Kansas City critics announced their winners for this year. "12 Years a Slave" was the big winner with six awards including best picture. There was a tie in the director category with the winners being both Alfonso Cuaron and Steve McQueen. Sandra Bullock yet again won another award from critics, alarming! (I mean for Blanchett).
