A movie which highlights an abuse scandal in the US Catholic Church has picked up a Critics' Choice Award.
Spotlight, which is also up for best movie at the Oscars, won the award for best ensemble.
The film tells the true story of a team of reporters at the Boston Globe which set out to investigate widespread child sex abuse cases in the Boston area and whether senior Church leaders were aware of them.
Rachel McAdams, who plays one of the journalists, collected the award, saying: "It is a little overwhelming to speak on behalf of our enormously-talented cast I had the privilege of working with.
"I think we can all agree the true star ensemble is the real life heroes at Spotlight and the rest of the team, thank you for having the bravery to pursue this important story."
The film is up for six Academy Awards at the Oscars which take place in February.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
