Toronto Critics Go South To THE FLORIDA PROJECT For Best Film (AWARDS 2017)


The critics awards keep rolling in, and now Canada’s premiere group adds its list.

The Toronto Film Critics Association showed a lot of love for indie efforts, with The Florida Project, Lady Bird, and Get Out each garnering two awards.

The big winner was The Florida Project, which was named the year’s Best Picture. Willem Dafoe also continued his march to a Supporting Actor Oscar.

Likewise, Laurie Metcalf remains the strong odds-on Academy favorite for Best Supporting Actress. She wins yet again for her turn in Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig‘s semi-autobiographical Coming Of Age charmer. Gerwig took Best Director honors.

Jordan Peele also snagged two prizes, Screenplay and Best First Feature, for Get Out.

Daniel Day-Lewis was named Best Actor for his lead turn in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Phantom Thread, which he has announced will be his last screen role, and Frances McDormand was recognized as Best Actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
