2013 African-American Film Critics Association winners
In this banner year for black filmmakers, the African-American Film Critics' Association -- which doesn't exclusively honor black-themed cinema, but leans heavily in that direction -- was always going to be spoilt for choice. No surprise, then, to see "12 Years a Slave" take Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Breakout Performance for Lupita Nyong'o, while their Best Picture runner-up, "Lee Daniels' The Butler," won acting awards for Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey. Sandra Bullock and Jared Leto round out the top prizewinners, while it's nice to see Andrew Dosunmu's superb "Mother of George" recognized further down. Full list after the jump.
