Houston Film Critics Society Awards 2013


Houston Film Critics Society announced their winners for this year. "12 Years a Slave" won the best picture prize while Alfonso Cuaron won best director for "Gravity". These splits between both the movies are happening quite often, I wonder if this is how it is going to turn out at the Oscars as well? Both these films were the big winners here, each won four awards. Sandra Bullock was awarded actress prize, "The Hunt" won best foreign language film which is great and "Please Mr. Kennedy" from "Inside Llewyn Davis" was awarded best original song award.
