NY Film Critics Online Awards 2020 Winners

On January 26, 2021 the New York Film Critics Online (NYFCO) voted virtually for the first time in the group’s 21-year history.  Lee Isaac Chung’s Minari won the group’s Best Picture prize, making this the third consecutive year that a foreign language film won the group’s top honor.

Nomadland’s director Chloé Zhao won Best Director for her drama, while Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman took honors for Screenplay, Debut Director, and for its star, Carey Mulligan.  Sound of Metal star Riz Ahmed received the honor for Best Actor, while Leslie Odom, Jr. earned Supporting Actor honors for One Night in Miami.

The Supporting Actress category featured a tie between Ellen Burstyn for Pieces of a Woman and Youn Yuh-jung for Minari, and Breakthrough Performer tied Maria Bakalova of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm with Kingsley Ben-Adir of One Night in Miami.

The Ensemble Cast award went to Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7.
