Winners // 2020 NATIONAL SOCIETY OF FILM CRITICS SALUTES 'PARASITE'

Mary Kay Place and Antonio Banderas earn acting honors.



The National Society of Film Critics met on Saturday, January 4, 2020, to vote for its annual awards. Each year, the group meets at New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center to choose its winners. For 2020, 20 critics met in-person in New York, 9 voted remotely from Los Angeles and other cities, and 14 critics voted by proxy.


For 2020, Bong Joon-ho's Parasite earned the top prize, falling in line with many critics and industry groups. The society did go separate ways when choosing its winners for lead acting categories, honoring Mary Kay Place for Diane and Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory. Banderas is still considered a potential Oscar contender for his work in Pedro Almodovar's critically-praised film.


The NSFC was founded in 1966 by Joe Morgenstern and includes members from nationwide publications like The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and NPR. Justin Chang of The Los Angeles Times currently serves as the society's chairman.
