It’s impossible to keep up with all the year-end laurels being handed out by individuals, organizations, critics groups, etc., but as the New York Film Critics Circle is practically in our backyard (or, anyway, close enough to us that we sometimes try to peer over our back fence see what’s going on there). They met and voted today; as ever, respectable consensus wins out, and also Carlos. Awards after the jump; awkward inside-baseball anecdotes hopefully to leak out soon:
