New York Film Critics Circle Names Roma Best Picture of 2018


The New York Film Critics Circle has just finished announcing their awards for 2018, naming Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" the best film of the year. The film also won Best Director (Cuaron) and Best Cinematography (Cuaron). With the film's immense popularity, this is sure to be merely the first of several major wins to come.

The only other film to take more than one award was Paul Schrader's "First Reformed," which took Best Actor for Ethan Hawke's outstanding performance and Best Screenplay for Schrader. The only major surprise here was seeing Regina Hall win Best Actress for "Support the Girls" over frontrunners like Glenn Close for "The Wife" and Olivia Colman for "The Favourite."

However, the season has just started, meaning there's still plenty of time for other nominees to rack up wins. Next up sees the DC critics announcing their winners, so be sure to check back to see who gets honored as we continue to dive into awards season.
