'Zero Dark Thirty' steals a march at critics awards

MUMBAI: Kathryn Bigelow?s ?Zero Dark Thirty? about the hunt by the C.I.A. for Osama Bin Laden has picked up many critics awards.

It won best picture from the National Board of Review, the New York Film Critics Circle, the Boston Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Online.

The one critics group that awarded something else was the Los Angeles Film Critics Association which voted for the foreign film ?Amour? as its best film. It also gave a much needed boost to ?The Master? by naming Paul Thomas Anderson as best director. Bigelow was the runner up here.

Daniel Day Lewis has picked up a few awards for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg?s biopic. But so far ?Lincoln? has not been named best picture or by anybody apart from the National board of review which included it in its top 10. Their top 10 list had some surprises like ?The Perks of Being a Wallflower? getting in while films like ?Life of Pi? were left out.

The Best actress Oscar is a fight between Jessica Chastain for ?Zero Dark Thirty? and Jennifer Lawrence for ?Silver Linings Playbook?. Both have won critics awards. One surprise so far was Rachel Weisz winning best actor from the New York Film Critics Circle for ?Deep Blue Sea?. This week will be busy with the Screen Actors Guild announcing their nominees. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will also be announcing their list of nominees for the Golden Globe Awards this week. The American Film Institute will also announce their list of top 10 movies of the year.
