Who knew there were so many film critics societies?

And what is a film critic society anyway? I feel like I have one with my friends whenever we see a movie together. Wait, idea! PC should have one as well.
They're literally just lots of critics in a city/metropolitan area that meet once a year to vote on awards. When they were first thought up of (I think the New York Film Critics Circle was the first in 1935), I guess it was just easier to invite critics from the area, as opposed to nationwide. Hence lots and lots and lots of critics societies that now vote on random stuff and have every award analysed by the Oscar blogosphere.
