Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Awards 2013

12 Years a Slave and Gravity were the big winners at the DC critics awards. Their nominations were announced earlier but I couldn't post them. 12 Years a Slave won picture, actor, supporting actress, adapted screenplay, score and ensemble prizes. While Gravity won director, editing and cinematography. Her is very much winning original screenplay awards. First time winners includes Blackfish and The Broken Circle Breakdown in documentary and foreign language film sections. Also a big thumbs up for awarding Tye Sheridan in the youth performance category for Mud.
