The tony New York Film Critics Circle has set its annual awards voting for Tuesday, December 3, 2013; they'll announce the time and place for their annual awards ceremony later on. The NYFCC awards are seen as predictive of the Oscar nominations. Last year the NYFCC went heavily for "Zero Dark Thirty," as well as eventual Oscar winners Daniel Day Lewis ("Lincoln") and foreign film "Amour."

The tony New York Film Critics Circle has set its annual awards voting for Tuesday, December 3, 2013; they'll announce the time and place for their annual awards ceremony later on. The NYFCC awards are seen as predictive of the Oscar nominations. Last year the NYFCC went heavily for "Zero Dark Thirty," as well as eventual Oscar winners Daniel Day Lewis ("Lincoln") and foreign film "Amour."

The National Board of Review which often announces first will be revealing their vote on the following day, December 4, so the New York critics jumped ahead of that. Many feel that this is entirely too early for the critics to be able to see all the key films. David O. Russell is fine-tuning "American Hustle," Martin Scorsese is still editing down his sprawling "The Wolf of Wall Street" and George Clooney's "The Monuments Men" is another late entry.

The NYFCC has also announced additions to its voting members: critics Graham Fuller (artinfo.com), Rafer Guzman (Newsday), Farran Smith Nehme (New York Post) and Indiewire's own Eric Kohn will join the Circle this year. "It's gratifying to see our numbers grow with the addition of four worthy voices," said NYFCC chairman Joshua Rothkopf. "Smart criticism remains crucial, and today's membership reflects that. We're now wrapping up one of the most exciting years in recent film history. I look forward to deliberating on the merits with my Circle colleagues."

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.
