About / History :
The New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) was founded in 1935, and its membership includes film critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers and magazines in the New York City. In December of each year, the organization meets to vote on awards for films released in the previous calendar year for the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, which are given annually to honor excellence in cinema worldwide by an organization of film reviewers from New York City-based publications. It is considered one of the most important precursors to the Academy Awards, although the Oscars were first awarded on 16 May 1929.
