This was news to me, but apparently Indiana has their own group as well, the Indiana Film Journalists Association. The announced their winners and runner-ups, and taking the top prize is the critic darling of the year to date, The Artist. A few new winners, particularly a good amount of love for Win Win, which I very much enjoyed. Nice to see a runner-up for Winnie the Pooh in animated too. Full winners below...
