Society members who gathered Sunday at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York also awarded the film the prize for best screenplay.
The movie chronicles The Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into child abuse in the Catholic Church.
Last month the Los Angeles Film Critics Association named it the best film of the year, and it is a Golden Globe best picture nominee.
