AFT Awards: Best Ensemble Cast

This is the twenty-second category of the 3rd Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category.

Runners-up:
THE HURT LOCKER
A SERIOUS MAN
BROKEN EMBRACES
THE LAST STATION
INVICTUS


The winner:
Inglourious Basterds tackled so many different threads, and all the actors were equally spectacular, from the serious РChristoph Waltz, M̩lanie Laurent, Diane Kruger, Denis Menochet Рto the absurd РBrad Pitt, Eli Roth, and the rest of the Basterds.

Other nominees:
A Single Man was an exercise in subdued expression of feelings, and all of the actors were remarkably up to the task. Away We Go allowed its protagonists to see a vast array of families, all wonderfully and kookily portrayed by an array of talented actors. Up in the Air took off as a result of its strong, realistic performances. An Education came to life with the help of its plucky heroine and those who enriched her experiences.
