Last year, the New York Film Critics Online followed in the path of the Gotham print scribes by naming “Boyhood” as the best film of the year. Likewise, they endorsed three of the four performances chosen by the New York Film Critics Circle, differing only on Best Actor. This year, they went their own way, choosing “Spotlight” as Best Picture while the NYFCC went with “Carol.” And they honored only one of the Circle’s acting choices: Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”).
