Denver Critics Announce Nominations... And Prospective Winners?

Yalitza Aparicio, Marco Graf and Marina de Tavira in Roma

This happens every year. The Denver Film Critics Society has announced its award nominations for 2018, and in what order? It's not alphabetical. It's possibly random, although don't these look like they might be in order of preference? Indeed, don't the Denver critics do this every year? Winners will be announced on the 14th of January. Check out all the nominees, in whatever order this is, just below.
