Hit sleeper movie Before Sunset has been given an Oscars boost after
named the Film of The Year by VILLAGE VOICE critics in New York.
The BEFORE SUNRISE sequel's director Richard Linklater also claimed the
magazine's Director of The Year prize just a day after the movie,
Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, was chosen as the Film of The Year by
newspaper LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS.
The Village Voice critics also chose VERA DRAKE star Imelda Staunton as
their Actress of The Year - the fourth prize the Brit has garnered so far
this awards season.
