BAFTA Watch - National Society Of Film Critics Choose A Definitive Winner

The National Society of Film Critics actually have a clear winner in this most uncertain of seasons – and it’s Lady Bird. Greta Gerwig’s brilliant coming of age comedy-drama won best Film, Best Supporting for Laurie Metcalfe as well as Director and Screenplay for Gerwig herself. Sadly missing out, but landing as runner up (NSFC list their runner ups), was Saoirse Ronan who saw the Best Actress gong go to Sally Hawkins, for both Shape Of Water and the much under valued Maudie.
