EARLIER: Over the weekend, the LA Film Critics Association (winners here), the Boston Film Critics and the British Independent Film Awards announced their winners. Yesterday, critics in DC announced their winners (after the jump). 

We’re starting to see a pattern of wins across critics voting. Judging from unanimous wins and noms, there’s no stopping “Gravity” DP Emmanuel Lubezki on his way to the finish line this awards season. Between NYFCO, LA and Boston, critics are singing the sweet sounds of “Inside Llewyn Davis” in unison. “Act of Killing” keeps winning documentary, and “The Wind Rises” is scoring a lot of animation wins. Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitvale Station” keeps landing the first-time filmmaker award.

Critics are also standing tall behind Lupita Nyong’o and “12 Years a Slave” took Best Picture in Boston and from NYFCO. Meanwhile, Jared Leto is picking up honors across the board. 

Across the pond, the British Independent Film Awards have lauded many festival faves awaiting 2014 stateside theatrical premiere, from “Filth” and “The Selfish Giant” to “Metro Manila” and “Starred Up.”
