New York Film Critics Awards: Winners List (Updating Live)

New York Film Critics Awards: Winners List (Updating Live)


The New York Film Critics Circle, the first major critics group to kick off Oscar season by selecting the best films and performances from 2023, is announcing its winners.

Celebrating its 89th year, the East Coast org comprises more than 50 journalists from publications such as Variety.

NYFCC’s winner for best film has typically had a strong correlation with the Academy Awards’ best picture prize. Since the expansion to nominees in 2009, only “Carol” (2015) and “First Cow” (2020) have missed out on a best picture nom. The latter was the first film in the organization’s long history to fail to garner a single Oscar nom. Since 1935, NYFCC and the Academy have matched 43% of the time.

Three of the four NYFCC acting winners of last year went on to be nominated at the Oscars: Colin Farrell (“The Banshees of Inisherin”), Cate Blanchett (“Tár”) and eventual supporting actor winner Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”). Only Keke Palmer’s surprise supporting actress win missed out on Academy attention.
