AFT Awards: Best Ensemble Cast

This is the nineteenth category of the 14th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. I’m drawing only from films that were either released or playing at a film festival in the 2020 calendar year. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category.

Honorable mentions (in alphabetical order):
Ellie and Abbie (and Ellie’s Dead Aunt), Herself, Pink Skies Ahead

The King of Staten Island
Nine Days
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

The winner:
The Trial of the Chicago 7 assembled a stunning array of talent to bring to life a stirring story of activism made even more electric by all of its contained performances.

Other nominees:
The Best Years
One Night in Miami
Blast Beat
