NYFCC’s lead acting awards went to Robert Redford for “All is Lost” and Cate Blanchett for “Blue Jasmine,” while Jared Leto nabbed the supporting actor title for “Dallas Buyers Club.”

“12 Years a Slave,” the title that dominated the Gotham Awards nominations but walked away with no trophies from Monday night’s ceremony, scored the NYFCC laurel for director Steve McQueen. “Fruitvale Station,” which picked up two prizes at the Gotham Awards, rode the momentum to win best first film, while “Blue is the Warmest Color” scored foreign film, “The Wind Rises” took the animated trophy and “Stories We Tell” won for documentary.
