So in addition to the results from last week, what do these results mean?

The Hurt Locker and Up in the Air are still very much neck and neck. Kathryn Bigelow, Christoph Waltz, and Mo'Nique are the overwhelming critical favorites with Anna Kendrick being the only one putting up a fight against the Mo'Nique express. Carey Mullligans pulls away from Meryl Streep with Gabourey Sidibe making a splash. George Clooney pads his lead, but Colin Firth and Jeremy Renner are looking to challenge. Finally, Fantastic Mr. Fox is more than holding its own against Pixar's Up.

A couple more critic groups are set to chime in before the end of the year. Stay tuned.
