The Atlanta Film Critic Circle Awards

December 13, 2018

The Atlanta Film Critics Circle has chosen 2018 winners

The AFCC has awarded its honors to the top films and stars of the year. The highest award for the number one film was given to The Favourite, a period piece from Yorgos Lanthimos which opens in Atlanta this Friday.  The Favourite also brings us best lead actress (Colivia Colman), best ensemble cast, best supporting actress (Emma Stone), and best screenplay. The Favourite is defined by incredible performances and a powerful rendering of the viciousness behind class divisions,” said AFCC co-founder Felicia Feaster.  “Though set in the 18th century, there is clear resonance for our current age and the often brutal circumstances for women who are powerless and lack social standing in Lanthimos’ trenchant rendering of gender divisions and power,” said Feaster. 


In second place comes the remake of A Star Is Born, the hit from Bradley Cooper starring himself and Lady Gaga. The film brought home individual awards such as best supporting actor (Sam Elliott), and the special award of best breakthrough performance for Lady Gaga and best first film to Bradley Cooper.


The full list has a myriad of genres and film headquarters, representing a variety of film favorites. 

“Our list includes period dramas, inventive horror, commentary on religion, race relations and the environment, minimalist art-house fare, stark social media observations, sci-fi fantasy and a fresh take on the traditional Hollywood epic,” says AFCC co-founder Michael Clark. “It covers the gamut and I’m very pleased with the members’ collective enthusiasm.”


The AFCC consists of 27 Atlanta film critics with the goal of promoting Atlanta film, art, and culture.
