New York Film Critics Circle Awards

While Roma won big with the New York Film Critics Circle awards, the wins keep coming for Ethan Hawke and First Reformed, winning Best Actor and Best Screenplay, while Richard E. Grant picks up the Best Supoorting Actor award for Can You Ever Forgive Me?. Eighth Grade hits for Best First Feature, showing that SIFF audiences know talent when we see it!

Upcoming SIFF Cinema films fared well, with Regina King winning Best Supoorting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk and Pawel Pawlikowski's Cold War continuing its march towards the Best Foreign Language Oscar. The NYFCC is made up of critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, and online publications, and has a strong history of lauding upcoming Oscar nominees, though not always the eventual winners.
