The New York Film Critics got together today to give their top honors in the year in films. It took almost half a day as we started to get the feel for Oscar frontrunners from the big name critics.

Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty and Steven Sielberg’s Lincoln took home the major awards, but the NYFCC didn’t leave us without some surprises.

Matthew McConaughey won Best Supporting Actor for his dual role in Bernie, which I hated, and Magic Mike, which was somewhat decent. Then Rachel Weisz topped Jessica Chastain for Best Actress for her work in The Deep Blue Sea.

Hit the jump for full results and more.

Take these results with a grain of salt, but it does start to shape the awards picture.

I’ll be seeing Zero Dark Thirty on Thursday and hopefully Django Unchained and Les Miserables in the coming weeks. With those juggernauts out the way we should be able to start giving predictions and assumptions for the gold statues come February.

Here are the full results:
