San Diego Critics’ Awards 2012

December 12th, 2012 - Graham Eley

‘Argo’ has been a strong presence in securing nominations during the awards season without looking like converting many into wins.  That changed with the San Diego Critics’ Awards when it bagged best film, director, editor and adapted screenplay.

 

Michelle Williams’ best actress victory for her performance in ‘Take This Waltz’ follows yesterday’s nomination in the same category for the Detroit Film Critics’ awards and may indicate a growing momentum.

 

There was no surprise in the best actor category with the award going to Daniel Day-Lewis for ‘Lincoln’.
