New York Film Critics Are 'Happy' With 'Milk'

Best Picture: 
Best Director: Mike Leigh, Happy-Go-Lucky
Best Actor: Sean Penn, Milk
Best Actress: Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky
Best Supporting Actor: Josh Brolin, Milk
Best Supporting Actress: Penélope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Best Screenplay: Jenny Lumet, Rachel Getting Married
Best Cinematographer: Anthony Dod Mantle, Slumdog Millionaire
Best Animated Film: Wall-E
Best First Film: Courtney Hunt, Frozen River
Best Foreign Film: 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Best Documentary: Man on Wire

I don't believe Happy-Go-Lucky deserves those wins. It was a great movie but there were better directed/acted films and NYC really does hate The Dark Knight. Zero nominations. Oh well, I can't wait to check out Milk this weekend.
