‘No Country’ tops with N.Y. critics

Day-Lewis, Christie win top acting prizes

“No Country for Old Men” was the big winner in Monday’s voting for the 73rd annual New York Film Critics Circle awards, drawing the picture nod and three other prizes.

The Cormac McCarthy adaptation, which has been riding a wave of critical buzz since its Cannes preem, captured screenplay and director honors for the Coen brothers. Javier Bardem took supporting actor for his turn as the film’s diabolically existential villain.

Daniel Day-Lewis drew the lead actor nod for “There Will Be Blood,” and Julie Christie won for “Away From Her.” Those two films repped the only other multiple winners, as Sarah Polley took first feature for “Away,” and Robert Elswit took the cinematography nod for “Blood.”

Amy Ryan drew supporting actress for playing the conflicted mother whose trouble drives the plot of “Gone Baby Gone.”

Release dates played a part in this year’s foreign-language winner. “The Lives of Others,” which already won 2006’s foreign-language Oscar, was never released last year in Gotham, so it was eligible for the group’s consideration.

A panel of 29 critics repping newspapers and magazines voted on the awards, to be doled out Jan. 6 at a banquet at plus-sized Times Square eatery Spotlight Live.
