37th LA Film Critics Association Awards

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association had also just announced their winners.

"The Descendants" may have achieved the Best Picture award but it seemed like the Association very much favoured Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" as the film gathered a few critical wins in Best Director and Best Cinematography besides being the runner-up for Best Picture. Also of interesting note was the Best Actress that was awarded to South Korean actress Yun Jung-Hee for her performance in Lee Chang-Dong's "Poetry".
