PopMatters perennial favorite Buddy Miller swept last night’s Americana Music Association Awards at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for his recent duet album with wife Julie Miller. Written in Chalk is indeed one of the finest albums of the year in any genre. In the clip below, Miller discusses the making of the acclaimed album, which also features collaborations with Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, and Patty Griffin. Miller also won Artist of the Year and Duo/Group of the Year. Full list of winners after the jump.

In 2002, Moore was considered a heavy favorite to win the Oscar for her excellent lead work as Cathy Whitaker in Todd Haynes’ Far from Heaven or her equally powerful supporting in Stephen Daldry’s The Hours as Laura Brown. Joining a list that includes Emma Thompson and Sigourney Weaver, she went home empty-handed that fateful night.

Deja-vu: watch out for her upcoming two-category sweep in 2010: First up is a much-discussed lead turn in Atom Egoyan’s Chloe, a sexually-charged drama in which Moore’s tony doctor hires an escort (Amanda Seyfried) to bed her husband. Remember that nobody does “sexually-charged” quite like Moore. This is the woman who gave us Boogie Nights’ Amber Waves and the tawdry, delicious Savage Grace last year, after all.

Then comes the pièce de résistance for the awards season: Moore’s supporting turn in designer-turned-film director Tom Ford’s A Single Man, opposite Colin Firth as a gay man who has just lost his long-time lover.
