Even as it struggles to win awards outside of Picture and Original Screenplay, Spotlight continues to hoover up in those categories. It wins another with the Indiana Film Journalists Association, and once again stalls outside of those awards, save for a win for Mark Ruffalo in Supporting Actor. Have a look at the winners below, which include some surprises characteristic of this idiosyncratic group of critics, and an award for Vocal / Motion Capture Performance - a fine idea imo!
