The Artist, Meryl and Brad top the NY Film Critics Awards!

It’s been almost 30 years since Meryl Streep won an Oscar (for Sophie’s Choice), but she may finally get the golden guy again this year. She just grabbed her first big award of the season for her performance in The Iron Lady from the New York Film Critics Circle, the first of the critics group to announce their winners for this year. I think it’s a great sign for the long-overdue and always worthy (hello, she should’ve won for Doubt and Julie & Julia) Streep. Also winning big were The Artist which took Picture and Director and Brad Pitt who won Best Actor for his work in Moneyball and The Tree of Life. For more on the winners, head to the NYFCC site here and check out all the winners below.
