The 13th Annual International Cinephile Society Awards went down a historic path this past Sunday night, bestowing “Carol” with five awards, the highest the ICS has ever presented to a film. “Carol” nabbed not only the Best Picture award, but also honors for Best Director for Todd Haynes and Best Actress for Rooney Mara.

The online group is comprised of journalists, film academics and critics, as well as other industry professionals, who honor a wide range of films, many of which are international. “Carol” beat out 10 other films to pick up the Best Picture award, pushing out heavy Oscar contender “Mad Max: Fury Road,” as well as “The Assassin,” “Clouds of Sils Maria,” “45 Years,” “L’il Quinquin,” “Inside Out,” “The Duke of Burgundy,” “A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence,” “Arabian Nights” and “Tangerine.” Four of the ICS Best Picture nominees were predominantly spoken in a foreign language, signaling the ICS’ inclusive nature.

“The Assassin” walked away with high honors as well, winning Best Film Not in the English Language, Best Cinematography, and Best Production Design. Other movies that were honored during the awards ceremony were “Clouds of Sils Maria,” which was the only other film other than “Carol” and “Assassin” to pick up several awards (Kristen Stewart for Best Supporting Actress and Olivier Assayas for Best Original Screenplay). Oscar Isaac continued his recent string of critically acclaimed roles by nabbing the Best Supporting Actor award for his turn in “Ex Machina.” Gaspard Ulliel was honored with the Best Actor award for playing the eponymous “Saint Laurent.”
