NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN has been named movie of the year (07) by the Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association. Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen have also been awarded Best Director, while Javier Barden was handed the Best Supporting Actor prize for the brooding drama, which is based on a novel by Cormac MCCarthy. Elsewhere, Daniel Day-Lewis picked up Best Actor for his role in There Will Be Blood, and the Best Actress prize went to Julie Christie for her performance in Away From Her. Tilda Swinton was named Best Actress for her role in Michael Clayton. No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood are emerging as the front-runners to take top honours at the 2008 Academy Awards - both pictures lead various U.S. critics' polls, which are regarded as solid indicators of Oscar glory.
