Jordan Peele's GET OUT Among NEW YORK FILM CRITICS CIRCLE Winners; Full List!

The New York Film Critics Circle is now voting on this year's winners. The ballot submissions began at 9AM this morning. Awards will be handed out at a Gala dinner to be held on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at Tao Downtown. Founded in 1935, the Circle's membership includes critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers, magazines, and qualifying online general-interest publications. Every year in December the organization meets in New York to vote on awards for the previous calendar year's films.

Among the categories for the annual awards are best picture, director, screenplay, actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, cinematography, animated film, and best first feature. Special standalone awards are also given to individuals and organizations that have made substantial contributions to the art of cinema, including producers, directors, actors, writers, critics, historians, film restorers, and service organizations.

The Circle's awards are often viewed as harbingers of the Oscar nominations, which are announced each February. The Circle's awards are also viewed, perhaps more accurately, as a principled alternative to the Oscars, honoring aesthetic merit in a forum that is immune to commercial and political pressures.<
