There's very little to report on the results of the Georgia Film Critics Association's votes this year. Their 2020/21 awards have come down pretty much exactly as expected, with Nomadland on top with four wins. Fellow critics' favourites Carey Mulligan, Riz Ahmed et al. also triumph with the GFCA, with only Best Ensemble not going to the critics' consensus pick, in this case The Trial of the Chicago 7, beaten by One Night in Miami. That wisdom and taste is in evidence throughout these awards, since said consensus this year has been remarkably reliable. Remind yourself of the Georgia critics' nominations here.
