Milk Sweeps 2008 San Francisco Critics Circle Awards

The San Francisco Critics Circle (which I'm sadly not a part of) has announced their 2008 Award Winners:

Best Picture: MilkBest Director: Gus Van Sant, "Milk"Best Original Screenplay: Dustin Lance Black, "Milk"Best Adapted Screenplay: Peter Morgan, "Frost/Nixon"Best Actor: TIE: Sean Penn, "Milk"/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"Best Foreign Language Film: "Let the Right One In"Best Documentary: "My Winnipeg"Best Cinematography: Wally Pfister, "The Dark Knight"

The results are a little unsurprising considering Milk is a hometown film, and San Francisco is a liberal city which usually rewards a cause over a story (I say this as a liberal living in San Francisco).
