Laurie Metcalf and Saoirse Ronan star as mom and daughter in a critically acclaimed comedy.
NEW YORK — For Team Lady Bird, a New York Film Critics Circle Awards was a family affair.
Greta Gerwig’s relatable coming-of-age comedy was a goddess of a round during a annual critics’ organisation dinner, that was hosted during a sweeping Tao Downtown grill Wednesday night.
Tokyo-style filet mignon and boiled rice lined a menu, as did movie-themed drinks such as a vodka-based “Lady Bird” — named for a film that NYFCC awarded best design and singer (Saoirse Ronan) — and sparkling “Chalamet Champagne,” a curtsy to Lady Bird co-star Timothée Chalamet, who picked adult best actor for his work in happy intrigue Call Me By Your Name.

The boozy eventuality was something of a homecoming for Ronan, 23, whom NYFCC named best singer only dual years ago for her heart-rending spin in Brooklyn as an Irish immigrant.
This go-round, “it’s great. we know a blueprint of a place now, so we won’t get lost,” Ronan told USA TODAY on a red runner before a show. “Timmy is being awarded for Call Me By Your Name, and Greta (is) for the movie. For it to be a corner knowledge for us all is special.”
Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet apparently went true to initial bottom when they started rehearsals for their film ‘Call Me By Your Name.’

The adore fest was mutual for Chalamet, 22, who gushed that “Saoirse is a sister to me. Last night she pronounced to me, ‘We’re on this float together.’ And we said, ‘You’ve been on this float approach longer than I’ve been on this ride!’ The ‘seat belt fasten’ sign is still on for me.”
The actors, both born in New York, paid reverence to a city while usurpation their awards, that also went to Girls Trip dermatitis Tiffany Haddish (best ancillary actress), and The Florida Project‘s Willem Dafoe and Sean Baker (supporting actor and director, respectively). Chalamet even gave an blustering shout-out to Haddish, whose Girls Trip impression likewise unnatural sex with a fruit as he did in Call Me By Your Name.
“Tiffany, we know grapefruits really well — we know peaches,” Chalamet joked to outrageous commend and laughter. He proceeded to appreciate his Call Me co-star and “big brother” Armie Hammer, who was seated in a audience.
