19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Nominees Announced

19th Annual Critics' Choice Awards Nominees Announced

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) announced the nominees for the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards this morning. Unsurprising to many, critics actually do like some movies. The ceremony will take place live on Thursday, January 16, 2014 on The CW, hosted by Aisha Tyler. Both 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle both earned 13 nominations respectively. See how the rest of the nominees fared after the break.

Awards season is shaping up fairly nicely now that the Golden Globes and SAG Awards nominees have been announced. However, I am still surprised how much praise Nebraska, All is Lost, and Philomena are receiving. I would have expected more nods for Short Term 12 from critics along with The Spectacular Now as well. I am glad to see The Wolf of Wall Street and Her continuing their big runs as well as Enough Said and AugustOsage County.

The categories are a bit wacky in the Critics’ Choice Awards, including such genres as horror and action. I am all for recognizing genres such as horror in the mainstream, but to be in the midst of awards season it’s a bit draining on followers of these awards and the people in Hollywood as well. It’s as if everyone wins a participation award. Sure we all love different genres, but do we have to recognize them all? Do we have to remember that Star Trek Into Darkness or The Heat came out this year?

And the nominees are…
