New York - The New York Film Critics Circle have named Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty the best film of 2012.

Bigelow, an Oscar winner for her 2008 Iraq war film The Hurt Locker, also won best director for her grim, journalist docu-drama of the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

But the critics group also cast a strong vote for Seven Spielberg's Lincoln, bestowing it with three awards: Daniel Day-Lewis for best actor, Sally Field for best supporting actress and Tony Kushner for best screenplay.

Best actress went to Rachel Weisz for The Deep Blue Sea while Matthew McConaughey was named best supporting actor for his roles in Magic Mike and Bernie.

The awards, announced on Monday, will be handed out at a ceremony 7 January.

Zero Dark Thirty is set for release in the US on 11 January 2013 and in South African cinemas on 15 February.
