New York Film Critics Circle Awards announces winners for 2015

The New York Film Critics Circle held its voting for their NYFCC Awards this morning and have announced its award winners for the year 2015. The big winner was the Todd Haynes lesbian-themed drama Carol. It won for Best Picture, Best Director (Haynes), Best Screenplay (Phyllis Nagy), and Best Cinematographer (Edward Lachman).

While Spotlight was the top prizewinner at this weekend's Gotham Independent Film Awards, its only win from the NYFCC was Best Actor for Michael Keaton. Neither film featured prominently in yesterday's awards selection by the National Board of Review. Spotlight received a mention as one of the top ten films of the year, while Carol was omitted entirely.

The Best Actress prize went to Saoirse Ronan for her role as an Irish immigrant in Brooklyn. The supporting acting awards went to Kristen Stewart (Clouds Of Sils Maria) and Mark Rylance (Bridge Of Spies).

The awards will be presented at the NYFCC’s annual dinner on January 4, 2016.
