The New York Film Critics Circle has awarded its annual prizes. Ida by Paweł Pawlikowski was recognized as the best foreign language film.
The New York Film Critics Circle Award may be an another stepping stone towards an Oscar nomination for Ida. Granted by journalists of the most influential New York magazines, it’s considered to be a good omen before the peak film awards season, which is topped by the Golden Globes (awarded on 11th January, 2015) and the Oscars (22nd February, 2015).

The critic’s award is yet another trophy for the feature by Paweł Pawlikowski, who has already received dozens of festival awards for his film and is currently being mentioned in summaries prepared by journalists of the most important industry magazines.
Ida is also one of the favourites of the European Film Awards. The film has received as many as five nominations: for best film and best director, as well as for the best screenplay, authored by Paweł Pawlikowski and Rebecca Lenkiewicz. The title of best actress will be fought for by two Polish actresses: Agata Kulesza and Agata Trzebuchowska, who played the two main roles in Pawlikowski’s film. The winners of the European Film Awards will be announced on December 13th. The award for the best European cinematographer was prevously given to Ryszard Lenczewski and Łukasz Żal, Ida's directors of photography.
