"Silver Linings Playbook," "Beasts of the Southern Wild" lead Georgia Film Critics nominations

The Georgia Film Critics Association has announced their nominees for 2012 and while the usual suspects from the Academy Awards and various other critics groups lead the way, a few surprises can be found. "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" received the most nominations with eight each. Two of the nominations credited to "Beasts," however, are actually Breakthrough nominations for Benh Zeitlin and Quvenzhané Wallis. "Amour," "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty" each garnered six nods, while "The Master" and "Rust & Bone" earned five a piece.

The success outside of Marion Cotillard's nomination for "Rust & Bone" marks a departure from many other critics groups. Controversial documentary "This Is Not a Film" earned three nominations in the categories of Best Film, Best Foreign Film and Best Documentary. Other highlights include two cinematography nominations for Greig Fraser ("Killing Them Softly" and "Zero Dark Thirty") and screenplay nominations for "21 Jump Street," "The Cabin in the Woods" and "Sound of My Voice." The Georgia-lensed "Lawless" earned two nominations in the Best Song category. 

The Breakthrough Award shortlist consists of directors Zal Batmanglij ("Sound of My Voice"), Bart Layton ("The Imposter") and Benh Zeitlin ("Beasts of the Southern Wild"); actors Scoot McNairy ("Argo," "Killing Them Softly," "Promised Land") and Quvenzhané Wallis ("Beasts of the Southern Wild"); and finally, screenwriter Derek Connolly ("Safety Not Guaranteed").
