As we near the coveted Golden Globe nominations on Monday morning, the New York Film Critics Circle Awards are being doled out this afternoon, and the results don’t seem to give one film a clear advantage in the coming horse races. Laura Dern was honored as Best Supporting Actress for her work in both Little Women and Marriage Story — as a Vulture Master of Culture absolutely should be — and Lupita Nyong’o in Us advanced her case for a Best Lead Actress Oscar nomination with a win in the category from the NYFCC. Marriage Story, which also had a strong showing at the Gotham Awards, was only recognized for Dern’s work this time around, and Bong Joon Ho’s heralded Parasite secured its place here as Best Foreign Language Film. The top three awards, however — for Picture, Director, and Screenplay — all went to different films. Read below for the full list of winners as awards season continues to confuse.
