'No Country,' 'Blood' win at Sierra Awards
“No Country for Old Men” and “There Will Be Blood” shot their way to the top as the Las Vegas Film Critics Society announced the winners of their 2007 Sierra Awards. The two films tied for the most kudos from the org at three apiece.
Miramax’s ensemble effort “No Country for Old Men” took picture, director (Joel and Ethan Coen) and supporting actor (Javier Bardem).
“There Will Be Blood” winners were Daniel Day-Lewis for actor, Robert Elswit for cinematography and Jonny Greenwood for score.
Actress nod went to Ellen Page in “Juno,” supporting actress to Cate Blanchett for “I’m Not There.” “Juno” also drew kudos for screenplay (original or adapted) for Diablo Cody.
Disney-Pixar’s “Ratatouille” was doubly recognized for animated pic and family film. France’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” won for foreign film, Michael Moore’s “Sicko” for documentary.
