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.
