New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird takes Best Picture and Best Actress awards.

Lady Bird wins Best Picture and Best Actress at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards

The New York Film Critics Circle Awards were announced on November 29, and once again, Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, and The Florida Project rose to the top. In a year of incredibly strong and unique voices, the path to the Oscars® is starting to be more certain for these four titles.

Robin Campillo's BPM (Beats Per Minute) emerges onto the Foreign Language title awards scene, and Agnes Varda's likely last film Faces, Places took the Best Documentary award. Rachel Morrison winning Best Cinematography for Mudbound hopefully presages the Oscars® , where she would make history as the first female cinematographer ever nominated.

The awards season is fully underway now!
