The 1993 Critics Consensus Award Winners

Ralph Fiennes in Schindler's List

The big stories upon the reveal of 1993's Critics Consensus Award nominations weren't at all about Steven Spielberg, but the biggest story upon that of the year's award winners certainly is. Schindler's List wins Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actor, making Spielberg the first in CCA history to win both top awards twice, after having done so 11 years earlier for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Disappointment, perhaps, for Jane Campion as she loses all three of her chances, though she maintains the honour of being the first female director to receive Best Picture and/or Director mentions. That said, all five Best Picture nominees bar one (A Perfect World, which was only up for Picture anyway) take at least one prize from these offerings, and it's always good to see people spreading the wealth. And Best Actor winner Anthony Hopkins, belatedly winning after his unfortunate The Silence of the Lambs loss, proves that double nominations needn't hinder one's chances of winning, though the chances of a non-double nominee winning there were a mere 1/5. Check it out below:
