Respect and tribute to the Dublin and Utah Film Critics for voting their own minds (i.e., resisting the wave of critics-group capitulations to The Artist) by handing their Best Picture trophies to Nicholas Winding Refin‘s Drive. The Dubliners also awarded Winding Refn their Best Director prize, and they awarded Drive star Ryan Gosling as Best Actor. The Utah guys also gave their Best Cinematography prize to Drive‘s Newton Thomas Sigel.

The latter is double applauded for stepping outside the box and giving their Best Supporting Actress award to Win Win‘s Amy Ryan.
