Everything Everywhere All At Once was the year’s big winner at the 2022 Seattle Film Critics Society Awards, picking up four awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Best Film Editing, and Best Supporting Actor to Ke Huy Quan.

The SFCS honored Sweetheart Deal with the inaugural Pacific Northwest Award. Directed by Elisa Levine and Gabriel Miller, an award-winning cinematographer who died suddenly in 2019, the clear-eyed documentary tells the heart-wrenching stories of sex workers on Seattle’s Aurora Avenue and a manipulative father figure who abuses their trust.

Martin McDonagh’s tragicomedy The Banshees of Inisherin, earned three awards, including Colin Farrell for Best Leading Actor; Kerry Condon won the award for Best Supporting Actress, and McDonagh’s ‘sharply funny script’ was awarded Best Screenplay,

Rounding out the acting categories, Cate Blanchett’s performance as Lydia Tár in Todd Field’s TÁR, earned double awards: for Best Lead Actress as well as for Villain of the Year. Frankie Corio’s as Sophie Paterson, an 11-year-old girl on a momentous summer holiday with her father, in Charlotte Wells’s spellbinding Aftersun, was honored as the year’s Best Youth Performance.

Written and directed by Park Chan-wook and starring Tang Wei and Park Hae-il, the mesmerizing South Korean criminal romance Decision to Leave (South Korea) was chosen as the Best International Film.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, Dean Fleischer-Camp’s soul-stirring feature-length adaptation of his YouTube short films about a lonely shell, voiced by co-writer Jenny Slate, trying to reunite with his family, won Best Animated Feature.

Fire of Love, Sara Dosa’s lyrical account of the work and romance of French volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft as narrated by Miranda July, was chosen as Best Documentary Feature.
