Chicago Film Critics Association Awards 1989

The 2nd Chicago Film Critics Association Awards were announced on March 8, 1990 at an awards ceremony held in The Pump Room.[1] They honor achievements in 1989 filmmaking. Twenty-seven of the CFCA members voted for the awards.[1] Do the Right Thing earned three accolades, including Best Film, and its director Spike Lee commented that the awards made up for the lack of nominations at that year's Academy Awards.[1] Actress Laura San Giacomo received two awards for her role as Cynthia Patrice Bishop in Sex, Lies, and Videotape.[1]
