“The Tree of Life” tops with Online Film Critics Society – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” led the Online Film Critics Society’s year-end voting with seven nominations, so it’s no real surprise that his meditative drama emerged victorious when the group tallied its votes.

The film took home the prize for Best Picture as well as trophies for Best Director (Terrence Malick), Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Chastain), Best Editing and Best Cinematography.

Here’s the most surprising fact: No other film won more than one award.

The other three acting winners were Michael Fassbender winning Best Actor for his performance in “Shame;” Tilda Swinton’s work in “We Need to Talk About Kevin” won the award for Best Actress; and Christopher Plummer received the Best Supporting Actor prize for his work in “Beginners.”
