With Oscar nominations on Thursday and the Golden Globe Awards taking place on Sunday, chatter about the best movies and performances from 2012 is at an all-time high. Keeping in that spirit, the North Texas Film Critics Association, of which yours truly is a member, has handed out its annual awards. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln was the clear favorite.
Out of the 10 awards named, Lincoln won four, including Best Picture, Best Director for Spielberg, Best Actor for the dazzling Daniel Day-Lewis, and Best Supporting Actor for the often under-appreciated Tommy Lee Jones. No other film won more than one award.
