Malik Bendjelloul’s Searching for Sugar Man (pictured) continued its awards run momentum last night (January 10) by picking up Best Documentary prize at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Santa Monica.

The recognition from the Broadcast Film Critics Association comes after the film recently won the Best Documentary prizes from the Vancouver Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review, as well as the award for Outstanding Achievement in Graphic Design or Animation from the Cinema Eye Honors.

The doc picked up two prizes at Dutch festival IDFA in November, and was earlier this week named as one of the five Oscar nominees for Best Documentary Feature.
