Detroit Film Critics Society announces winners

Colin Firth, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Amy Adams take top prizes in acting categories

by City Pulse Staff

The Detroit Film Critics Society has announced the Best of 2010 nominees and winners in eight categories. It's the fourth year the group — whose members include City Pulse arts and culture editor James Sanford — has awarded honors to outstanding films, filmmakers and performers. The 20 critics who make up the DFCS live and work within a 150-mile radius of Detroit, including the cities of Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Flint.


"The Social Network" was chosen as best picture, with Colin Firth taking best actor for "The King's Speech" (opening in Lansing Dec. 25) and Jennifer Lawrence claiming best actress for "Winter's Bone" (now on DVD). Other honorees included Danny Boyle as best director for "127 Hours" and Christian Bale and Amy Adams as best supporting actor and actress for their work in "The Fighter" (opening today).'


Each critic submitted his or her top five picks in the categories of best picture, best director, best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, best ensemble and best breakthrough performance. Each entry was given a point value and the top five nominees were sent out on a final ballot last week.


The 2011 voting will include two additional categories, best documentary and best screenplay. The DFCS is www.detroitfilmcritics.com.
