30TH ANNIVERSARY AWARD: BEST OF OUR WINNERS SINCE 1980

Here is a bit of their history and rules.

The Critics’ Circle is the oldest critics organisation  in the world founded in 1907. Film critics became eligible for membership of the Circle in 1926. Today the group  has over 400 members who work in the media through the United Kingdom. The Critics’ Circle is not a trade union but a professional association of critics of drama, art and architecture, music, the cinema and dance. Its objective is to promote the arts of criticism and to upholds its integrity in practice, to foster and safeguard the interests of its members, to provide opportunities for social intercourse among them, and to support the advancement of the arts. The annual dinner is the key social activity of the group. The chairman of the Dinner is also the current president of the Circl and officiates with the Charles Dickens’ crystal drinking goblet, which was given to the group in 1936 by Sir Seymour Hicks who had originally received it from  in 1901 by Dickens’ daughter Mrs. Hogarth.

 

The Film awards have grown to an extremely prestigious honor attracting many celebrities from the industry and contribute a substantial sum to charity.

 

There is a bit of the political correctness in the awarding of British awards as it includes the eligibility of Irish actors and craftsmen as well, to quote from their website:

“British and Irish film makers are eligible for most, if not all, of our awards. The word British in the title of some of our awards is simply to distinguish them from the general best actor/director/film awards. Irish citizens are eligible for these awards but many Irish actors and directors work on what are technically British films and their work deserves recognition. There is no intention to suggest that Irish talent is British should an Irish citizen be nominated in the “British” categories and all Irish nominees know this. It simply recognises the complex nature of film making, a collaborative affair often crossing national boundaries and anyone who wishes to raise the matter should do so with Jason Solomons, current chair of the Awards Committee.”
