Black Film Critics Circle awards: Dolemite Is My Name wins Best Film


Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Tituss Burgess, Eddie Murphy and Da'Vine Joy Randolph in Dolemite Is My Name

A refreshing change of pace is delivered to us this awards season by the Black Film Critics Circle. Their alternative perspective on the best of film that 2019 had to offer brings about some alternative choices from the usual stream of prizes for the same few pictures. Dolemite Is My Name is their pick for Best Film, Kasi Lemmons becomes the first black female director to win a Best Director prize this season, and the BFCC tributes a Special Mention to critic Kam Williams, who died earlier this year.
