'Inside Llewyn Davis' takes top National Society of Film Critics honor

The Joel and Ethan Coen-directed Inside Llewyn Davis may not be too widely released in theaters across the country, but it is having no trouble racking up award after award. On Saturday, the film won four awards from the National Society of Film Critics, including Best Picture.

56 eligible NSFC members (minus a few who hadn't seen every film) gathered to vote for the winners of the 48th annual round of awards using a weighted ballot system. No nominations were put forth and there is no formal celebration; winners are simply sent scrolls marking the achievement.

Inside Llewyn Davis' other awards include Best Director for the Coen brothers, Best Actor for Oscar Isaac's work in the title role, and Bruno Delbonnel for Best Cinematography. The film was also nominated to Best Screenplay (done by the directing duo) but lost out to Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and Ethan Hawke for Before Midnight.

Cate Blanchett is the Best Actress to Isacc's Best Actor for her role in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine. Jennifer Lawrence, who has been receiving rave reviews and Oscar buzz for playing Rosalyn Rosenfeld in American Hustle, received the honor for Best Supporting Actress. In what may come as a surprise to many, James Franco won best Supporting Actor for his role in the wild comedic drama Spring Breakers. However, Franco has actually received seven other nominations for the part and two wins from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and San Francisco Film Critics Circle.

Davis, meanwhile, has racked up over 50 nominations from various film festivals and organizations and is nominated for three Golden Globes next Sunday, including Best Motion Picture - Musical of Comedy, Best Actor for Isaac, and Best Original Song. The film follows a week in the life of Llewyn Davis, an struggling folk musician in early-60s Greenwich Village.
