The New York Film Critics Circle released its annual list of award winners yesterday and there were some surprising results. Best picture went to Boyhood, with its star Patricia Arquette scoring the win for her supporting actress performance and Richard Linklater earning best director honors. Marion Cotillard actually picked up the best actress award for her work in two films, The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night. Best actor went to Timothy Spall for his turn in Mr. Turner, while best supporting actor was awarded to J.K. Simmons for Whiplash.

Other winners included The Grand Budapest Hotel for best screenplay, The LEGO Movie for best animated film, Darius Khondji as best cinematographer for The Immigrant, Ida for best foreign film, Citizenfour for best non-fiction film (documentary), Jennifer Kent received best first film for The Babadook and a special award was given to Adrienne Mancia.

These awards are often an early indicator for Oscar nominations, so it will be interesting to see if any of the winners end up earning nods. The New York Film Critics Circle Awards will be officially distributed in a ceremony on January 5 in New York City.

Tilda Swinton Is GQ’s Woman of the Year

We’ve gotta give GQ some props. The magazine has announced its Woman of the Year for 2014 and it’s not a Kardashian-Jenner or your typical blushing movie starlet barely out of her 20s.

The lad mag has chosen Tilda Swinton for the honor, and rightly so. If you couldn’t detect the woman’s inherent awesomeness (a near-impossible feat), the article confirms just how naturally cool The Grand Budapest Hotel actress is IRL. She was a professional gambler, betting on horses. She smells like “wildflowers and wood smoke.” She makes you eat haggis and then finishes the rest when you can’t take any more. 

There are no topless photos here, no boudoir booty shots with silken sheets covering her nether regions. Tilda is in full force, graceful, angular, androgynous — and not looking at all like a woman who’s lived 54 years. The shots are artistic, arresting portraits of the woman whose eyes are both haunting and gentle at the same time.

The Iconic Launches Free Same-Evening Delivery For Christmas

TheIconic-portraitFollowing the launch of its Saturday delivery service last month, The Iconic is now getting into the Christmas spirit by offering free same-evening delivery over the holiday season.

The Iconic is also extending its love to Brisbane and Adelaide metro areas for the holiday period, on top of the usual Sydney and Melbourne markets, which benefit from the 3-hour delivery all year round. Finally.

Not only will you be thankful for the quick turnaround when it comes to last-minute presents, you’ll also be happy to get our hands on stylish pieces for the staff parties, events and Sunday lunches which fill our calendar as the year draws to an end.

All you have to do is make your order by 11.30 am on weekdays to make the cut, and you’ll receive your goods that very evening. With the service already in full force, you can jump on The Iconic now to enjoy the offer.
