Chicago crix love ‘L.A.’

Pic sweeps top artistic awards at Windy City kudos

Warner Bros./New Regency’s “L.A. Confidential” swept the top artistic awards — including best picture — at the Chicago Film Critics Awards Sunday night.

The event attracted most of this year’s winners, including best actor Robert Duvall for “The Apostle,” supporting actress Debbi Morgan from “Eve’s Bayou” and most promising performer Joey Lauren Adams of “Chasing Amy.”

Unlike other critics’ organizations, the awards are not pre-announced. However, winners are informed in advance and their presence has been a tipoff for those present of the evening’s outcome.

“Titanic” was honored in two tech categories, while John Mahoney, who received initial acclaim as part of the city’s theatrical troupe Steppenwolf, won the special Commitment to Chicago award.

And flying in from Tokyo, filmmaker Masayuki Suo two-stepped to the stage for his foreign-language honor for “Shall We Dance?”
