    The National Society of Film Critics will be voting for their annual awards this Saturday 7 January. I often find this group the most interesting of all the critics awards, as they are the least afraid of going their own way from the general awards season narrative, like when they picked Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language for Best Picture (a film I still haven’t seen as I refuse to watch it in any format other than its intended 3D). Last year, however, they opted for the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner Spotlight.

    Let’s have a stab at predicting their winners for 2016. Bear in mind their membership overlap with the New York Film Critics Circle, as well as their voting system in which only those in attendance are allowed to vote after the first stage of voting for each category. They announce 2nd and 3rd place holders in all categories.

    My predictions:
    Best Film: Toni Erdmann
    Best Director: Maren Ade – Toni Erdmann
    Best Actor: Casey Affleck – Manchester by the Sea
    Best Actress: Isabelle Huppert – Elle/Things to Come
    Best Supporting Actor: Issey Ogata – Silence
    Best Supporting Actress: Michelle Williams – Manchester by the Sea
    Best Screenplay: Manchester by the Sea
    Best Cinematography: Moonlight
    Best Non-Fiction Film: O.J.: Made in America
    Best Foreign Language Film: Toni Erdmann (if it doesn’t win Best Film; if a foreign film wins the top award then this category is defunct)

    I expect both Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller from Toni Erdmann to be in runner-up positions for lead acting awards, along with Adam Driver for Paterson perhaps. My Issey Ogata prediction is a risky one but one that I hope will pay off; he did come in 2nd with the Los Angeles critics. Talking of which, I expect their Supporting Actress winner Lily Gladstone to figure in here as well, possibly a runner-up or maybe even another win. Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea and perhaps La La Land are naturally competitive for Best Film and Best Director, as they are everywhere else. I also wouldn’t be shocked if O.J. placed as a runner-up in the Best Film category, despite being a documentary.

    I wonder if they’ll try to go with something like O.J. Made in America to be cute.

    I wish these give Paterson some praise, not just runner-up places.

    I often find that they’re the most pretentious group.

    Film: Moonlight (RU: Toni Erdmann)
    Director: Jenkins, Moonlight (RU: Chazelle, La La Land)
    Actor: Adam Driver, Paterson (RU: Affleck, Manchester By the Sea)
    Actress: Isabelle Huppert, Elle and Things to Come (RU: Hüller, Toni Erdmann)
    Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali, Moonlight (RU: Issey Ogata, Silence)
    Supporting Actress: Lily Gladstone, Certain Women (Michelle Williams, Manchester By the Sea)
    Screenplay: Manchester By the Sea (RU: Paterson)
    Foreign Language Film: Toni Erdmann (RU: Elle)
    Cinematography: Moonlight (RU: Silence)

    The only morality in a cruel world is chance.

    I’d rather them being pretentious than predicting Oscars like everyone does these days.

    I suspect Huppert indeed gets the nod but this would be a prime, final opportunity to recognize Rebecca Hall and turn her into an 11-o’-clock-hour dark horse.
