The Favourite Leads Vancouver Critics Awards Nominations

Emma Stone in The Favourite

Yet another slate of nominations led by Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite, which is swiftly becoming one of the current awards season's most formidable contenders, though its win count is curiously low in the top category. And it may struggle with the Vancouver Film Critics Circle too, going up against critical juggernaut Roma in Best Picture, alongside fellow critics' hit First Reformed. The VFCC announces its international award winners on Monday, the 17th of December, and its Canadian award winners at a ceremony on the 7th of January.
