The New York Film Critics Circle have announced their awards for the year and Zero Dark Thirty comes out on top as the big winner with three wins, including for Picture and Director. Lincoln was no slouch either with three wins of its own, including for actor and supporting actress. Some surprises with the other acting categories as Rachel Weisz wins for The Deep Blue Sea which came out in March, and Matthew McConaughey wins for his two performances in Bernie and Magic Mike. Also, Michael Haneke's Amour won for Best Foreign Language Film.

What does it all mean? Zero Dark Thirty is definitely now a big player in the Awards season. It's really looking like it's gonna be a dogfight between that film and Lincoln. But again, as I've said before, it doesn't matter at this point. Argo, The Master, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Les Miserables... they're all gonna be rewarded at some point in the next few months, we really won't know what's up until the Oscar nominations come out.
