Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx in ‘Django Unchained’

*“Django Unchained” has already received recognition in the film world, and it hasn’t even been released to the public yet. The Black Film Critics Circle (BFCC) voted Christoph Waltz Best supporting actor in the new Quentin Tarantino flick.

“Zero Dark Thirty” was chosen as the Best Film of 2012.  Others recognized included “Flight,” “Les Miserables,” and “Argo.” The organization awarded prizes in 13 categories including best foreign film, best animated film, and ensemble.

“This year was a very interesting mix,” says Mike Sargent, co-president, BFCC. ” A number of films, though some not commercially successful addressed perspectives and issues seldom given light. Making our Special mention category more important this year than ever before.” “In the main categories, we chose the films that we felt most resonated and illustrated the continued ability of Hollywood to entertain, and move audiences. Congratulations to all of the winners.”
