The Cricket's Daily 3: New York critics like 'Hustle'
Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:
• David O. Russell's '70s con-game drama "American Hustle" took three top honors from the New York Film Critics Circle: Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence. Other acting honors went to Robert Redford ("All Is Lost"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"). [Twitter]
• Billy Joel has signed on to be a regular presence at New York's Madison Square Garden, performing "a show a month at the Garden for as long as there's demand." Considering how bad the Knicks are this season, maybe this is for the best. [Vulture]
• The Library of Congress issues a report, which finds that only 14 percent of the movies made during the silent era have survived intact to today. So start scouring those basements, folks. [The Hollywood Reporter]
