghidorah-style, is well underway.
Cower in terror at her triple-headed supporting prowess.
Just be glad she didn't win for The Debt and Coriolanus too. Then I'd have to think of a monster with five heads.
