Black Film Critics Circle announces 2020 award winners

Chadwick Boseman, Dusan Brown, Colman Domingo, Michael Potts, Viola Davis and Glynn Turman in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

After a lull of a few days, the critics awards are back on with the announcement of the Black Film Critics Circle's 2020 awards. George C. Wolfe's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom picks up four prizes including leading acting awards for stars Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis, and Best Film.
