Nominations for 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards

| by I Need My Fix

Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Les Miserables, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, The Master, Moonrise Kingdom, Django Unchained, Life of Pi and Beasts of the Southern Wild will all vie for the Association’s Best Picture Award, a list that probably mirrors what will come out of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when those noms are announced in January. (If I had to bet, Amour will replace one of those titles – probably Moonrise Kingdom or The Master)

Steven Spielberg's  biopic snagged a record 13 nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actress (Sally Field) and Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones).  Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook came next with 11 and 10 nominations, respectively.

Despite the fact that the LA Film Critics Association lauded French Film Amour, Zero Dark Thirty has already been awarded several critics groups’ top prizes (Boston Society of Film Critics, Nat’l Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and New York Online Film Critics) nabbed 5 nominations, including 4 biggies: Best Picture, Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow), Best Actress (Jessica Chastain), and Best Original Screenplay.

The winners will be announced live at the Critics Choice Movie Awards ceremony on January 10 in Santa Monica.
