In the Best Actress category, Jessica Chastain was chosen for her performance in “Zero Dark Thirty.” “Zero Dark Thirty” was also up for Best Film and Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow).

As a finalist in four of IFCA's categories, “Silver Linings Playbook” was shut out of each one. The film was up for Best Film, Best Actor (Bradley Cooper), Best Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) and Best Supporting Actor (Robert DeNiro).
