“12 Years a Slave,” a drama that captures the brutality of slavery in the pre-Civil War South, made nearly a clean sweep of the Iowa Film Critics Association’s annual awards, including best picture.

Honors also went to Steve McQueen as best director, Chiwetel Ejiofor as best actor, Michael Fassbender as supporting actor and Lupita Nyong’o as supporting actress. Ejiofor and Nyong’o played slaves, while Fassbender was a sadistic plantation owner.
