Gravity has soared to a record-setting seven Critics' Choice Awards, but 12 Years A Slave has been named best picture.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association presented its annual awards in Santa Monica, California, honouring many movies that earned Oscar nominations just hours earlier.

Awards for Gravity included best actress for Sandra Bullock, best director for Alfonso Cuaron and best sci-fi movie.

American Hustle won four prizes, including best comedy, best acting ensemble and best actress in a comedy for Amy Adams.

12 Years A Slave collected two other awards besides best picture: best supporting actress for Lupita Nyong'o and best adapted screenplay.

Other winners included Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club and Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine.
