'Lincoln' leads Washington DC Area film critics nominations, 'Zero Dark Thirty' wins

Posted by · 11:45 am · December 10th, 2012

The Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association announced its list of nominees for the 2012 film awards season yesterday. Had no idea. Then winners today. A little too quick a turnaround, folks. Anyway, no surprise that Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” led the field with eight nominations. Tom Hooper’s “Les Misérables” wasn’t far behind with seven. But it was “Zero Dark Thirty” that took the wins for Best Picture and Best Director. It wouldn’t be too crazy to expect a number of these categories to match up perfectly with Oscar. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (***) below, and remember to keep track of the 2012-2013 film awards season via The Circuit.
