Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association Favours The Favourite In 2018 Nominations

Updated: Dec 7, 2018

Emma Stone in The Favourite

It's December at last (literally), and thus the ideal time for an early-announcing film critics group to get their foot in the door of awards season without looking too eager / desperate (directly aimed at the NYFCC ngl). The Favourite comes out top with the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, whose 2018 award nominations were announced mere moments ago - the Yorgos Lanthimos period piece scores ten mentions to closest rival A Star Is Born's eight, though both ought to watch out for NYFCC Best Film winner Roma, also up for the top award here. Winners are just around the corner, due to be revealed on the 3rd of December. Check out all the nominees below.
