Much like 2013-era Miley Cyrus, the awards-season race can’t stop! After the Gothams and the NBRs, next up is the New York Film Critics Circle. Roma took home the two biggest prizes, winning Best Film, and Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. In the acting categories, the Reginas prospered! Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk, and Regina Hall won Best Actress for Support the Girls. (Hall is the first black woman to ever win the NYFCC’s Best Actress award.) Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade won Best First Film.

At last year’s awards, Lady Bird won Best Film, with Tiffany Haddish, Timothée Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, and Willem Dafoe taking home the acting awards. See this year’s winners below:
