If your favorite season is awards season, then you’re officially in your element. Following the Gotham Awards, New York’s next awards show is keeping the hungry folks over at the Vulture Movie Fantasy League satiated. The New York Film Critics Circle Awards on December 2 helped set the tone for the award season. So, when NYFCC answers questions like “Is Marcel the Shell with Shoes On really an animated picture?” with a resounding “Yes, and it was the best animated picture of the year,” it matters. The awards can also spell success for indie and foreign contenders like Aftersun, starring Paul Mescal, which took home Best First Film, or the much-beloved RRR, which won Best Director. The film that really won critics over is biopic TÁR, which won both Best Film and Best Actress for Cate Blanchett’s portrayal of the very real conductor. Below, find all the wins from the 2022 NYFCC Awards.
