NY Film Critics love The Artist, Moneyball and Meryl Streep

After postponing voting to screen Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the New York Film Critics Circle have named their favourites of 2011:


- French silent film The Artist picks up Best Picture and Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius
- Meryl Streep wins Best Actress, again, this time for The Iron Lady. Her fifth win off the NY Film Critics
- Brad Pitt wins Best Actor for his turns in both Moneyball and Tree of Life
- Pitt's co-star, and the year's biggest breakout star by far, Jessica Chastain wins Best Supporting Actress for Tree of the Life, The Help and Take Shelter. 
- Drive's Albert Brooks deservedly wins Best Supporting Actor for his gangster turn.
- And Aaron Sorkin continue his winning streak (after last year's The Social Network) by winning Best Screenplay for Moneyball, together with co-writer Steve Zallian.
