It's pretty obvious that this lot, a new association to my knowledge, have their favourites! The Tree of Life, which picked up ten nominations to begin with, wins in seven categories, one of the biggest sweeps amongst all critics' groups this year. Their winners include Brad Pitt, who also wins for Best Actor for Moneyball, which also wins for Adapted Screenplay. And Certified Copy wins for both Foreign Film and Best Actress, which is Juliette Binoche's first nomination this year.
