Arguably one of the more prestigious critics groups to announce awards each year in American cinema, the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, has just announced its 2022 nominees. The field here is led by two movies, each with 11 nominations: Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's Everything Everywhere All at Once, and Steven Spielberg's The Fabelmans. Very few surprises here, if any, so not much for me to comment upon! Winners are due to be announced two days from now, on 12 December.
