Drive My Car directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi

Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is the big winner of the 2021 Seattle Film Critics Society Awards, taking four awards, including Best Picture of the Year. Hamaguchi’s film also earned him this year’s Best Director award, as well as Best Film Not in the English Language.

Nicolas Cage’s acclaimed performance in Pig earned him a Best Actor award and Kristen Stewart’s harrowing turn as a tortured Diana, Princess of Wales saw her win Best Actress honors for Spencer.

The animated documentary Flee earned the Best Animated Feature prize and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s archival documentary, Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) earned the first-time director the Best Documentary Feature award.

Other winners include Mass, which won Best Ensemble Cast, and CODA, which earned Emilia Jones recognition in the Best Youth Performance category.
