Benedict Cumberbatch in The Power of the Dog

Another film critics' group declares their admiration for Jane Campion's critical smash hit The Power of the Dog today in the Music City Film Critics Association's 2021 awards nominations announcement. Film writers from Nashville and the local area have nominated the Western, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst, in 10 categories, including Best Picture, Director, and three acting categories. It's joined in the top category by a few mild surprises - namely, C'mon C'mon, otherwise only up for Best Young Actor, and The Harder They Fall, up for Best Original Song, and Acting Ensemble. Winners will be announced on the 25th of January, two weeks today.
