‘Lincoln’ Earns Record Nominations for 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

18th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards Nominees

As we move along into awards season, we are beginning to see a very close race between all of the major categories, particularly for Best Picture. Spielberg’s Lincoln is at the pinnacle of the mountain right now, receiving a record breaking 13 nominations for the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. There is always time for surprises before we hit the red carpets. See the full list of nominees after the break.

Until Honest Abe appeared on the silver screen, Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan held the nominations record for the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards at 12 nods. Following closely behind Lincoln comes Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables with 11 nominations and David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook has earned 10.

It could go to any of these three films among their respective categories and I expect to see a big race to the finish. Also coming in pretty hot at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards is Life of Pi with nine nominations, along with Argo, The Master, and Skyfall each earning seven.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association have added a few more categories this year to recognize performances in more genres than most awards shows:

“This has been a truly spectacular year in filmmaking and our voters had an embarrassment of riches to choose from. To recognize the remarkable achievements across every genre of filmmaking we have added several new categories this year, including often overlooked performances in Comedy and Action. And to add even more fun, we’re letting fans in on the voting in one special category.” – BFCA President Joey Berlin

But those are not the only ones. The BFCA is allowing fans to vote for their favorite film franchise, which includes nominations for: Batman, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, James Bond/007, Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, Star Trek, Star Wars, Toy Story and Twilight. Voting is open now.
