The Vancouver Film Critics Circle has become the latest group to declare Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" the Best Picture of 2013. However, unlike most groups, they did not honor it with anything else.

As for the rest of the awards, there wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Alfonso Cuaron picked up another Best Director win for his brilliant "Gravity," while "Inside Llewyn Davis" also scored some big awards (Best Actor and Best Screenplay).
