Ang LeeOh yeah baby - it's on. And by "it" I mean "awards season": the LA Film Critics Association announced their results (though the ceremony won't happen until next month) last night, we hear from the National Board of Review and the NY Film Critics Circle on Monday, and the Golden Globe nominations come out on Tuesday. Can you stand the excitement?

If the LA Film Critics are anything to go on, it's going to be a big winter for Ang Lee and his Gay Cowboys: Brokeback Mountain was named best picture, while Lee took home best director honors. Meanwhile, star Heath Ledger finished a close second to Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was voted best actor for his work as Truman Capote. Capote also had a big night, as Dan Futterman shared the best screenplay award with Noah Baumbach, who wrote The Squid and the Whale.

The most interesting thing about the voting was the absence of support for King Kong (its only votes came in the cinematography and production design categories) and the "unpromoted" but insanely hyped Munich ("there was almost nothing for Munich, maybe a couple of acting votes, but very scattered"). Jeez, don't these people read Time?
