More critics groups pick 'Milk' and 'Slumdog Millionaire'

December 16, 2008 |  9:57 am

The film critics groups continue their love-a-thon with Sally Hawkins as best actress, but — surprise — the San Diego journos just picked Kate Winslet in "The Reader," not "Revolutionary Road." Penelope Cruz may have dominated early critics' prizes in the supporting race, but now Marisa Tomei is wrestling laurels away. No shockeroo that San Francisco's critics heaped awards on "Milk," including best pic, director, actor and screenplay. After all, the film is set in America's West Coast gay capital. Other awardees:

Best director: Gus Van Sant, "Milk"
Best actor (tie): Sean Penn, "Milk" and Mickey Rourke, "The Wrestler"
Best actress: Sally Hawkins, "Happy-Go-Lucky"
Best supporting actor: Heath Ledger, "The Dark Knight"
Best supporting actress: Marisa Tomei, "The Wrestler"
Original screenplay: Dustin Lance Black, "Milk"
Adapted screenplay: Peter Morgan, "Frost/Nixon"
