Reflecting an awards season in which no one film is dominating, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, voting Sunday, produced a tie, awarding its best picture prize to both Alfronso Cuaron’s survival-in-space-tale Gravity and Spike Jonze’s slightly futuristic love story Her. Cuaron was also named best director, with Jonze as runner-up. Gravity also was cited for its cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki and its editing by Cuaron and Mark Sanger, while Her got a nod for K.K. Barrett’s production design.

Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity continues to fly high, crossing the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office over the weekend.
The 3D space epic, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has now grossed $240.6 million domestically and $274.3 million internationally for a global total of $515 million through Sunday.
From Warner Bros., Gravity has yet to open in China and Japan, and is expected to ultimately earn north of $600 million.
Despite blockbuster Thor: The Dark World, Gravity took in $18.5 million internationally over the weekend from 62 markets. Domestically, it placed No. 6 in its seventh weekend with $6.3 million.
Gravity is the No. 7 title of the year worldwide.
Overseas, France leads with $37.5 million, followed by Korea ($26.5 million), the U.K. ($23.2 million), Russia ($20.9 million) and Australia ($18.1 million). The movie has only been playing the U.K. for two weeks.
Internationally, Gravity has rolled out slowly, hoping to play off word of mouth. The strategy has paid off in a big way for WB.
Space thriller Gravity took £6.23 million on its opening weekend in Britain, it was announced today.
Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock and produced in Britain, it has already taken $470 million (£300 million) at the box office worldwide.
The figures make it the best opening weekend in Britain for any Clooney film, beating Ocean’s Eleven which took £5 million. It was also the best for Bullock, beating The Proposal at £3.25 million.
Expectations for Gravity were high after a string of glowing reviews after it premiered at the London Film Festival last month.
Last Wednesday (November 7) Sandy attended a special screening of Gravity held by LA Times, and I have a few pictures up in the gallery:
