International Cinephile Society Awards the Less Known

The winners of the 2014 International Cinephile Society Awards were announced yesterday, and the unique films that have gone unknown to the Oscars came out on top. I wish the films that won big in these awards were the actual winners at the Oscars. What a game change that would be. The latest film to come from the Coen brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis, amazingly took four top awards at the ICS awards. These wins include Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Ensemble. This film is nominated for different categories at the Oscars; the awards for Cinematography and Sound Editing.

 

blueruinForeign film, Blue is the Warmest Color, took wins as well. Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity also scooped a few awards in there, hoping to claim the wins of all ten nominations at the Academy Awards this Sunday. Plenty of folks on Twitter are just loving the winners of the ICS awards, and the society in general. It seems like the awards for the obscure films, those films too precious for mainstream theaters. Big contenders didn’t win here, but may very well beat the odds on Oscar night. Below are all the award winners of yesterday’s ICS awards according to their site.
