After curiously omitting Daniel Day-Lewis from their nominations, the Central Ohio Film Critics Association somewhat redeems itself by picking him as their winner - an initial oversight, I'm sure. Redemption also arrives in the form of a second place finish in Best Actress for Naomi Watts. Much love for Django Unchained, as it snags both top placings in Supporting Actor; Supporting Actress finished in a tie for second. But Moonrise Kingdom is the big winner here, losing not a single one of its nominations. Beasts of the Southern Wild didn't officially make the Top Ten, but it was one of eleven nominees, and logic would put in in eleventh, thus.
