The first major award weekend yielded honors for directors Susanne Bier (Love is All You Need), Haifaa al-Mansour (Wadjda), Sarah Polley (Stories We Tell), Jehane Noujaim (The Square). 

Results from the European Film Awards (that continent's Oscars), the Boston Society of Film Critics, the LA Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online, the British Independent Film Awards, and the IDA Documentary Awards have been flooding over the last 48 hours. In addition to those filmmakers named above, recognition went to screenwriters Nicole Holofcener (who wrote and helmed Enough Said) and co-writer Julie Delpy (Before Midnight).

For those in front of the camera, award favorites Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color), and Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) picked up multiple trophies. 

Lifetime achievement awards were presented to Catherine Deneuve and Julie Walters from the European Film Awards and the British Independent Film Awards, respectively. Deneuve didn't seem particularly thrilled by the recognition, declaring at the podium, "To achieve life is to mean that you are dead. It's not an award you give to someone who is still alive." Still, she was gracious enough to send some love toward the next generation of stars, including Jennifer Lawrence and Blue is the Warmest Color actresses Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux.
