Yet more good news for Argo from smaller critics groups - there's a point to be made in the success it's had over Zero Dark Thirty, and I don't need to make it. Not particularly inspiring picks here, although that's usually going to be the case this late in the season. Come January, you tend to need a starry red carpet do to ignite anyone's interest. Still, props for being one of the few groups this year to pick Holy Motors as the Best Foreign Language Film.
