MOONLIGHT WINS TOP PRIZE FROM NEW YORK FILM CRITICS ONLINE


It's a heavy day indeed for critics groups, with the New York Film Critics Online the first to declare in full its slate of 2016 award winners. Via the NYFCO's Twitter, SOS has gleaned information about runners-up alongside the films that beat them, which were pretty much just Moonlight, Moonlight and more Moonlight. Not at all bothered about that, given their New York counterparts' surprise choice of La La Land, which is almost entirely shut out here. Check it all out below!
