â€œNo Country for Old Menâ€ topped yet another award list on Tuesday as the Detroit Film Critics Society announced its winners of 2007. The Joel and Ethan Coen-helmed thriller was named best film and took home prizes for direction and supporting actor for Javier Bardem.
George Clooney won best actor for his performance in Tony Gilroyâ€™s political thriller â€œMichael Clayton.â€ Ellen Page won in the best actress category for her role in Jason Reitmanâ€™s hit indie â€œJuno,â€ beating runners-up Julie Christie, Amy Adams, Laura Linney and Marion Cotillard.
â€œJunoâ€ also took home the award for best ensemble and best newcomer for screenwriter Diablo Cody.
Tilda Swinton snatched the award for best supporting actress for her role in â€œMichael Clayton.â€ She went up against Amy Ryan in â€œGone Baby Gone,â€ Cate Blanchett in â€œIâ€™m Not There,â€ Catherine Keener in â€œInto the Wildâ€ and Emily Mortimer in â€œLars and the Real Girl.â€
The U.S. is definitely the right country for the Coen brothers, considering their continuing dominance among award winners. I have a certain feeling that their reign is not over yet.
