‘Drive My Car’ and Lady Gaga Among Surprise Winners at New York Film Critics Circle (Full List)

‘Drive My Car’ and Lady Gaga Among Surprise Winners at New York Film Critics Circle (Full List)
The New York Film Critics Circle announced its winners on Friday morning — and they were enamored by Japanese cinema, Italian accents and a Western.

One of the first critics’ groups to weigh in on awards season, the East Coast org that’s comprised of more than 50 journalists from publications such as Time, Vanity Fair and Variety, named Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s “Drive My Car” the best film of 2021. The Sideshow and Janus Films-distributed pic, which is representing Japan for the international feature category at the Oscars was quite the shocker, given the voting body was clearly enamored by Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog,” which nabbed three major prizes — the most of any film.

NYFCC’s winner for best film has typically had a strong correlation with the Academy Awards’ best picture category. Since the expansion to nominees in 2009, only “Carol” (2015) and last year’s “First Cow” (2020) have missed recognition.
