As the Oscar season gears up, the NYFCC announced the winners of their annual awards
It’s officially awards season!
The New York Film Critics Circle announced the winners of their annual awards on Thursday, with Netflix’s Roma taking home three of the day’s biggest prizes.
Roma, a black and white Spanish-language film set in 1970s Mexico City, was named Best Picture at the annual awards, while the film’s director, Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuarón, also won the directing and cinematography prizes.
The NYFCC names winners in several traditional awards categories every year, like best actor/actress and best director, and is part of the annual run-up to Oscars season. The awards will be handed out at a ceremony in New York in January.
Regina King and Richard E. Grant won the Supporting Actress and Actor categories, the former for If Beale Street Could Talk and Grant for Can You Ever Forgive Me?.
