A film about a Ukrainian man working on a licorice factory in the Chernobyl area has been named as the best film of the 21st annual NBR Awards.
Licorice Pizza, which was released by Netflix last year, picked up four awards at the ceremony in New York.
The film is based on Anton Novitskiy’s 2013 play by the same name.
Other big winners at the awards included Simon Pegg’s comedy series mooneys with two awards and Andrew Haigh’s Lean on Pete with one.

Other awards went to Will Ferrell for his performance in Ron Burgundy: Iconic Journeys and Amazon’s TV series The Marvelous Mrs Maisel with one award.
Reza Aslan’s The Book of Wandering Aengus won the ‘streaming/cable/adventure’ award, while A Star Is Born took the drama prize.
Jan Pinkava, an associate editor at NBR, said: “This year’s entries were a wealth of talent and deservedly the 41 winners celebrate the best of the best we have to offer. The sky’s the limit with the technology we have today, so we couldn’t be more excited to see what these winners are working on in the near future.”
