Also handing out awards today was the Houston Film Critics Society. The group also went with "12 Years a Slave," bringing the film's Best Picture tally up to seven, for those keeping score at home. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sandra Bullock picked up top acting honors, while Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o maintained their impressive dominance in the supporting ranks. Check out the nominees here and the full list of winners below. And, again, keep track at The Circuit.

The Kansas City Film Critics Circle has tapped Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" as the year's best, falling in line with a number of regional critics as of late. The film dominated the group's choices, also picking up wins for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay. The group added a little more intrigue in the Best Actress field, though, by giving "Gravity" star Sandra Bullock her second critics award of the day (following Houston earlier this afternoon). Check out the full list of winners below, and as always, be sure to keep track of the season via The Circuit.

Have you ever wanted to talk to Peter Pan? More than a few people might want to chat with the J.M. Barrie creation, though they might hesitate to swap words with the version currently tearing up the joint on "Once Upon A Time" (Sun. at 8:00 p.m. on ABC). As Pan, Robbie Kay has gotten to take the iconic character to dark, dark places, and now he's poised to take down Storybrooke and all of our beloved fairytale characters with a killer spell in this week's midseason finale. I spoke to Kay about playing Pan, playing Henry, and why this week's midseason finale should be "very iconic."
The teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's first foray into filmmaking with the "Dark Knight" trilogy firmly in his rear view mirror landed today, and it's certainly a tease. Fleeting images of America's space race populate it, from Bell X-1 aircraft dropping into the atmosphere for collision course with the sound barrier to Walter Cronkite removing his glasses in awed disbelief after Neil Armstrong, the alien, set foot on the moon. Matthew McConaughey's voice over reflects a world that has left that innovation behind, and with it, the spirit to achieve wonders.
This is a thematic thread I'm very, very interested in, and where once "Interstellar" was a genre curiosity — well, more than that, a sci-fi excursion I was very much looking forward to from an immensely talented commercial filmmaker and a charismatic, revived leading man fronting an amazing cast — it has now taken on a whole new hue for me. This could be an extremely meaningful portrait at a time when NASA is seemingly funded just enough to keep the lights on, when that eagerness to "make the unknown known" has given way to global concerns that are often times necessary, others merely a distraction.
Garth Brooks’ comeback continues as his boxed set, “Blame It All On My Roots,” remains at No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200.
The Walmart-only exclusive picks up speed as it sells up to 175,000 copies in its third week of release, increasing from its first and second week numbers, according to Hits Daily Double.
However, Hits Daily Double put up its predictions before Beyonce surprised the world by dropping a 14-track album on iTunes Thursday night, so if Bey has her way she will outsell Brooks. But for now, we’ll to look at the top 10 without Beyonce in the picture.
Kelly Clarkson’s “Wrapped In Red” remains the hit Christmas album of the season, boasting 140,000 in sales for No. 2. One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” is No. 3 (110,000-120,000). The Robertsons’ “Duck The Halls” is No. 4 (115,000).
The week’s two debuts (other than Beyonce) take the next two spots as R. Kelly’s “Black Panties” bows at No. 5 (110,000) and Childish Gambino’s “Because The Internet” will launch at No. 6 (95,000).
Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” is No. 6 (75,000) and Katy Perry’s “Prism,” at No. 7 (60,000). Two more holiday titles —Mary J. Blige’s “A Mary Christmas” and Susan Boyle’s “Home For Christmas” are at No. 8 (55,000) and No. 9 (50,000) respectively. The soundtrack to “Frozen” heats up the No. 10 spot (50,000).
