West Side Story

Congratulations to Belfast and West Side Story for each scoring 11 nominations, and to Dune and The Power of the Dog for scoring 10, for this year's Critics Choice Awards. Apparently, they mean more than ever before, now that the demotion of the Golden Globes to an awards season also-ran has left a gap in the top tier for an irrelevant bunch of ass-kissing critics-in-name-only! Congratulations also to all these men! You did so well to get in over Milena Canonero, Julia Ducournau, Germaine Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Hall, Mica Levi, Claire Mathon... shit, even Ruth Negga couldn't get a mention. Fuck this. Golden Globes > Critics Choice lbr. Winners will be announced on the 9th of January at their annual shitshow of an awards ceremony.
