The Las Vegas Film Critics Society — what screens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas — has joined other critics groups in picking the Coen Brothers' "No Country for Old Men" as best picture. The society announced its annual Sierra Awards today.
The film is the one movie to emerge as a serious Oscar contender, having also won the top honors at the National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, Toronto Film Critics Association, Washington D.C. Film Critics Association, Boston Society of Film Critics and our own Chicago Film Critics Association. It's also up for several Golden Globe awards.
The Sierra Awards also gave best supporting actor to Javier Bardem from the film, as well as best director to Joel and Ethan Coen.
