National Society of Film Critics Awards: ‘TÁR’ and Cate Blanchett complete sweep

“TÁR” was named Best Picture, its titular lead Cate Blanchett was honored as Best Actress and Colin Farrell was voted Best Actor this weekend by the National Society of Film Critics at its 57th annual awards. The wins for “TÁR” and Blanchett gave the film and its star a rare trifecta as both earned wins late last year from the New York Film Critics Circle and Los Angeles Film Critics Association in addition to the NSFC. Also earning a clean sweep of the three prestigious critics honors was Ke Huy Kwan, who pulled off the hat trick as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Farrell, meanwhile, won Best Actor for his star turns in both “The Banshees of Inisherin” and “After Yang.” Farrell’s “Banshees” co-star Kerry Condon took home the prize for Best Supporting Actress.

Also winning for “TÁR” was Todd Field, who notched a victory for Best Screenplay. With regard to Field’s film, the last movies to win NSFC, NYFCC and LAFCA were “Drive My Car” (2021), “The Social Network” (2010) and “The Hurt Locker” (2009), all of which were nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. “Hurt Locker” wound up winning for Best Picture, while “Drive My Car” earned the Academy Award for International Feature Film. Charlotte Wells took the Best Director trophy for “Aftersun.” The moving Polish donkey story “EO” also won two statues: for Best Film Not in the English Language and Best Cinematography for Michał Dymek.
