SD Film Critics Society announces awards

December 14, 2010 - 7:52 pm

This is the fourth year I’ve voted in the San Diego Film Critics Society ‘s year-end awards, and I’ve never seen it get as contentious as it did today. Still, I think we came up with a very interesting list, one that stands out from most. There were an awful lot of categories that were decided by just one vote. I think our greatest surprise wasn’t Best Film–which was a surprise, but one that I’m happy with–but Best Actor. The award went to someone you wouldn’t expect to win for a film you probably didn’t see. But it’s a great performance in a film you definitely should see. Some of the films have yet to hit San Diego, but they will in the coming weeks. I’ll tease you with the Best Film here–the rest are after the jump.
