Among the roster of voters for this 12th edition of these kudos were several members of the New York Film Critics Circle, including Rex Reed (New York Observer) and Armond White (New York Press).
"Lincoln" also won Best Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones) while "ZD30" claimed Best Screenplay (Mark Boal).
Last year, the web-based members gave their top prize to "The Artist," as had the print critics. They also hailed that film's director Michel Hanzanvicus and "Iron Lady" star Meryl Streep as had the NYFCC. All of these repeated at the Oscars as did their pick for Original Screenplay ("The Descendants"). However, their choices for Best Actor (Michael Shannon, "Take Shelter") and Supporting Actor (Albert Brooks,"Drive") were not even nominated.
