NEW YORK — The National Society of Film Critics has voted “Spotlight” the best picture of 2015.

Society members who gathered Sunday at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York also awarded the film the prize for best screenplay.

The movie chronicles The Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into child abuse in the Catholic Church.

Last month the Los Angeles Film Critics Association named it the best film of the year, and it is a Golden Globe best picture nominee.

The critics also named actor Michael B. Jordan best actor for his role as Adonis Johnson in the seventh “Rocky” boxing film since 1976.

And Charlotte Rampling was voted best actress for her work in the marital drama “45 Years.”
