KEY POINTS

  • Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" wins four trophies at the CFCA Awards.
  • "Parasite" named Best Film, Bong Joon Ho is Best Director
  • Lupita Nyong'O, Adam Driver took the Acting awards

After being completely ignored at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” has managed to win four trophies at the Chicago Film Critics Association awards. 

According to Deadline, Gerwig’s adaptation of a novel of the same name won the awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score. Meanwhile, Florence Pugh was named the Best Supporting Actress for her stellar work in the movie.

Pugh’s award comes after she was not included on the list of actresses nominated for the same category at the 2020 SAG Awards.  

The movie stirred controversy recently when it was not nominated in the Best Picture category at the 2020 Golden Globes.

Gerwig could also not manage to get a nomination in the Best Director category. Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was widely criticized for this move. This is not the first time that no female director has been nominated at the Globes. In fact, no female filmmaker has been nominated at the Golden Globes since 2015.

Apart from “Little Women,” South Korean movie “Parasite” also emerged as a big winner. The movie was named Best Picture by the association and director Bong Joon Ho was given the Best Director trophy.  

The satirical comedy is also the first Korean movie to get nominations at the Golden Globes. The acclaimed movie has won a string of accolades this year, including Best Foreign-Language Film by  New York Film Critics Circle  (NYFCC) while it was given a Special Award by the American Film Institute  (AFI).

The movie has won over 40 international awards till now and is poised to win even more. 

On the other hand, Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” took home two awards. Brad Pitt was adjudged Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a stunt double named Cliff Booth. 

Adam Driver is creating all the right buzz before the Academy Awards as he added one more feather in his cap by becoming the Best Actor for “Marriage Story.” The esteemed actor has already been bestowed the same award by the Toronto Film Critics Association.

Meanwhile, it was Lupita Nyong’O who walked away with the Best Actress trophy. This comes after the Academy Award-winning star was snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in the 2020 Golden Globes nominations.

Disney’s “Toy Story 4” was named Best Animated Feature.
