The New York Film Critics Circle is voting right now. Will the Circle be unbroken? So far their choices are pretty mainstream, up the middle.
NYFCC’s picks are LaLaLand best picture, Isabelle Huppert best actress, Michelle Williams best supporting actress, Casey Affleck, best actor for Manchester, Mahershala Ali for Moonlight best supporting actor, Zootopia for Best Animated Film, and the OJ: Made in America for best Documentary.
All those choices are fine and right on the nose. But the OJ doc is really for TV. There were so many good docs made as films, it’s too bad the NY critics didn’t choose one of those.
Best Screenplay– Manchester– Kenneth Lonergan
Best Cinematography– Moonlight
Foreign Language Film– Toni Erdmann
