Austin Film Critics Association Awards 2012.


Austin Film Critics Association awarded Zero Dark Thirty with Best Picture of the year award while they gave best director to Paul Thomas Anderson for The Master. Yet another back to back win for Looper in Original Screenplay category which makes me more happier than i was and its good for the movie itself. Daniel Day-Lewis didn't win Best Actor but instead they awarded Joaquin Phoenix for The Master. Argo won Adapted Screenplay, The Master won Cinematography and Cloud Atlas won Score. Very interesting.
