St. Louis, Florida and Utah critics announce winners

Where's the Midlothian or Scottish critics then? The Film Critics Associations for Utah, Florida and St. Louis have announced their winners for this year, and there's not really any surprises to be had.

Tell me if any of this rings a bell and if you think there's really any leeway in the Oscar winners. If there is, it might just be because they want to be different from the majority of award announcements before them!

You know to be fair there are some variations, but to sit down and chart the results across the board I think we'd find that the big awards are looking to be all closely run with a couple of nominees really in with a chance, and it not being too hard to pick a winner. What do you think? If the Oscars were all about this Associations results I think perhaps it might be decided already.
