2018 Critics Choice nominations led by Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite”


Yesterday morning, the Broadcast Film Critics Association released the nominations for their 24th annual Critics Choice Awards. The BFCA made their choices and again put down a flag in the awards season. Any movie hoping for Academy Award attention really needs to avoid embarrassing snubs right now. For something like First Man, a miss here could have been problematic. That wasn’t the case, as you’ll see below, but it was touch and go for a moment. The Critics Choice Awards are still just a critics group, so it’s not the Guilds, but it’s worth paying attention to. So, that’s exactly what we’re doing now.

Leading the charge was The Favourite with a whopping 14 nominations. Perhaps surprisingly, next in line was Black Panther with 12 nominations. First Man got a welcome jolt of energy with ten citations, while the lot of Mary Poppins Returns, A Star Is Born, and Vice each got nine nods. Eight noms went to Roma, with Green Book next in line, taking in seven. Rounding out the Best Picture nominees, BlacKkKlansman took in four citations, with the same being said for If Beale Street Could Talk. By and large, the expected contenders for Oscar managed to score important nominations with BFCA. From here, they can continue unabated on the precursor circuit…
