The National Society of Film Critics has chosen "Inside Llewyn Davis" as the best picture of 2013 at its annual meeting in New York.

The society's 56 voting members are movie critics from around the country. The critics held their 48th annual awards voting meeting at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on Saturday.

The group also presented its best director award to Joel and Ethan Coen. They directed "Inside Llewyn Davis," the story of a fictional folk singer — modeled in part on Dave Van Ronk — in Greenwich Village in 1961.

The group named Oscar Isaac best actor for "Inside Llewyn Davis." Cate Blanchett was named best actress for the Woody Allen film "Blue Jasmine."

The meeting was dedicated to the memory of two members who died in 2013: Roger Ebert and Stanley Kauffmann.
