Could "Inside Llewyn Davis" have a few more songs left in its awards season campaign? After a week that left its Oscar prospects in serious question, after being shut out by both the PGA and WGA nominations, the latest from the Coens has scored some big honors at the National Society Of Film Critics Awards.

The film won the major prizes of Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor while also taking Best Cinematography, leaping over some major competition in the process. Elsewhere, the love was spread around with some of the notable wins including: James Franco for Best Supporting Actor for "Spring Breakers"; Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") and Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle") for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively; and a tie in the documentary category for "At Berkeley" and "The Act Of Killing."
