New Yorks Plumps For Lady Bird

The Ney York Film Critic’s Circle have announced their winners for 2017, with Greta Gerwig’s wonderful Lady Bird becoming a clear East Coast favourite, (despite its West Coast setting), taking Best Picture and Best Actress for the brilliant Saoirse Ronan. Sean Baker was named Best Director for The Florida Project, with Willem Dafoe putting her hat squarely in the ring by landing Best Supporting Actor for same.

Elsewhere, Coco is looking like the clear field leader for animated movie, with Call Me By Your Name and Phantom Thread also getting a look in. Curiously missing from the conversation at this point is Nolan’s Dunkirk.
