October 23 ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012) Directed by Kathryn Bigelow
Gripping, suspenseful, and brilliantly crafted, Zero Dark Thirty dramatizes the hunt for Osama bin Laden with intelligence and an eye for detail. Through the eyes of Maya, a young U.S. Central Intelligence Agency officer, who has spent her entire career since graduating from high school focused solely on gathering intelligence related to the al-Qaeda terrorist leader, the film is a chronicle of the decade-long manhunt after the September 2001 attacks.

The film won one, for Best Sound Editing. Zero Dark Thirty earned four Golden Globe Award nominations, including Best Picture Drama, Best Director, and won one Best Actress Drama for Chastain.
