There was a famous New Yorker cartoon called The Critic, a stage-eye-view of the audience laughing their butts off at something, and a glowering man sitting front row centre.

It’s a vibe not confined to critics, but to all the participants of awards season – a.k.a. the season for serious movies. And while I applaud that, for a limited time only, we have something to watch besides superheroes, it’s too bad comedies aren’t taken more seriously.

Awards season is upon us, and the Peach State’s film critics have named their favorite movies and performances from 2016.

The Georgia Film Critics Association has handed out awards in categories much like the Oscars since it was founded in 2011 by CAmeron McAllister, marketing director for the Atlanta Film Society. The organization, which includes critics from various publications across the state, including Atlanta Business Chronicle contributor Eleanor Ringel Cater, was a big fan of nostalgic musical “La La Land” and “Moonlight,” which both won multiple awards.

It also gave “The Nice Guys,” which filmed in Georgia and stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the Oglethorpe Award for Excellence in Georgia Cinema.

“It surprised me when I was tabulating the votes,” McAllister said. “I don’t think ‘The Nice Guys’ will see any Oscar love, but it’s a really good film with a smart screenplay.”

2. THE NICE GUYS

This was the best original film released this year that unfortunately many didn’t see. A buddy-cop action comedy featuring perfect chemistry from Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling and one of the funniest scripts of the year. I’m not normally an advocate for sequels, but I would gladly see another film featuring these characters!

Funniest chemistry
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in “The Nice Guys,” Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn in “Bad Moms” (particularly in the scene in which Bell imitates a male body part, which really should win her some sort of Oscar), Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in “Keanu.”

9. “The Nice Guys”

This gritty, shameless 1970s-set buddy comedy about a pair of crime-solvers played by an unlikely comedy team of Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling works beautifully as a throwback gem. Think “48 Hrs.” meets “Lethal Weapon” but wittier and full of polyester, “porn ‘staches” and bad wallpaper, with a funky soundtrack. It’s groovy, man, very groovy.

The Nice Guys

Shane Black’s buddy comedy was supposed to be the movie that saved studios from their worst instincts: a wholly original idea, with the backing of major stars (Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe), a decent budget, and no franchise expectations. Instead, this delightfully coarse caper barely earned $36-million at the box office, and will likely be used as an example of what not to do.

That’s a shame, as Black crafted a sharp, immensely entertaining ode to old-school tough-guy shenanigans.

Pick of the year
The Nice Guys, Shane Black’s homage to Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles, is a terrific comedy thriller.

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling play pratfalling private eyes on the trail of a missing porn actress back in the sleazeball Seventies.

Gosling is the star of The Big Short, too, which, though it explains the ongoing financial crash of 2008, is also a lot of fun.

Coming from the same writer as the original Lethal Weapon movie, one has to wonder if that same magic has been captured again in this recent “buddy movie”? Now that The Nice Guys is about to drop on DVD & Blu Ray release, it is time to revisit this movie to see if it’s worth the purchase or rent out for a night.
