Awards Watch: NYFCC Announces The Winners for 2013

American Hustle won big today with the New York Film Critic’s Circle. It scored big wins for Best Film, Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence, and Best Screenplay. American Hustle had stayed relatively under the radar early in the awards season, as it was one of the last films to screen for critics. It has since been rocketing up the prediction charts, with Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence both mixing up their races. Lawrence is now an early front-runner, and after winning the Best Actress award last year, it would be quite an ordeal if she were to win again this year.

Robert Redford also added a notch to his belt in the tight Best Actor race. The category has been a deadlock between five actors, with another set of five actors ready to shake up the race. Cate Blanchett beat out rival Sandra Bullock, as well as several other contenders. And Jared Leto edged out presumed frontrunner Michael Fassbender.

Even though it won Best Film, American Hustle’s director, David O’Russell lost the directing nod to Steve McQueen, who won for directing 12 Years A Slave. Will the same thing happen at the Oscars?
