San Francisco critics name Christie Best Actress

This is k_obrien, the new kid, so be nice.

Tonight the San Francisco Film Critics Circle Awards have honored Julie Christie (Away from Her) with the Best Actress award over Marion Cotillard. I'd feel disheartened by this point, except that they've got an odd mix of winners this year (below):

Best Film:
The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford by Andrew Dominik

Best Foreign Language Film:
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Julian Schnabel

Best Documentary:
No End in Sight by Charles Ferguson

Best Director:
Joel and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men

Best Actor:
George Clooney for Michael Clayton

Best Actress:
Julie Christie for Away from Her

Best Supporting Actor:
Casey Affleck for The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford

Best Supporting Actress:
Amy Ryan for Gone Baby Gone

Best Original Screenplay:
Tamara Jenkins for The Savages

Best Adapted Screenplay:
Sarah Polley for Away from Her

We'll be keeping an eye out this week for the Golden Globe, Broadcast Film Critics Association, Chicago Film Critics Association, and American Film Institute honorees.
