Critics hail Inside Llewyn Davis

The National Society of Film Critics has chosen the Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis as the best picture of 2013 at its annual meeting in New York.

The society's 56 voting members are movie critics from around the US.

They held their 48th annual awards voting meeting at the Film Society of Lincoln Centre on Saturday.

The group also presented its best director award to the directors of Inside Llewyn Davis, Joel and Ethan Coen. The film is the story of a fictional folk singer in Greenwich Village in 1961.

The group named Oscar Isaac best actor for Inside Llewyn Davis, while Cate Blanchett was named best actress for the Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine.

The meeting was dedicated to the memory of two members who died in 2013: Roger Ebert and Stanley Kauffmann.
