The Florida Film Critics Circle have selected "The Departed" as its Best Film of the Year, while naming Martin Scorsese as Top Director. The leading acting categories went according to what many others have said so far this awards season: Helen Mirren for "The Queen" and Forest Whitaker for "The Last King of Scotland."

Jennifer Hudson of "Dreamgirls" won the Pauline Kael Breakout Award. Golden Orange for Outstanding Contribution to Film went to Billy Corben and Alfred Spellman, the director and producer of the documentaries, "Cocaine Cowboys" and "Raw Deal: A Question of Consent."

The Florida Film Critics Circle comprises 14 writers from statewide publications, including The Miami Herald's Rene Rodriguez and Connie Ogle.
