Exciting news! Timothée will receive the Best Actor (Call Me by Your Name) award from the New York Film Critics Circle. Lady Bird has been named the Best Picture. Tim has been very busy this year, I apologize for the lack of news around here! We’ll be back on track soon.
VARIETY – With its annual cinema superlatives vote Thursday morning, the New York Film Critics Circle made a handful of historical choices. “Call Me by Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet became the youngest winner of the group’s best actor prize, while “Mudbound” DP Rachel Morrison became the first woman to win the cinematography award (perhaps on her way to making further history as the first-ever female Oscar nominee in the category).
See the full list of winners below along with ongoing commentary from the morning.
This year’s NYFCC ceremony, taking place on Jan. 3, will be dedicated to the memory of film critic Richard Schickel, who passed away in February.
Best Actor: Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”)
A breakthrough staple so far this season, Chalamet has caught fire as a bona fide lead actor contender in this year’s race. He’s also had a busy year, appearing in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” as well. He is the youngest best actor winner in NYFCC history.
Best Film: “Lady Bird” (Gerwig)
And now “Lady Bird” becomes the second!
Exciting news! Timothée will be honored at the 21st Annual Hollywood Film Awards. He will receive the “Hollywood Breakout Performance Actor Award” for his performance in Call Me by Your Name. The award ceremony will take place on November 5th.
