NYFCC Winners and Critics Choice Predictions

BEST PICTURE: Lady Bird
BEST DIRECTOR: Sean Baker, The Florida Project
BEST ACTOR: Timothée Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name
BEST ACTRESS: Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Tiffany Haddish, Girls Trip

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: Coco
BEST FOREIGN FILM: BPM (Beats Per Minute)
BEST NONFICTION FILM: Faces Places
BEST FIRST FILM: Get Out

So, this is an interesting set of winners. Lady Bird continues its dominance, but it’s too early to tell if the film will be a legitimate contender to win Best Picture. Tiffany Haddish is the most unusual winner, but I don’t think she will repeat at the Oscars. All the other winners are at least in the conversation.

So, tomorrow is the Critics Choice nominations. Once they are announced, awards season officially kicks off. So, I decided to throw together some predictions. They were a little tricky to put together, mainly because it’s hard to know what films will qualify.
