Rachel Weisz and Daniel Day-Lewis honoured

Tuesday December 4, 2012

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Day-Lewis have been honoured with the New York Film Critics Circle's best actor awards.

Rachel earnt the gong for her portrayal in period drama The Deep Blue Sea, whilst Daniel scooped three of the prizes available for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's latest production of the same name.

Kathryn Bigelow, who was given the best film Academy Award in 2010 for film Hurt Locker came top of the board again as she won the best film of 2012 award for docudrama Zero Dark Thirty.

"Zero Dark Thirty confirms the massive talent of Kathryn Bigelow," said NYFCC chairman Joshua Rothkopf, a critic for Time Out New York.

"Zero Dark Thirty is a very important movie. It's not triumphant and it's still a very significant dramatisation of an important event. And we were knocked out by the film."

The New York Film Critics Circle, a body of 35 New York-based critics founded in 1935, announced their annual vote on Twitter over a period of hours. Awards will be handed out at a ceremony on January 7.
