The Tree of Life Lauded by Online Film Critics

The Tree of Life picked up five important awards from the Online Film Critics Society this week. The film took home the prize for Best Picture, Best Director (Terrence Malick), Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Chastain), Best Editing and Best Cinematography. It was the only movie to earn more than one award.

Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk about Kevin) and Michael Fassbender (Shame) won Best Actress and Best Actor, respectively. The remaining acting honor went to Christopher Plummer as Best Supporting Actor in Beginners.

Special awards were given to Jessica Chastain as breakout performer of the year and to Martin Scorsese in honor of his work and dedication to the pursuit of film preservation. (Scorsese founded The Film Foundation, a nonprofit organization designed to promote film preservation.)
