  1. Yay! I loved Beast of the Southern Wild’s score so I’m happy it won that. As of this time with the three revealed winners, I have little complaint.

  2. Loved the votes for Beasts and Amour. Well done on those. Still they bypassed Lincoln and Les Mis. Contrarian or just trying to look cool? The votes for the The Master should have been dumped in the trash with the film.

  3. @Jamie White Being a guy who thinks The Master was one of the best films of the year, I am perfectly content with its wins. However, I am also happy Beasts of the Southern Wild and Amour are getting well deserved love too. It’s just part of the fun of the awards race. Not every film will win what we think they deserve, but it is nice to see a spread of love in critic awards. And no, it doesn’t have to be contrary to not vote for Lincoln or Les Miserables (though some people will do that, which is wrong). I loved Lincoln and I haven’t seen Les Miserbles yet, but it’s hard to say what film ultimately is my favorite of the year out of five or six seen/unseen movies. I’ll vote for whoever I think is the best though, regardless of buzz.
