You want to set up a prize-giving film critics' group? A tip: keep your name succinct. The 'Phoenix Critics Circle' - lovely. The 'Nevada Film Critics Society' - fabulous. The Greater Western New York Film Critics Association? Hell, even the acronym is a pain: GWNYFCA, which there's a 95% chance is already the name of a village in Wales. Folks like me take no umbrage in having to type out a list of award nominees, but overly long critics' groups' names? Only the brave! Anyway, fwiw, as you'll see below, The Power of the Dog expectedly leads the GWNYFCA's 2021 nominations slate with seven mentions, followed closely by Spencer with six - tallies I can get wholly on board with. Winners will be announced on the 31st of December.
