Unsurprisingly, given the warm reception it got during its world premiere last Saturday night, Edgar Wright’s upcoming Baby Driver was one of the top winners, beating out movies like James Franco’s The Disaster Artist or Atomic Blonde for the Headliner Award. Meanwhile, Jessica M.

Other recognized entries: Kumail Nanjiani’s The Big Sick, an episodic award for Netflix’s Dear White People TV series, and the comedy Mr. Roosevelt, directed, written by, and starring SNL alum Noël Wells. Wells recently made headlines by talking about how happy she was to be done with the NBC sketch show.
