‘Argo’ and ‘The Master’ Top Online Film Critics Society Awards

The MasterThe Master is all too likely to disappear from many of the races once Oscar nominations are announced on Thursday, but the critics awards this season have been plenty rewarding of Paul Thomas Anderson’s structural oddity. While not landing Best Picture with the Online Film Critics Society – recently resurgent Argo took that along with Adapted Screenplay – they singled out Paul Thomas Anderson in the Director category, along with Phillip Seymour Hoffman for Supporting Actor. Jessica Chastain overtook Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress, showing that Zero Dark Thirty wasn’t entirely out of their minds.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway continued to sew up their gargantuan leads in their respective races. Holy Motors and This Is Not a Film took the Foreign Language and Documentary categories, respectively, having found placement on a number of Top 10 lists. The most outside-the-box win went to Cloud Atlas for Film Editing, which is a messy consideration, but an easily understandable one.
