Here's what's being talked about today in pop culture:

• "Zero Dark Thirty," the drama about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, has been named the year's best movie by the New York Film Critics Circle. It also won best director (Kathryn Bigelow) and cinematography (Greig Fraser). "Lincoln" won three awards, for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tony Kushner's screenplay. Other acting nods went to Rachel Weisz ("The Deep Blue Sea") and Matthew McConaughey ("Magic Mike" and "Bernie"). [Vulture]

• Have you seen the new posters for "Man of Steel" and "Star Trek Into Darkness"? You can't be a self-respecting movie geek if you haven't formed an opinion on them. [Entertainment Weekly, twice]

• The shortlist for the documentary-feature Oscar is out, with 15 titles. Among the best are "The Invisible War," "How to Survive a Plague," "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry," "The House I Live In" and "Chasing Ice" (all of which, by the way, debuted at Sundance last year).
