Not seen Life of Pi (or Amour) which I'm sure is brilliantly directed and probably would be my winner but here it is anyway:

1 David O Russell
2 Steven Spielberg
3 Benh Zeitlin

Not a great year really but I like O Russell movies in general and as I've said before, he really knows how to direct an ensemble so would go for him. The others aren't particurlarly amazing I guess I can appreciate them from an objective point of view in terms of film-making, just not my cup of tea.

I wish both Affleck & Bigelow made the cut, their films were so tense at times *-*

And as always, here's all my winners:
Best Picture: Silver Linings Playbook
Best Director: David O. Russell - Silver Linings Playbook
Best Actor: Hugh Jackman - Les Miserables
Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence - Silver Linings Playbook
Best Supporting Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman - The Master
Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway - Les Miserables
Best Original Screenplay: Zero Dark Thirty
Best Adapted Screenplay: Silver Linings Playbook
Best Animated Feature Film: Wreck-It Ralph
Best Original Score: Lincoln
Best Original Song: "Skyfall" from Skyfall
Best Production Design: Lincoln
Best Cinematography: Lincoln
Best Makeup and Hairstyling: Hitchcock
Best Costume Design: Mirror Mirror
Best Film Editing: Argo
Best Visual Effects: The Avengers

Silver Linings Playbook - 4
Lincoln - 3
Les Miserables - 2
Zero Dark Thirty - 1
Argo - 1
The Master - 1
Wreck It Ralph - 1
Skyfall - 1
Mirror Mirror - 1
The Avengers - 1
Hitchcock - 1


I didn't like Lincoln much at all but in the technical aspects, it was very good I guess... SLP/Les Mis/Argo were my top 3 awards movies from this year.
