Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Name ‘Spotlight’ Best Film of 2015

Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Name 'Spotlight' Best Film of 2015

Though major cities like New York, L.A., Boston, and Chicago have critics circles that receive the lion’s share of media attention, there are plenty of other critics associations that vote this time of year. Case in point: The Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association voted yesterday in their 22nd annual critics poll. They named Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight” as the best film of 2015, but the big winner was Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s film “The Revenant” which raked in four wins for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, and Best Score. Other interesting things to note include Rooney Mara winning in the Supporting Actress category despite clearly being the lead in “Carol,” and Sean Baker’s “Tangerine” winning the Russell Smith Award for “best low-budget or cutting-edge independent film.”
