Armond's ejection from the organization seems reasonable (if regrettably 
messy); but does the practice of bestowing honors to films and 
filmmakers and then hobnobbing with them at ceremonies and industry 
parties? "Critics should not be in the business of giving out awards," 
Times critic AO Scott (who's professionally forbidden to belong to any 
awards-bestowing critics groups) wrote on Twitter, continuing, 
"Criticism rests on the independence and integrity of the singular 
voice, and group voting+partying with the winners undermines that."
