Okay, so "The Master" may end up losing money for Harvey Weinstein and Megan Ellison, but it did earn it's fair share of acclaim, and three Oscar nominations for its lead trio of Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams is nothing sneeze at either. And while one can sit around and talk about why or why not the film didn't catch on the way "There Will Be Blood" did, Paul Thomas Anderson is already moving with "Inherent Vice," reteaming with Phoenix after Robert Downey Jr. passed. And though fans have patiently awaited longer and longer gaps between PTA films, it looks like his next is gearing up very quickly.

With essentially only the Oscars left to lavish praise upon 2012's films, it seems the opaque, askew nature of Paul Thomas Anderson's “The Master” has left voters with just acting nominations to fully commend. Not that Harvey Weinstein hasn't put his entire support behind the picture to garner more; quite the opposite, but according to him, awards recognition is not the only realm the film will come up short.

Joaquin Phoenix didn't exactly start off the awards season on the right foot, however, he's certainly beloved, his performance in "The Master" is titanic stuff, and he was still rewarded by his peers with an Oscar nomination for Paul Thomas Anderson's film. And while we'll leave it to the prognosticators to determine his chances against Daniel Day-Lewis in "Lincoln," Phoenix has already come out on top in one competition.

With the focus this weekend on Park City with the Sundance Film Festival now in full swing, it might be easy to forget we're still in the midst of the awards season. And even though we're nearing the finishing line, with the Golden Globes already handed out, and a few more major guild awards and the Indie Spirits to come before the Oscars are awarded, critics circles are still getting their two cents in. And the latest to hand down their verdict on the year in film of 2012 are from the U.K., with the London Critics' Circle Awards honoring their winners today. And a big favorite of the season made a considerable impression.

2012 is so two weeks ago, right? Well, forgive my tardiness, but I was doing my best to catch up with as much as possible before putting this list together, but even then some films missed out. "Once Upon A Time In Anatolia," "Compliance," "Sleepwalk With Me," "Nobody Walks," "No" and a handful more...I wish I could have seen them, but it just didn't happen.

With the book now closed on 2012 films and awards season in full swing, we thought this would be a good opportunity to dive a little deeper into one of our favorite films of last year, Paul Thomas Anderson’s most recent opus, “The Master.” Though not your typical awards bait, the film has nonetheless managed to rack up an impressive number of accolades including being named the Best Film of 2012 by Sight & Sound, Rolling Stone and the Village Voice among others.

We're generally anti-navelgazing here at The Playlist, but being the end of the year, it can't really be avoided. As we continue to take a look back at the cinematic year of 2012, we're trying to shake things up and keep things fresh outside of the usual Best/Worst lists. This year saw The Playlist making a presence around the world at more than a handful of festivals. And while you've already read our reviews and news, we thought we'd give you a taste of the experience of attending these festivals. Even if you can't make Cannes or board a flight to Marrakech, we hope this helps in translating what it's like to run around a foreign country with nothing more than a laptop and a love of cinema. So, without further ado, here are six personal highlights from the various film festivals in 2012 we attended.
