    Definitely not the Critics’ Choice Awards. I went with NYFCC.

    The worst Awards of the entire season.

    I feel like nsfc and lafca are the same people because they often share the same winners very indie/foreign/experimental films. Nyfcc however are more mainstream

    NSFC, without a doubt. Their history proves how committed to recognizing good cinema they are (or used to be; they’ve faltered in the last few years). I mean, they handed their Best Film award to Goodbye to Language in 2014!

    NSFC tend to make the most eclectic and inspired choices, even if I don’t always agree with them. Nevertheless, they too have been guilty of rubberstamping frontrunners when there have been plenty of other good or better options. Still, they get my vote.

    International Cinephile Society.

    I guess it might not exactly be what you were referring to since its members include film academics and journalists as well, and not just critics, but ICS always has more exciting and varied picks (especially in nominations) than any of these critics groups. It certainly breaks the monotony of seeing the same group of people being awarded/nominated everywhere else.

    And they watch many movies, too. Unlike the Oscars, they reward non-English movies every year, which shows how much they love cinema. AMPAS choices are so boring tbh.

    National board reviews are probably the worst group. They always choose the most cookie cutter Oscar bait safe movies. Whenever they try to chose more “artistic” winners is almost always A24 films  and is usually  the most mainstream friendly  A24 films. The Chicago film critics association I think are the most underrated. I feel they are the  unspoken 4th most important group after the big 3 lafca,nsfc, and nyfcc

    I found it bizarre they gave best picture to once upon a time instead of parasite. If they were really about critics choice  parasite  or marriage should’ve won original screenplay too since those two won awards at lafca and nsfc

    And Phoenix winning over Driver. Phoenix was distantly trailing Driver in critics’ awards leading up to Phoenix’s GG win, which is clear evidence that CC voters are sheeps who got hyped up by GG..

    That’s not true Bale won the CC over Maleck, i think the critics gave all those awards to Driver just to break Joaquin momemtum, it is a debate who was better, there are some critics that thought Banderas was better i think Banderas  won the most important critics awards.

    Critic’s Choice does not deserve to be even called critics award.

    I’m still angry at them McDormand, Rockwell, Janney and Oldman, while Metcalf, Dafoe, Chalamet and Hawkins were winning critics, because they are shameless hacks who just want to predict Oscars.
