The Society, made up of many of the country’s most distinguished movie critics, held its 51st annual awards voting meeting at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Center as guests of the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Fifty-four members are eligible to vote, though a few disqualify themselves if they haven’t seen almost every film. Any movie that opened in the U.S. during the year 2016 was eligible for consideration. There is no nomination process; members meet, vote (using a weighted ballot), and announce all on January 7th . There is no awards party; scrolls are sent to the winners.
