2019 Columbus Film Critics Association award nominations announced


Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh in Little Women

For awards season veterans (such as myself, I might argue), the Columbus Film Critics Association's award nominations announcement is a sure sign we're over the holiday hump and into the second part of the season. Often, that'd occur in January, but we're getting there a little earlier this year - it is, after all, a shorter-than-usual run to Oscar night.


Nine nods is the maximum for any movie this year with the CFCA (formerly the Central Ohio Film Critics Association). It's reached by Little Women and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, the former perhaps providing us with another sure sign: that Greta Gerwig's period drama is making its presence felt as it reaches ever more audiences.


Winners are due to be announced on the 2nd of January.
