Media For Lunch: NYFCC 2012 Awards or What to watch this weekend

Awards season has officially begun with The New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) announcing  its winners for the best of 2012. The NYFCC  is  an organization of film reviewers from New York based publications that exists to honor excellence in U.S. and world cinema. As per their website, the group was founded in 1935 and includes critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers, magazines, and qualifying online general-interest publications. Every year in December the organization meets in New York to vote on awards for the previous calendar year’s films. The NYFCC winners list is a pretty good guide to follow for your pre Academy Awards viewing needs.
