2016 Film Critics Awards


As really enjoy when I guess right almost all Oscar winners and knowing that guessing is done best by following awards buzz and not considering how good movies are, then this year have to do again the critics' post and today is a good day to start post that will be a work in progress until the last group announces their winner which will happen in early February 2017.

Most critics' groups are American but you will also find groups from Canada, Ireland and UK. This year will include for again the FIPRESCI Grand Prix, an award that is voted by 553 film critics from all over the world. As in previous years' posts will publish link to read all winners and will list winners in the following categories: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Documentary. Before the list, and to have ALL critics in one post, is the summary for the major film critics' groups (each has an individual post in blog).
This year decide to include estimate dates for each group announcement in the 2016/2017 Key Dates Calendar. Most dates come from official site announcements while some are tentative from industry sources.
