The 1987 Critics Consensus Awards

Sebastian Rice-Edwards and Geraldine Muir in Hope and Glory

Between The Last Emperor in (mostly) below-the-line categories and Moonstruck above, there wasn't a scrap left for the remainder of 1987's Best Picture Oscar contenders, so look who made room: the critics! Indeed, their consensus choices might surprise some, with John Boorman's Hope and Glory, now rarely quoted as among the defining films of its era, winning Picture, Director and Screenplay, making Boorman only the third person to win three awards in a single frame of the CCAs, after James L. Brooks and Woody Allen, and all three within five years. Who'd have thought the '80s would be the auteur's decade?! Acting awards went with Oscar save for Best Actress, which went to Holly Hunter in Brooks' sophomore work Broadcast News. All the results below.
