2019 Alliance of Women Film Journalists award nominations


Adele Haenel and Noemie Merlant in Portrait of a Lady on Fire

After the Women Film Critics Circle and the Online Association of Female Film Critics, the Alliance of Women Film Journalists is the second women-only critics' group to announce their award nominees this season. They're also the most reputable / best established of the three by some measure, if to some extent due to the general perception of quality around their usually-sensible nominations. Sensible can read as dull, but there's welcome love for titles like The Farewell and Portrait of a Lady on Fire in the below lineups to make up for a lack of originality otherwise.


Winners will be announced on the 10th of January.
