Levar Burton to be Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is the oldest critics group in the country, and among the most prestigious. The NYFCC's membership includes critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and the web's most respected online publications.
Every year the organization meets to vote on awards for the calendar year's films, among the first of the major groups to pronounce its winners. Oftentimes the NYFCC's selections pave a path for Awards Season, while other times their picks stand proudly independent from other organizations. The group's awards dinner in early January is also considered a kick-off to a new year of glamorous events in New York City.
