Critics Awards: Chicago Obeys The Master

The Chicago Film Critics Association announced their nominations today for their annual awards. The Master picked up the most nominations. That film is definitely getting more love from the critics than it did at the SAGs or the Globes this week. This could be one of those films that doesn’t need the support of those two groups to recieve some Oscar nominations. It could still be more popular with those voters than we realize. The same goes with Beasts of the Southern Wild which also didn’t do well with the other groups this week. Chicago also gave nods to Jason Clarke for Zero Dark Thirty and Emily Blunt for Looper in the Supporting groups, the first of any of the groups so far. (Blunt did get a BFCA nod in the Action category.) Let’s take a look at all of the nominees…
