The Envelope‘s Tom O’Neil has the behind-the-scenes, numerical breakdown about how Capote won the National Society of Critics Best Picture award. It went down complicated, but David Cron- enberg’s A History of Violence got the most initial votes for the first three or four (or was it five?) ballots, but on the sixth ballot the 57 members — 26 attending, the rest voting by proxy — finally gave it to Capote over Violence by a one-vote margin. The 5 and 1/2 hour meeting happened at Sardi’s restaurant in New York City. Congrats to Miller and the team for the Capote win, and especially to Philip Seymour Hoffman for his first-ballot Best Actor triumph.
