Two more regional critics groups weigh in.

Zero Dark Thirty Chastain

We are rapidly approaching critical mass -- or maybe that's terminal velocity --in our collection of regional critics group awards. Today we've got our sixteenth and seventeenth 2012 awards results for you: the winners from the Austin Film Critics Association and the Florida Film Critics Circle. Austin went with "Zero Dark Thirty," still the most popular choice amongst local critical organizations, while Florida selected "Argo" as its favorite film of 2012.

Austin and Florida critics did agree on a few categories. They saw eye to eye on matters of screenwriting, with both honoring Chris Terrio for his Best Adapted Screenplay for "Argo" and Rian Johnson for his Best Original Screenplay for "Looper." And Anne Hathaway continues to dream a dream of critical domination -- her turn in "Les Miserables" won both organizations' Best Supporting Actress awards.

Each group also honored a few local filmmakers; Austin gave a special award to University of Texas alum Matthew McConaughey for his outstanding year of supporting performances -- including one in Richard Linklater's "Bernie," which won the organization's Best Austin Film prize. Meanwhile, Florida selected as its Best Documentary "The Queen of Versailles," a film about a real estate mogul building America's largest private residence in Orlando.
