It looks like it’s going to be another big year for director David O. Russell (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook), whose American Hustle garnered three awards from the New York Film Critics Circle today including Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence).
Steve McQueen was named “Best Director” for 12 Years a Slave, while Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) and Robert Redford (All is Lost) were awarded with “Best Actress” and “Best Actor.” Most notably, actor/musician/writer Jared Leto received the award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his return to the big screen in Dallas Buyers Club.
Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is one of the oldest in the country and is made up of a number of writers and critics from national newspapers, magazines and online publications.
