Nevada Film Critics 2012

December 24th, 2012 - Graham Eley

Ben Affleck’s ‘Argo’ has received its fifth best film victory of the awards season from the Nevada Film Critics.  The Iranian hostage drama is currently in second place in the ‘best film’ tally behind Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and fittingly, the two films shared best director.  Going against the grain, John Hawkes and Helen Hunt won best actor and actress awards respectively for their performances in ‘The Sessions’. Hunt shared her award with Jennifer Lawrence of Silver Linings Playbook.
