Well here's a thing. The Indiana Film Journalists Association has announced the nominees for its 2019 awards, and I'm sure every single fucking one of them will be delighted to be among such exclusive company. The IFJA is the first 'critics' group to recognize Dragon Ball Super: Broly in Animated Feature, or indeed in any category, and for this one can most definitely state that they are utterly... unique.

Why don't you return on the 16th of December to see which of these few, few nominees have won these prestigious awards?
