Music City Critics winners: ‘Promising Young Woman’ is Best Picture
Focus Features’ Promising Young Woman may have only had four nominations from the Music City Film Critics Association but it still pulled off a surprise Best Picture win with the group, who announced their winners on Monday. Carey Mulligan was also named Best Actress.
Netflix’s Mank came in with a field best nine nominations but managed just a single win, in Production Design. The Trial of the Chicago 7 (also from Netflix) turned seven nominations into two wins: Supporting Actor for Sacha Baron Cohen and Best Editing for Alan Baumgarten, in a tie with The Invisible Man‘s Andy Canny.
Nomadland was also a double winner, taking home Best Director for Chloé Zhao and Best Cinematography for Joshua James Richards. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom earned a Best Actor win for Chadwick Boseman and tied in Best Ensemble with One Night in Miami, the latter of which also won for Best Song.
