Amour wins Best Film, The Master takes 4 prizes, including Best Actor... all at LAFCA!
This is the first critics group that did not give the top prize to Zero Dark Thirty, and I'm extremely happy with The Master winning 4 prizes. Also, Skyfall won an award, and The Dark Knight Rises got a mention. Awesome.
(Oddly, Lincoln and Life of Pi) both got shut out.
