Carol"Carol" was the big winner at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, winning Best Film, Best Director for Todd Haynes, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography. This gives the lesbian drama another boost in the Oscar race, after netting a leading six Independent Spirit Award nominations last week. "Carol" star Cate Blanchett lost out, however, in the Best Actress category to Saoirse Ronan for "Brooklyn."

Michael Keaton took home the trophy for Best Actor for his role in "Spotlight," while Kristen Stewart revved up her awards buzz by winning Best Supporting Actress for "Clouds of Sils Maria."

The NYFCC awards are a good indicator of the movies and performances likely to get nominated for an Oscar. Last year, they named "Boyhood" as Best Film, and honored eventual Oscar winners J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette.
