Lady Gaga was named Best Actress of 2021 by the New York Film Critics Circle for her performance in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci.
On Friday, the New York Film Critics Circle rattled the Oscar race by naming the finest movies and performers of the year.
Male And Female Winners
Lady Gaga took her first big step toward Oscar consideration when the NYFCC named her Best Actress of 2021 for her role in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci.
On the male side, Benedict Cumberbatch won his first major award of the year, Best Actor, for his portrayal in Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog.
Oscar-buzzed Supporting Actor nominee Kodi Smit-performance McPhee’s in Campion’s highly acclaimed Netflix drama also received NYFCC support, paving the way for what many observers believe will be a breakthrough year for the 25-year-old Australian talent.
Kathryn Hunter was also recognized as a supporting actor in Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth.
Drive My Car, a three-hour emotional epic directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi that earlier won Best Screenplay at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, was named Best Film.
Typically, the NYFCC shares several winners with the equivalent Oscars ceremony in a given year, including recent Academy Award winners like Supporting Actress victors Laura Dern and Regina King and last year’s history-making Best Director champion Chloé Zhao.
The New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Film winner has gone on to win or be considered for the Academy Award for Best Picture eight times in the last ten years.
