The New York Film Critics Circle has awarded best film, direction and cinematography to Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty’.  Another serious award season contender, Stephen Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’, picked up best actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), supporting actress (Sally Field) and screenplay (Tony Kushner).  David France’s ‘How to Survive a Plague’, winner of best documentary at the Gotham awards, continued to build momentum by taking the best debut feature.  And there was another win for Michael Haneke’s ‘Amour’ as the top foreign language film.
