Exclusive: NY Film Critics Date Change to Tues Nov 29th


Exclusive: The New York Film Critics Circle is putting off its vote by one day. They’re moving to November 29th from November 28th. The reason is to make sure every film that’s possibly eligible has been seen by everyone. Originally the NYFCC was set to vote on Monday. Either way, they beat the less serious National Board of Review, the Golden Globes and other groups. Some films, like Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” have been stragglers this awards season. Complicating that is the Thanksgiving holiday.
