The evening was dedicated to two members of the Film Critics Society who sadly passed away in the last twelve months: Roger Ebert and Stanley Kauffmann. The Society hoped to recognise the preferences of the fallen critics as well as their own when voting was cast. The full list of winners and nominees is available below.
