Alexander Payne's The Descendants, a dysfunctional family tale starring George Clooney, topped the Florida Film Critics' awards, winning Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress (Shailene Woodley). Pedro Almodóvar's gender-bending drama The Skin I Live In, starring Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya, was the Best Foreign Language Film, while Martin Scorsese was the Best Director for the period fantasy adventure Hugo.

Two Oscar favorites, Michelle Williams and Michael Fassbender, won, respectively, Best Actress for Simon Curtis' My Week with Marilyn and Best Actor for Steve McQueen's Shame. Williams' portrayal of Marilyn Monroe during the making of Laurence Olivier's The Prince and the Showgirl has been a critics' favorite this awards season.

Critics' fave Albert Brooks was the Best Supporting Actor for Nicolas Winding Refn's thriller Drive, starring Ryan Gosling. The Best Original Screenplay Award went to another critical favorite, Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, a recreation of Hollywood's transition from silent to sound films. The black-and-white French production stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. See full list of the Florida Film Critics' winners below:

    I had the pleasure of an exclusive interview with Kenneth Branagh for “My Week With Marilyn”. We spoke about his time with Michelle and who he would want to play himself in 30 years when they shoot “My Week With Michelle”. http://bit.ly/tdO7I4
