This past Tuesday night, the 85th Annual New York Film Critics Circle Awards were held at Tao Downtown. As always, it was the highlight of the awards ceremonies leading up to the Oscars.
Among the winners who were present were Antonio Banderas, Laura Dern, Lupita Nyong’o, Joe Pesci, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and Bong Joon Ho.
The Presenters gushing over the awardees included Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Bee, Adam Sandler, Alec Baldwin, Spike Lee, and Steve Buscemi.
Best of all were the intelligent film critics who saw the movies and collectively acknowledged the talent both in front of the lens and behind it.
