La La Land maintained its domination of the Best Picture category for this awards term by winning the top prize at the 82nd New York Film Critics Circle Award on this Tuesday night. Damien Chazelle directs the movie, and it is a real musical love story of an enthusiastic actress. And a jazz composer set in Los Angeles is regarded an Oscar front-runner in this year. Casey Affleck selected up as Best Actor for his portrayal of a man who becomes the involuntary guardian of his teenage nephew after his brother dies, in the film “Manchester by the Sea”.

“Well, I have been singled out by this organisation before in a less favourable way, but you made to take your lumps, you know if you are going to enjoy the sugar. So it’s good to be in this room and to know that at least a majority of them apprehended the job I did in this movie, if not all of them,” Affleck said. Isabelle Huppert, the French actress, was acknowledged as Best Actress in for her work in the drama films “Elle” and Things to come”.
Isabelle Huppert Declared as Best Actress
“I seem like I have twins, it’s fabulous, it’s great, and I think both films speak in a very realistic way about a woman’s condition in a very contemporaneous way”. Best Helping Actress went to Michelle Williams for her roles in “Manchester by the Sea” and “Certain Women”. “Moonlight”, which supports a young black man rising in a tough Miami neighbourhood, pick up many trophies. Mahershala Ali snagged Best Helping Actor for his depiction of a crack merchant, while Barry Jenkins was named Best Director and James Laxton Top Cinematographer.
