By Armando

Once again, New York Film critics is first to come out of the awards season in awarding a front-runner. Last year, Zero Dark Thirty came out of the gate with a best picture win before it was officially reviewed by critics. That movie went on to receive 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, and a win for Sound Editing… and nothing else. So this may or may not be a good precedent for American Hustle, depending on how you look at it.
