Just when we said earlier today that it looked like the critics were turning away from "Zero Dark Thirty" as the year's best film, the film critics down in Austin, Texas proved us wrong. The Austin Film Critics Association just announced their winners for the best in film in 2012, and they named the Kathryn Bigelow-directed movie as their top film.

Austin also picked Joaquin Phoenix, "The Master", and Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook", as their top actor and actress. In the supporting categories, Austin liked Christoph Waltz, "Django Unchained", and Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables", and they gave Paul Thomas Anderson, "The Master", his third win of the year for Best Director.
