Oklahoma Film Critics 2012

December 24th, 2012 - Graham Eley

Ben Affleck’s Argo has made a late surge in the critics’ awards with Oklahoma joining Nevada in honouring it with best film, taking the film’s tally of wins in this category to six, just three behind the early pace setter, Kathryn Bigelow’s controversial Zero Dark Thirty.  It was one of three awards that came Argo’s way with the Iranian hostage drama claiming best director, which it shared with Zero Dark Thirty in Nevada, and best adapted screenplay (Chris Terrio).  Jessica Chastain brought Zero Dark Thirty its only success, taking best actress in a category where she is embroiled in a close contest with Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) for the Oscar.
