Diversity Wins At Philadelphia Film Critics Circle Awards

Viola Davis in Widows

The Philadelphia Film Critics Circle is a relatively new critics group on the scene, but it's undoubtedly a welcome one, as evidenced by their fine lineup of award winners for 2018. You'll never go wrong with me picking Roma as your Best Picture choice, but the PFCC didn't stop there with their fine tastes, as there were big wins for films such as If Beale Street Could Talk, Suspiria and Widows - go Viola!
