Business as usual for the Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association today, as they named Tom McCarthy's Spotlight Best Picture of 2015. Best Director was a twist, though, as The Revenant's Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu won his first award of the season, and quite possibly not his last. After a busy couple of days of critics awards announcements, and with several more yet to come, there's relatively little to report tbh.
