Zero Dark ThirtyHow many 2012 New York Film Critics Circle award winners do I agree with? As it stands right now, exactly one - but you'll have to guess which one that is because I'm not telling. However, while you're guessing keep in mind that I haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty yet.

The NYFCC showered a lot of love on Spielberg's Lincoln, with that film taking the Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Supporting Actress (Sally Field), and Best Screenplay honors. And after selecting so many winners from Lincoln, the NY group turned their attention to Zero Dark Thirty. This year's top awards went to Kathryn Bigelow's dramatic tale of the search for Osama bin Laden, with the New York critics naming Zero Dark Thirty Best Film and Bigelow Best Director.
