End-of-year film critics group awards: a one-stop round-up

The film critic organizations are starting to release their end-of-year-awards. Here's what each group has released thus far.

It’s that time of year again, when every couple days the nation’s various films critics groups unleash their picks for the year’s best. The wheat is separated from the chaff, the merely excellent is separated from the mind-blowing and smaller, more eccentric choices — like let’s say Olivier Assayas’ unfortunately almost entirely ignored “Something in the Air” — are thrown by the wayside for films that mass groups of critics can democratically agree are acceptably and officially stupendous.

There are still organizations that have yet to weigh in (including the longest running online-only film group, known as The Skandies), but here’s what’s come down the pike thus far — and hopefully you were years ago able to imagine a world where Jared Leto was a lock for an Oscar nomination.
