Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story leads all films in the Vancouver Film Critics Circle’s international section with five nominations.
Noah Baumbach’s divorce drama shares the Best Picture category with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite; Scorsese and Bong also join Sam Mendes (for 1917) in the Best Director category.
Three of Marriage Story’s performers picked up nominations. While Adam Driver is nominated for Best Actor alongside Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory and Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, Scarlett Johansson is up against Lupita Nyong’o for Us and Saoirse Ronan for Little Women in the Best Actress category. Meanwhile, Laura Dern received a nod for Best Supporting Actress, where she will contend with Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers and Florence Pugh for Little Women.
The Best Supporting Actor category consists of Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Joe Pesci for The Irishman, and Brad Pitt for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. Quentin Tarantino’s film is also nominated for Best Screenplay where its writer-director will compete with Noah Baumbach for Marriage Story and Bong Joon-ho and Han Jin-won for Parasite.
The Farewell, Pain and Glory and Parasite are up for Best Foreign Language Film, while Apollo 11, For Sama, and Honeyland are nominated for Best Documentary.
