Oscar 2020: New York Film Critics Circle to Vote December 18, 2020

New York Film Critics Circle to Vote December 18, 2020
New York, NY – September 11, 2020 – The New York Film Critics Circle announced today they will vote for the 2020 awards on December 18, 2020.

Films released either in theaters or on digital platforms between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 will be considered. The date for the annual Gala Awards dinner is to be announced. Membership for 2020 is being frozen and all current members will be eligible to vote regardless of whether their jobs were affected by COVID-19. No new members will be voted in this year. Stephanie Zacharek of Time Magazine serves as 2020 Chairman of the NYFCC, Jordan Hoffman serves as Vice Chair and Marshall Fine continues as the group’s General Manager.

“This is a year unlike any other in our lifetimes. But the world of movies hasn’t stopped, and already, even in this very strange year, we’ve seen a range of films and performances that have impressed and moved us. It’s more important than ever to celebrate the way movies can connect us, and the NYFCC is looking forward to honoring the best of 2020,” stated NYFCC Chair Stephanie Zacharek.

Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is the oldest and most prestigious in the country. The circle’s membership includes critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and the web’s most respected online publications. Every year the organization meets in New York to vote on awards for the calendar year’s films.

The Circle’s awards are often seen as shaping the Oscar race. 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.
