Critics groups from Austin, Las Vegas, Florida and Phoenix have lent their voices to the awards season onslaught, with Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" and Spike Jonze's "Her" adding more best picture prizes to their counts. The former won Las Vegas, Florida and Phoenix, while the latter won Austin.

McQueen and Alfonso Cuarón split the best director prizes down the middle, while "12 Years" lead Chiwetel Ejiofor and Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club") did the same for best actor. Cate Blanchett, Emma Thompson and Brie Larson each won a best actress prize (or two, in Blanchett's case), and Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto continued their domination of the supporting prizes by winning all four.

Full list of winners from each group below. Check out this list of every single award announced so far this season here.
