The New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review

And the 2005 film awards keep coming.

The New York Film Critics Circle has joined the Brokeback Mountain bandwagon. They gave it the prizes for best film, best director and best actor (Heath Ledger). Among their other picks - Reese Witherspoon as best actress for Walk the Line, Noah Baumbach won best screenplay for The Squid and the Whale, 2046 won best foreign film and best cinematography, and Howl's Moving Castle won best animated feature.

The National Board of Review though is a little different from these others. While still awarding Ang Lee the best director honor for Brokeback Mountain, they picked Good Night, and Good Luck as best film. Among the others they honored were Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) as best actor, Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) as best supporting actor, The Corpse Bride (for best animated feature), and Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) and Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) won the screenplay awards.
