Alliance of Women Film Journalists opts for 'Zero Dark Thirty'
No surprise here: "Zero Dark Thirty," which led the nominations for the Alliance of Women Film Journalists Awards last month, cleaned up when it came to winners. With eight awards, it won almost every category in which it was cited, with Kathryn Bigelow taking prizes for both Best Director and, obviously enough, Best Woman Director. "Beasts of the Southern Wild" took a trio of prizes while, among the groups quirkier categories, the Adam Sandler vehicle "That's My Boy" won the Hall of Shame award for misogynistic content.
