Critics Awards: Super Monday – Chicago & St. Louis Reveal Winners, Indiana & Southeastern Also Announce

Chicago & St. Louis film critics groups revealed their nominations last week and announced who won the categories today. While two other groups: Indiana Film Journalists Association and the Southeastern Film Critics Association just announced winners without nominations. Chicago really loved The Master and Zero Dark Thirty, basically awarding those two films wins in almost every category. St. Louis and the SEFCA both bent with Argo for their top award. All 4 groups today awarded Daniel Day-Lewis the Best Actor award. If you don’t think he’s the frontrunner for the Oscar then you are crazy town.

Indiana deserves some props for thinking outside of the awards season box and giving Safety Not Guaranteed its Best Picture win. While the movie missed out on some major nominations over the past few weeks, if the film has enough support I can see it getting an Adapted Screenplay nomination.

Also, look for an update to the critics award tally tonight. Lots of stuff happened yesterday and today so there will be some big changes to the chart.
