Sideways Dominates 2004 Film Awards

More and more critics’ awards are coming in, and the Golden Globe nominations are in as well.

And in this year of huge, expensive epics (Troy, Alexander), glamorous biopics (Ray, Kinsey, The Aviator), and big controversial titles (Passion of the Christ, Fahrenheit 9/11), it’s a little movie about a grouchy middle-aged man, his loose-living friend, and the science of wine tasting that owns the spotlight.

Alexander Payne’s Sideways is cleaning house.

Movie City News is keeping score.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
