'12 Years a Slave' rules Online critics awards, nabs three acting wins

Posted by · 9:00 am · December 16th, 2013

The Online Film Critics’ Society had some unique choices among their nominees — with Johnnie To’s “Drug War” up for Best Picture, for example — but consensus favorites ruled when it came to picking the winners. Most notable here is that the predictably dominant haul for “12 Years a Slave” included three of the four acting categories, including a win for Michael Fassbender — who has largely played bridesmaid to Jared Leto so far this season, but recently got on the scoreboard thanks to Kansas City. “Gravity,” however, once more interrupted the streak by taking Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. This is becoming a bit of a pattern in the critics’ awards; might the Oscars follow suit? Full list of winners after the cut, with all the season’s awards so far at The Circuit.
