Carol Dominates The NYFCC Awards

“Carol” cleaned up at this year’s New York Film Critics Circle awards, the sumptuous 1950s lesbian romance drama nabbing four top honors including Best Picture, Best Director (Todd Haynes), Best Cinematographer (Edward Lachman) and Best Screenplay (Phyllis Nagy).

No other film won more than one award each. Acting honors went to Michael Keaton (“Spotlight”) and Saoirse Ronan (“Brooklyn”) for the leading roles, while Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”) and Kristen Stewart (“Cloulds of Sils Maria”) took supporting nods.

Also winning were “Inside Out” for best animated film, “In Jackson Heights” for best documentary, “Timbuktu” for best foreign language film and “Son of Saul” for best first feature.
