"The Hurt Locker" Invades New York Film Critics Circle 


Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker" is the critics' favorite from coast to coast. Over the weekend, the LA Film Critics hailed the Iraq-war drama the Best Film of the year, and now, the New York Film Critics Circle gave "The Hurt Locker" the Best Picture award and Bigelow, the Best Director.

Meryl Streep won Best Actress for "Julie and Julia," while George Clooney won Best Actor for "Up in the Air" and his voice work for the animated "Fantastic Mr. Fox."

And the Best Supporting Acting categories are shaping up to be the most predictable ones. Mo'Nique won Best Supporting Actress for "Precious," while Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for "Inglourious Basterds."

The New York Observer film critic, Andrew Sarris, is receiving a Special Award.
