Matt writes: With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, this year's awards season is already in full swing, with various titles vying for Oscar consideration. At RogerEbert.com, we recently reported on the nominees for the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which has often proven to be an indicator of Academy favorites.

Matt writes: Abbas Kiarostami, who passed away July 4th at age 76, was one of the great masters of the cinematic art form. I'll never forget the experience of watching his 1990 landmark, "Close-Up," in its pristine Criterion edition, or becoming entranced by his 2010 masterwork, "Certified Copy," when I first saw it on the big screen. Patrick Z. McGavin wrote a beautiful tribute to Kiarostami, as did Godfrey Cheshire, who reflected on his friendship with the icon. Various staff members at RogerEbert.com also pitched in to offer their own remembrances in a lovely multi-voice piece.
