Critics Awards: Super Sunday: Los Angeles, Boston & New York Online Announce Their Winners

It was a very busy day with the critics awards. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the Boston Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Online all announced their picks for the Best of 2012.

The LAFCA was the most important of the precursors today and they gave a much needed boost to a lot of Oscar contenders. While BSFC and NYFCO all went with the critical darling so far, Zero Dark Thirty, the LAFCA broke from the pack and gave Amour their award for Best Picture. Emmanuelle Riva has always been a sure thing in the Best Actress, but it’s chances outside of that category have been murky. It’s now in the running for a Best Picture slot. The male lead from that film, Jean-Louis Trintignant, has yet to pick up any traction in the Best Actor category. The Master also picked up some much needed wins in the Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor categories. (The Production Design team was also given a win.) Dwight Henry from Beasts of the Southern Wild picked up Best Supporting Actor. He’s now in talks, at least, for getting more nominations in the coming weeks.

The other two critics groups, the BSFC & NYFCO, went the usual route and awarded Zero Dark Thirty two more Best Picture winners. They also went with Daniel Day-Lewis & Emannuelle Riva in the leading categories. Thank God the LAFCA went a little unconventional and made things more interesting today. Here are the winners for all of those groups.

Also, don’t forget next week is going to be very busy. Monday: The AFI announce their Top 10 of the Year and the Critics Choice nominations are announced. Wednesday: The Screen Actors Guild nominations are announced. Thursday: The Golden Globe nominations are announced. Very busy week.
