The National Society of Film Critics tipped its cap to “Capote” over the weekend, honoring the United Artists pic as top film of the year.

Pic also won the actor nod for Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The NSFC announces its top three in each category, and “Capote” edged out “A History of Violence” and “2046” to take top honors.

The actress prize went to Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line”), the supporting actor nod went to Ed Harris (“A History of Violence”) and supporting actress went to Amy Adams (“Junebug”).
