For Immediate Release:

NEW YORK FILM CRITICS CIRCLE
TO VOTE ANNUAL FILM AWARDS
ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 11TH

-- Awards ceremony to take place on Sunday, January 7th --

New York, NY (September 22, 2006) - Chairman Marshall Fine announced today that the New York Film Critics Circle will vote on their annual film awards on Monday, December 11th. Among the categories for the 2006 awards are:
best picture, director, screenplay, actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, cinematography, animated movie and best first film.
Special stand-alone 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 Circles' annual awards presentation date and location was also scheduled by Fine. The ceremony will take place on Sunday, January 7th at the Supper Club, a new venue for the organization this year.

Founded in 1935, the Circle's membership includes critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers and magazines. Every year in December the organization meets in New York to vote on awards for the previous calendar year's films. 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 esthetic merit in a forum that is immune to commercial and political pressures. A complete list of previous winners is available on this site, along with a list of current members with links to their publications.
