And just after I mentioned how The Master seemed a little lacklustre in my last post, it takes Best Actor, Supporting Actor and Actress from Vancouver. But it’s still all about Zero Dark Thirty and the wrath of Bigelow, taking four awards from this set of Canadian voters. And this is very much a Canadian affair, with some awards simply for homegrown talent – loving the Sarah Gadon win.

Online Film Critics Society Award Winners

After leading the nominations, it’s no surprise that Paul Thomas Anderson won Best Director, but apart from Philip Seymour Hoffman’s award, it doesn’t really make much of a mark here.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Jessica Chastain are old news and mortal locks for Oscar nominations, with their respective chances of walking away with the grand prize on the night rather easy to visualise.

Argo took Best Picture and Anne Hathaway wins another trophy for what is surely one of the world’s largest mantlepieces. Cloud Atlas (yeah, you heard – still so excited about seeing this), Skyfall and Moonrise Kingdom are also recognised.

Critic Circle Update: Because I Got Slack, And That.

San Francisco, Satellite Awards, Chicago, St. Louis, Indiana, Toronto, Florida, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin, Black Film Critics, Utah, Dublin, Women Films Circle – I feel I may have neglected you slightly.

With thirteen different lists of winners to report back on, well, I’ll keep it brief, but a list of Best Picture, Director, all four Acting winners, Best Screenplays, Cinematography, Documentary, Animation and Foreign Film can be found below.

It’s mainly all about Zero Dark Thirty and Daniel Day-Lewis as expected, but there are some interesting wins to pick up on (namely thanks to Toronto) and prizes to whoever finds The Artist hidden within.

I don’t know if I ever truly buy into the whole ‘runner-up’ business, as it forms a bit of a backhanded compliment. But if we’re to read into them, The Master appears to reign supreme what with its wins for Phoenix, Adams, Anderson and ‘prize’ of runner-up to Haneke’s Amour in the Best Picture category.

Elsewhere, Beasts Of The Southern Wild keeps afloat with wins for Best Supporting Actor, Score and the LAFCA’s ‘New Generation’ accolade for Zeitlin. Oh, and congratulations to William Goldenberg for managing to beat himself to the prize for Best Editing. Impressive.
