Critics Awards: Critics Choice Award Nominations, Lincoln Rules Over All

The Critics Choice nominations were announced this morning and Lincoln ruled over everybody by raking in 13 nominations total. It’s the most nominated film of the year and breaks the record for most nominations ever by a film. Following Lincoln was Les Miserables, which picked up 11 nominations. Silver Linings Playbook was third with 10 nominations, but it was helped by it’s placement in the comedy categories which helped bump up their numbers. Otherwise, this was a pretty uneventful outing and the group just went with the predictable Oscar contenders. They were no very imaginative. The addition of the Actor & Actress in Action and Comedy films really helped dilute the specialness of receiving a trophy from this group. Let’s take a look at the uninspiring list of nominations. Also, look for an update to the Critics Tally page later today.
