New York Film Critics Circle 2018 Winners Announced: Roma Named Best Film

Netflix's Roma Wins Big at New York Film Critics Circle Awards

by | November 29, 2018 | Comments

The NYFCC announced the winners of their 2018 Awards this morning on Twitter. Roma led all winnners with three; Best Film, Best Director, and Best Cinametography. Paul Schrader’s First Reformed followed with two wins for Best Screenplay and Best Actor. This sets up quite well for Curarón’s black and white semi-autobiographical story of his adolescence in 1970s Mexico, as told through the eyes of the woman who raised him. A strong showing with critics groups early will help propel some good will with Academy voters. This morning’s announcement also bodes well for Schrader, the writer of Taxi Driver & Raging Bull, to secure his ever-elusive first Oscar.

The NYFCC Awards are chosen by a group of critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers, magazines, and qualifying online general interest publications. Last year, Lady Bird won the award for Best Picture while The Florida Project won for Best Director (Sean Baker).
