Utah Film Critics Praise “No Country”

By Franck Tabouring

The Utah Film Critics Association picked its winners of 2007 Friday, naming “No Country for Old Men” best film of the year. The Joel and Ethan Coen-directed thriller also won prizes for best direction, best screenplay and best supporting actor for Javier Bardem.

Daniel Day-Lewis was named best actor for his performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood,” an adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s novel “Oil!” Ellen Page received the best actress award for her role in Jason Reitman’s indie comedy “Juno.”

Amy Ryan took home the prize for best supporting actress for her role as a drug-addicted mother in Ben Affleck’s “Gone Baby Gone.”

Seth Gordon’s “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters” won in the best documentary category, while Bong Joon-Ho’s horror thriller “The Host” snatched the award for best non-English language film.

Brad Bird’s Pixar adventure “Ratatouille” was named best animated film, beating runner-up “The Simpsons Movie.”

Here’s yet another toast to the Coen brothers for their nth win. They are my new heroes.
