The New York Film Critics’ Circle have announced their annual award winners, with yet-to-be-seen in Australia, Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln taking home the most accolades with 3 each. Kathryn Bigelow took home best director and best picture for her war on terror drama, while Lincoln won best screenplay, and acting awards for both Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field.

It’s particularly pleasing to see Matthew McConaughey pick up the best supporting actor award for his work in Magic Mike and Bernie. He has made quite the comeback recently, and has arguably been the most consistently good actor this year. Silver Linings Playbook, The Master, and Argo are among the notable films not to receive any awards.
