Phoenix Critics Circle Announces Award Winners; ‘The Shape of Water’ and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Tie for Best Film

The Phoenix Critics Circle (PCC) gathered Saturday night to announce their picks for the best in film in 2017, and the results feature several ties. “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” tied for best film and best actress (Sally Hawkins and Frances Mcdormand), with “Three Billboards” picking up a five awards overall. Best screenplay was also too close to call, with Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards”) and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) all earning nods for writing. We’ll have to wait and see how these wins will shake up potential Oscar nominations in January.
