Utah Critics Choose "Gravity;" Nevada Sticks with "12 Years"

The Utah Film Critics Association has answered my prayers and given us a totally different set of winners, including a couple we've never seen, like The World's End for screenplay and Bill Nighy from About Time for Supporting Actor. Good on them for defying groupthink. Nevada's selections are more typical, except for some affection for August: Osage County, where Meryl Streep picks up her first critics prize.
