Curveball! Utah Critics Go Deep Into The Spider-Verse

I've given the Utah Film Critics Association its fair share of flack over the years, all of it wholly deserved, but this year? Well, this year the UFCA made some... choices. And, though I'm entirely unsurprised that they've gotten a reaction out of me yet again, I'm highly surpised that the reaction is so positive. I just can't find it in myself to criticize any critics group that finds three big awards for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, with one of them being Best Picture. It's something, for sure, whether or not it's something good, but it sure is something! All the Utah winners and runners-up below:
