New York Film Critics’ Circle Awards are given yearly to honor excellence in cinema worldwide by an organization of film reviewers from New York City-based publications. It is considered one of the most important ancestor to the Academy Awards.

At the end of the evening, after things were set to get more than a little tense, The Kids Are All Right’s Annette Bening appealed for peace when she accepted her award for best actress. Black Swan Director Daren Aronofsky chastised New York Press film critic Armond White from the stage. And teary eyed Bening pled for everyone to ” just get along”…
