Detroit critics name ‘Her’ the year’s best, hand Brie Larson two awards

The Detroit Film Critics Society mixed things up a little with their awards, giving Spike Jonze’s “Her” another Best Picture win, but also going so far as to hand Scarlett Johansson their Best Supporting Actress prize for her voice work in  the film. They also went against the grain in Best Actress, giving the win to Brie Larson for indie darling “Short Term 12” — then doubling up by handing her their Best Breakthrough Performance award too. Larger-scale filmmaking muscled in with a Best Director win for “Gravity.” Full list after the jump.
