The New York Film Critics Circle has postponed its January 10 awards ceremony.
“For the safety of our winners and our members, we have made the decision to postpone our dinner. But rest assured, we’ll find a way to celebrate the achievements of our winners over the next few months. Even in the midst of an uncertain time, we see this as a positive step forward. Said NYFCC President Stephanie Zacharek.
The NYFCC named the best film “Drive My Car” even though no one stops to refuel in a three-hour film about driving around Japan.
The ceremony is said to have taken place in Tao New York.
Now the National Bored of Review, with its Jan. 11 gala dinner costing hundreds of dollars per ticket, should be in jeopardy. But they’re very money driven, so risking the ‘Cron can always be worth it for their decision maker, Annie Schulhof.
The Critics’ Choice ceremony on January 9 in Los Angeles at the Fairmont Century Plaza hotel is also under threat. Yesterday, Critics Choice – which is outsourced to niche TVs on TBS and the CW networks – said it would proceed. But it’s all in the air at this point.
