National Society of Film Critics 2018: Winners in All Categories

NATIONAL SOCIETY OF FILM CRITICS VOTES 52nd ANNUAL AWARDS

The National Society of Film Critics on Saturday, January 6, 2018, chose LADY BIRD as Best Picture of the Year 2017.

See the following pages for all votes in Best Picture and other categories for outstanding film achievement.

The Society, which is made up of 59 of the country’s most prominent movie critics, held its 52nd annual awards voting meeting as guests of the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City, using a weighted ballot system.  For the second year the Society enabled members across the country to vote live over the internet.  Scrolls will be sent to the winners.

The National Society of Film Critics counts among its members many of the country’s leading film critics.  Its purpose is to promote the mutual interests of film criticism and filmmaking.

Founded in 1966, the Society differs from other critical associations in a number of significant ways.  First, it is truly national: the 59 members include critics from major papers in Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Its members also include the critics not just of Time, Newsweek, and The New Yorker, but also of The Village Voice, Slate, and NPR.  Second, membership is by election.

The Society represents movie criticism in the US by supplying the official critic delegate to the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress and abroad as the official American representative to FIPRESCI, the international federation of members of the film press.

Besides responding to specific issues, such as colorization, film preservation, or the ratings system, the Society regularly meets early in January to vote on the Society’s awards for the finest film achievements of the year.

RESULTS

This year’s National Society of Film Critics awards are dedicated to Richard Schickel, the late film critic and founding member of the Society.
