Critic’s Choice Nominees

posted by Nell Minow

The Broadcast Film Critics have announced our nominations, often the best predictor of the Oscars. I am hoping to attend the awards event, which will be broadcast on VH1 on January 15. I’ll be voting on these soon, so if you have favorites, let me know!
The BFCA consists of 235 television, radio and online film critics. It is the largest critics organization in the United States and Canada.
