New York Film Critics Circle Awards name Zero Dark Thirty as Best Picture, Daniel Day-Lewis as Best Actor

12.03.2012

The New York Film Critics Circle Awards have been announced which means we have our first look at who will be in the running for the Academy Awards in February. While many of these are unsurprising, it does remain to be seen how closely the Oscars will mimic this list.

Best Movie: ZERO DARK THIRTY

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, LINCOLN

Best Actress: Rachel Weisz, THE DEEP BLUE SEA

Best Supporting Actress: Sally Field, LINCOLN

Best Supporting Actor: Matthew McConaughey, BERNI/MAGIC MIKE

Best Director: Kathryn Bigalow, ZERO DARK THIRTY

Best Screenplay: Tony Kushner, LINCOLN

Best Cinematographer: Greig Fraser, ZERO DARK THIRTY

Best Animated Film: FRANKENWEENIE

Best Foreign Film: AMOUR

Best Documentary: THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE

Best First Film: HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE

LINCOLN winning acting awards while ZERO DARK THIRTY takes directing and film seems to be on par with how those films have been reviewed to date. They also seem like the safe bets, which is what movie fans have been railing at the Academy for going with year in and year out. If these winners hold true for the Oscars, this will once again be one of the whitest group of winners in years.

While this list does not include all of the possible nominees, you would have to assume ARGO, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, HITCHCOCK, LES MISERABLES, DJANGO UNCHAINED, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, and LIFE OF PI were in the running as well.

I don't disagree with these nominees, but I also didn't think THE HURT LOCKER was Best Picture a few years ago. I will reserve judgement until I have seen ZERO DARK THIRTY.

Extra Tidbit: Any films you are surprised at from this list?
