Critics Awards 2016: It’s a Tight Battle Between ‘Moonlight’ and ‘La La Land’

In pre-holiday voting, “Moonlight” has the edge in wins; Casey Affleck, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali dominate in acting categories

“Moonlight” and “La La Land” are fighting it out to be the choice of film critics groups around the country, with Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age drama holding a narrow edge over Damien Chazelle’s musical in the first batch of critics awards.

With more than 20 regional and national critics’ organizations announcing their picks for the top films of 2016, “Moonlight” has been named the year’s best by 13 different groups, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Alliance of Women Film Journalists. “La La Land” has topped nine lists, including the New York Film Critics Circle.

Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea” has been named the year’s best picture in two critics awards, and so has David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water.”

In best-director races, “Moonlight” director Jenkins has an edge over “La La Land’s” Chazelle, 10 wins to nine; in two critics awards contests, they tied.

Casey Affleck is the runaway critics’ choice for the year’s best actor for his performance in “Manchester by the Sea,” which has won 22 awards to three for Denzel Washington (“Fences”) and two for Adam Driver (“Paterson”). Mahershala Ali is almost as dominant in the supporting-actor category, with 19 wins and two ties.

In the female acting categories, Viola Davis (“Fences”) has almost three times as many wins as her closest rival, Michelle Williams (“Manchester by the Sea”), 15 to 6, while the lead-actress category is a tight race between Isabelle Huppert for “Elle” (and sometimes “Things to Come” as well) and Natalie Portman for “Jackie”; Huppert has won nine times, Portman seven. Ruth Negga has three times for “Loving,” as has Emma Stone for “La La Land.”

“The Handmaiden” is the clear choice for the year’s best foreign-language film, while the animated-feature category is neck-and-neck between Disney’s “Zootopia” and Laika’s “Kubo and the Two Strings.” “O.J.: Made in America” has the edge in the documentary category, with nine wins to six for “13th,” five for “Cameraperson” and four for “I Am Not Your Negro.”
