San Francisco Critics Live for The Tree of Life while Gary Oldman Gains Ground

San Francisco has always marched to the beat of its own drummer and the critics of the city are no different as they announced Gary Oldman Best Actor for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. The film also won for Best Adapted Screenplay giving Oldman and the Focus feature some much needed heat. Also garnering kudos was The Tree of Life.
