National Society of Film Critics Goes with ‘Amour’

National Society of Film Critics Goes with 'Amour'

Always the last of the major film critics groups to weigh in, usually after the new year, the National Society of Film Critics has made its picks for 2012, led by much-lauded multiple winner “Amour.”

With the pushed-up Academy voting, ballots are already in for nominations, which will be announced Thursday, January 10. A big question is whether “Amour” will land a best picture, best actress or–most likely–original screenplay nominations; we can assume that the foreign film committee will include it in the final five.

  • Picture: “Amour”
  • Actor: Daniel Day Lewis (“Lincoln”)
  • Actress: Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”)
  • Supporting Actor: Matthew McConaughey (“Bernie,” “Magic Mike”)
  • Supporting Actress: Amy Adams (“The Master”)
  • Director: Michael Haneke (“Amour”)
  • Non-Fiction: (“The Gatekeepers”)
  • Cinematography: Mihai Malaimare, Jr. (“The Master”)
  • Screenplay: Tony Kushner, “Lincoln”
