The Vancouver Film Critics Circle (VFCC) announced its awards on January 7th, 2013 with giving away the Best Film award to ZERO DARK THIRTY, directed and co-produced by Kathryn Bigelow who also won the Best Director award. The surprise is that Joaquin Phoenix won the award for Best Actor for his brilliant performance in THE MASTER. The shocking thing is Amy Adams’ win in the Best Supporting Actress category.
