Los Angeles Film Critics Predictions: Will We See a NYFCC Mad Max Redux?

  With the next big critics group, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, voting tomorrow it’s time to get some predictions out for a group that often searches to the left field for its wins. Interestingly enough, its last week’s groups, the NBR and NYFCC, that seem to have stolen a bit of LA’s winner thunder. Winners like Mad Max: ...
