The New York Film Critics Circle announced today that it will postpone its 2022 awards ceremony due to the recent COVID-19 surge across the country, a new date will be announced sometime early next year.

The decision to delay the event is based on concern for the health and safety of the winners, members, and all other guests. The ceremony was previously scheduled to take place on Monday, January 10 at Tao Downtown.

NYFCC: Lady Gaga, Benedict Cumberbatch Take Acting Honors

"Out of safety concerns for our award winners and our members, we've made the decision to postpone our dinner. But rest assured, we're going to find a way to celebrate the accomplishments of our winners in the coming months. Even in the midst of an uncertain time, we see this as a positive step forward." stated NYFCC Chair Stephanie Zacharek.
The group voted on their annual awards this past month. Drive My Car was awarded Best Film and Jane Campion was named Best Director for The Power of The Dog. Lady Gaga was selected as Best Actress for House of Gucci. Benedict Cumberbatch was chosen as Best Actor for The Power of the Dog. Special Awards were given to Maya Cade for the creation of the Black Film Archive, to Diane Weyermann, posthumously, for supporting daring and impactful filmmaking at Sundance and Participant and to Marshall Fine for his years of service as NYFCC's General Manager and decades on the NY film scene. Full list of winners below.
Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is the oldest and most prestigious critics group 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 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.
