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: Milk

Best 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).
