The Favourite And Vice Lead Phoenix Critics Circle Award Nominations

Christian Bale and Amy Adams in Vice

Phoenix, AZ already had a critics group - the Phoenix Film Critics Society, which was doing just fine in representing the city until the Phoenix Critics Circle came along four years ago. Not that it's doing poorly in representing the city, just that it's a bit... redundant? London is one of the cinema capitals of the world with a population of circa 8 million people, and all we have is the one, and isn't that alright? Anyway, The Favourite and Vice ride a wave of acting nominations to a grand total of seven nods overall apiece with the PCC. They'll announce their award winners on Saturday, the 15th of December.
