No Country For Old Men Tops New York Film Critics Circle Vote
New Coen Brothers movie NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN has dominated yet another influential end of year (07) critics' poll - it has been voted Best Picture by the New York Film Critics Circle. Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen also won the Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay honours for the crime drama, which is based on a novel by Cormac MCCarthy. Daniel-Day Lewis was named Best Actor for his role in There Will Be Blood, and the Best Actress prize went to Julie Christie for her performance in Away From Her. No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood are emerging as the front-runners to take top honours at the 2008 Academy Awards - both pictures lead various U.S. critics' polls, which are regarded as solid indicators of Oscar glory.
