Another Win for 'The Artist'

"The Artist" took the top prize from the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, but it was Martin Scorsese who snagged directing honors for "Hugo" when the winners were announced today. Alexander Payne didn't go home empty handed, however--his script for "The Descendants" won Best Adapted Screenplay, an honor he shares with the writing team of Jim Rash (a.k.a. Dean Pelton on "Community") and Nat Faxon (a.k.a. the voice of Jeremy on "Allen Gregory.")

Still, it looks like the black-and-white silent movie is still the one to beat for Best Picture. In other news, Albert Brooks got a nice bump for Supporting Actor for "Drive" and the wonderful Octavia Spencer landed her first major critic's award for Supporting Actress for "The Help."

Full list after the jump.
