Will Martin Scorsese Film Meet New York Film Critics Deadline?

The New York Film Critics Circle will be the first critics group out of the gate this year, voting Dec. 3 on awards and announcing the results immediately thereafter.

The National Board of Review has pegged its awards announcement for Dec. 4.

The big question is whether Paramount’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” directed by Martin Scorsese,  will meet the deadline. The film is scheduled to open Nov. 15, but it’s not clear when it will be ready or indeed if it will open this year.

The early Oscar season has created previous situations in which films in post-production come up against looming voting deadlines. In 2011, the N.Y. group delayed voting one day, to Nov. 29, to accommodate Sony’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” However, Warner Bros.’ 2011 “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” missed out on the voting for both NYFCC and NBR, since the pic wasn’t ready until Dec. 2.

Despite missing out on the attention of some groups, the pic went on to earn two Oscar nominations anyway, for best pic and supporting actor (Max Von Sydow).

The NYFCC will announce the day and venue of its awards ceremony at a later date.

Nominations for the Gotham Awards will be announced Oct. 24, and the Indie Spirit Awards nominations are announced Nov. 26. The season kicks into high gear in December, including SAG Award noms Dec. 11, and Golden Globe noms the following day.

Wednesday’s NYFCC announcement included the names of four critics joining the group: Graham Fuller (artinfo.com), Rafer Guzman (Newsday), Eric Kohn (Indiewire) and Farran Smith Nehme (New York Post).

The New York Film Critics Circle was founded in 1935. Joshua Rothkopf is the current chairman.
