Two films split the most wins, with 3, and both taking big prizes. Those films come from seperate centuries, but both with the premise of war and turmoil at their heart. Those films are "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty". A few semi surprises also, particularly Rachel Weisz for the little-seen but very good "The Deep Blue Sea", and Matthew McConaughey taking a major prize, period. Granted, he was very good in last year's "The Lincoln Lawyer", but he's awarded here for not just 1, but 2 different performances. The winners of the New York Film Critics for 2012 are...
