Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” picked up another trophy from critics calling it the year’s best movie.

The prestigious New York Film Critics Circle picked the hunt-for-Bin-Laden film as Best Film Monday, also handing awards to Bigelow for Best Director and Greig Fraser for Best Cinematography.

“Lincoln” was the other big winner, taking awards for Best Screenplay (Tony Kushner), Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis) and Best Supporting Actress (Sally Field.) Other acting awards went to Rachel Weisz for “The Deep Blue Sea” and, in a pleasant surprise, Matthew McConaughey, who took home Best Supporting Actor for his parts in both “Bernie” and “Magic Mike.”

“The Central Park Five” was named Best Non-Fiction Film, while another documentary, David France’s “How to Survive a Plague,” was the critics’ chose as Best First Film.
