2019 Film Critics Awards - In Progress


Today, November 19 the post becomes alive for another year and activity will become intense until a week before Christmas when will quiet a bit; then, January activity will gain full force to end quietly around the first weeks of February 2020.

Buy now all the fuzz and buzz about #Oscars2020 International Feature Film category is over as we assume there will not be more disqualifications.  Industry attention turns now to what film critics and journalists will honor as certainly gives us an idea of which films could gather honors among Academy members.  We all know that not very often great films win AMPAS high honors, best example is 2019, so if you wish to guess right your Oscars office pool or any of the many online polls -some with good prices- then here will find info for better guessing.  Enjoy!

Post is a work in progress until the last critics group announces their winner which usually happens in early February.  Most critics' groups are American but there are groups from Canada, Ireland, UK and France.  As in previous years the first group to announce was FIPRESCI who this year gave the award to outstanding Roma; award is voted by film critics from all over the world.

Again this year will list winners in the following categories:  Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Documentary; if you wish to learn other winners there will be a link to group's official site or reliable industry source.

Most groups already announced -or estimate- their group winners announcement date, those announced dates can be found in blog's 2019/2020 Key Dates calendar.  Most dates come from group official site while some estimates come from industry sources.

Before the list, and to have ALL critics info in one post, is the summary for major film critics' groups; each American major group has a post in the blog and the link is included.
