‘Call Me By Your Name,’ ‘Phantom Thread’ Top 15th International Cinephile Society (ICS) Winners

After a record-setting 11 nominations, Call Me By Your Name has won the International Cinephile Society’s Best Picture of 2017. The film also took top honors for Best Actor (Timothée Chalamet), Best Supporting Actor (Michael Stuhlbarg) and Best Adapted Screenplay (James Ivory).

Giving tremendous chase though was Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread. In fact, the two films completely dominated the top eight categories. Phantom Thread won Director, Actress (Vicky Krieps), Supporting Actress (Lesley Manville) and Original Screenplay (Paul Thomas Anderson) and was the group’s top winner with five awards.

Other multiple winners included the 90s-era French AIDS drama BPM (Foreign Film, Ensemble) and Blade Runner 2049 (Cinematography and Production Design). Good Time found itself with the Film Editing win and a pair of runners-ups and The Lost City of Z was also a double-bridesmaid.

This year, the International Cinephile Society (of which I am a voting member) created a special 15th Anniversary Award for their all-time favorite best picture. All 14 prior winners competed in final-round voting, where Leos Carax’s Holy Motors came out victorious.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
