Adam Sandler'Uncut Gems' film premiere Arrivals 57th New York Film Festival USA- 03 Oct 2019

(Yes, that Adam Sandler.) The unheralded picture won't even hit US screens until December 13, but critics have had near-unanimous praise for its direction, Robert Altman-esque approach to dialogue, and yes, Sandler's performance.

A year ago the title of best film by critics was awarded the Green book, which subsequently received the Oscar.

The lead acting prizes were handed to Adam Sandler for indie thriller Uncut Gems and Renee Zellweger for musical biopic Judy. Adam Sandler won the best actor award for his performance in Uncut Gems, while Renée Zellweger won the best actress award for his performance in Judy.

Steven Zaillian also picked up the prize for best adapted screenplay for the film. The National Review of the Board (NRB) in the USA named The Irishman the best film of the year.

Precipice Booth (Brad Pitt) is a cool client in Quentin Tarantino's "Quite a long time ago in Hollywood".

Other enormous winners of the NBR incorporate Kathy Bates as best supporting on-screen character in Clint Eastwood's "Richard Jewell", and Brad Pitt as best supporting entertainer for "Once upon a time". Both movies are widely expected to eventually reap numerous nominations at the Oscars, with either potentially landing Netflix its first best-picture win.
