    I’ve always thought of the NY, LA, Natioal Society and National Board of review as the main critic’s groups.

    Who has swept them? It is a surprisingly small group.

    I can think of Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep (Sophie’s Choice).

    any others come to mind?

    I think that might be all of them. Though there’s quite a few who won 3 out of 4.

    Oops I was completely wrong, there were more. Of the ones listed above, only Michelle Pfeiffer lost the Oscar.

    NBR not a critics group by any acceptable marker. They are “enthusiasts” and teachers and fans and some with former studio ties.

    From recent years, to win from NY, LA and NSFC, you have:

    Sean Penn, Milk
    Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
    Forest Whitaker, Last King of Scotland*^1
    Bill Murray, Lost in Translation

    Isabelle Huppert, Elle & Things to Come
    Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine*^2
    Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky
    Helen Mirren, The Queen
    Imelda Staunton, Vera Drake*^3

    Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
    J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
    Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds*^4

    Patricia Arquette, Boyhood*^5
    Jessica Chastain, The Tree of Life & Take Shelter & The Help
    Mo’Nique, Precious
    Virginia Madsen, Sideways

    *1 – tied with Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) at LAFCA
    *2 – tied with Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Color) at LAFCA
    *3 – tied with Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby) at NSFC
    *4 – tied with Paul Schneider (Bright Star) at NSFC
    *5 – won Lead Actress at LAFCA
