'12 Years a Slave' Gets Big Wins From Houston and Kansas City Film Critics


Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano


The slavery drama starring Chiwetel Ejiofor collects at least three prizes; Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

"12 Years a Slave" continues to show its domination at awards events conducted by film critics, weeks leading to the upcoming 86th Annual Academy Awards. This time around, the Steve McQueen slavery drama wins the title of 2013's Best Picture from both Houston and Kansas City Film Critics.

Both of the film critics circles also agree that "12 Years a Slave" male lead Chiwetel Ejiofor is Best Actor, his co-star Lupita Nyong'o is Best Supporting Actress, and "Gravity" beauty Sandra Bullock is Best Actress.

For Best Supporting Actor, the Kansas City Critics favor Michael Fassbender ("12 Years a Slave"), while the Houston circle chooses cross-dressing Jared Leto in "Dallas Buyers Club". For Best Director, Houston Film Critics picks Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity") but Kansas City Critics couldn't decide between Cuaron and Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave").
