Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) has taken the 2016 award for best actor from the New York Film Critics Circle, with Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight”) claiming best supporting actor. “O.J.: Made in America” scored for documentary, and “Zootopia” took animated film.
The Nyfcc also announced special honors for Thelma Schoonmaker, the editor who’s worked with Martin Scorsese on a string of movies from “Raging Bull” to “Silence,” and for the 25th anniversary restoration of Julie Dash’s “Daughters of the Dust.”
As it has in recent years, the Nyfcc is announcing the winners on Twitter as they are decided during a meeting of the group. Membership is comprised of critics who review film for New York-based outlets including New York Magazine, the New Yorker, the Village Voice, Indiewire and Variety.
Stay tuned for updates as results come in.

In perhaps the most famous moment of the crackling classic Sweet Smell of Success, famous newspaper columnist J.J. Hunsecker (Burt Lancaster) briefly sees through press agent Sidney Falco's (Tony Curtis) fast-talking exterior and pauses. "I'd hate to take a bite out of you," reflects Hunsecker. "You're a cookie full of arsenic." Returning for its second season on Monday, June 6, Lifetime's UnREAL is an updated version of that idiom, a colorful macaron full of strychnine, perhaps? UnREAL launched last summer and was reductively described as a satirical look behind the scenes of a Bachelor-style TV dating show.
