Houston Film Critics Society announces 2019 award nominations

Jiang Yong Bo, Mizuhara Aoi, Chen Han, Tzi Ma, Awkwafina, Liu Hong Li, Lu Hong and Diana Lin in The Farewell

On yet another mammoth day of awards and nominations this season, the Houston Film Critics Society has seen fit to declare its awards contenders for the year. The Farewell makes a strong showing here, with the two acting nods it deserves and most gratifying mentions in Best Director and Original Screenplay. Otherwise, this is largely business as usual, though Jennifer Lopez is missing from the Supporting Actress lineup for Hustlers.

Come back on the 2nd of January for the announcement of all the winners across the HFCS' 17 categories!
