Not a group with which I'm familiar until now, the North Carolina Film Critics Association show little love for Argo, unlike most of the other smaller groups. Despite Zero Dark Thirty apparently not being screened in time for members (yet also apparently being screened in time in the end), it receives a lot of love - as do The Master, Moonrise Kingdom and Silver Linings Playbook. An interesting Supporting Actor lineup, and two separate nominations for Anne Hathaway. Winners on the 15th.
