The New York Film Critics Circle has unveiled its annual awards, honouring the late Chadwick Boseman with the Best Supporting Actor award for his performance in the Spike Lee-directed “Da 5 Bloods”.
Also honoured was Boseman’s co-star in that film, Delroy Lindo, who won the Best Actor award.
The year’s top award, Best Film, went to “First Cow” which follows a cook and a Chinese immigrant who join a group of Oregon trappers in the early 19th century, with this unlikely duo creating a successful business that relies on a wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow.
