Kansas City Critics Picks Include a Tie Between ‘Nomadland’ and ‘Promising Young Woman’

Focus Features

The Kansas City Film Critics Circle have revealed their winners for this year’s awards, and it comes with the rare tied winner in the Best Picture category. The KCFCC didn’t choose a side between two of the most dominant critics’ favorites we’ve seen on the circuit so far, giving their win to both Nomadland and Promising Young Woman

The two went to bat with one another all over the KCFCC’s selections, with Promising Young Woman winning Best Original Screenplay, while Nomadland won Best Adapted Screenplay. Carey Mulligan got the edge on Frances McDormand, with the former winning the Best Actress category while McDormand pulled up behind her as the runner-up. However, Chloé Zhao took home another Best Director prize for her Nomadland efforts, while the runner-up there was (perhaps surprisingly) Aaron Sorkin for The Trial of the Chicago 7
