New York Film Critics Circle

And we're off!  The NYFCC starts the exhaustive critics leg of the 2013 awards season with David O. Russell's American Hustle starting off the awards season in a major way with three key wins including Best Picture.  Surprising so far in the least, in so much as evident by the Gotham's going for the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis and today's reveal, perhaps this season will not be ruled by 12 Years a Slave, though NY did give it's director, Steve McQueen, the directing prize.  Missing out in NY, which may or may not be apropos of nothing, were films like Gravity, Nebraska, Captain Phillips, Philomena, August: Osage County, Before Midnight, Frances Ha and The Wolf of Wall Street (however with New York's early date, it's possible not everyone caught up with Scorsese's latest, which just started screening this past weekend.)
