Masterful ‘The Master’ headlines Kansas City Film Critics awards

By Steve Crum

Director Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master was chosen Best Picture of 2012 at yesterday’s (Dec. 16) KCFCC awards voting. In fact, the film garnered a trifecta, with Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Best Supporting Actor as well as Anderson’s Original Screenplay. 

Ang Li received Best Director for Life of Pi, which prompted my groaner-quip, “Pi r won.” I was among 32 vote-casting film critics, representing KC mass media outlets, who are members of the Kansas City Film Critics Circle, the oldest major city film critic organization in the nation.
