The San Diego Film Critics Society has just announced "Her" as the year's best film. Spike Jonze's latest picked up three awards total, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Score. "12 Years a Slave" led the way with Tuesday's nominations announcement, but was ultimately shut out of the winning pool entirely. Oscar Isaac ("Inside Llewyn Davis") and Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") won top acting honors, while Matthew McConaughey received a special prize for his body of work in 2013. Check out the full list of winners below, and as always, keep track of the season via The Circuit.

This morning's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nominations announcement wasn't going to have a lot of surprises. At this stage, most of the players are known. It's a dense race, however, so the only question was, who was going to get squeezed out?
One of the defining traits of The Quality TV Deluge of 2013 has been the arrival of so many impressive new series to add to a landscape that already included the shows of HBO, AMC, FX, et al. The likes of "Orange Is the New Black," "Masters of Sex," the different Sundance series, "The Americans," and more added so much vitality to television — and so many indelible performances, like Tatiana Maslany playing a half dozen roles on "Orphan Black."
If showbiz awards are designed in part as a historical record of what a particular year was like, then today's Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations didn't do a great job of telling the story of 2013. It featured most of the usual suspects(*) like "Breaking Bad" and "Boardwalk Empire" and "Modern Family" and "Downton Abbey," and as a result there was virtually no room to recognize newcomers.
