Vancouver Film Critics Circle Winners – ‘Roma’ and “First Reformed’ Win Big

The Vancouver Film Critics Circle just announced their set of winners including “Roma” for Best Picture. But while “Roma” took home the top prize and also Foreign Language Film, it was “First Reformed” that emerged the big winner. The faith-based drama took home three awards including Best Director and Best Screenplay for Paul Schrader and Best Actor for Ethan Hawke.

Also, there is more proof of how crazy the Best Actress race is. All three nominees in that category: Olivia Colman, Regina Hall, and Melissa McCarthy, managed to achieve a three-way tie.  Meanwhile, Richard E. Grant continues his critical dominance as he picked up another Supporting Actor prize.
