    Were foreign films not eligible or are they just basic? So weird not to include Maren Ade in any of the female only categories.

    What is this fuckery?!

    AWFJ Hall of Shame Award
    Sharon Maguire and Renee Zellwegger for Bridget Jones’s Baby
    Renee comes back to critical acclaim and (overseas) box office success and this is how she is treated?

    No wonder she went away for so long!
    All the nominations in the world are free, but...

    This is the third time they nominated her. I'm sick of it. There are a lot of actresses who only star in both critical AND box office flops but they choose to pick on McCarthy

    In Good Company

    Next year, we could have a new category with the difference between Huppert and Ulliel in Eva ... this time, the woman will be the older.

    What I found weird, with the exception of Satellite, Negga was only capable to win awards in specific groups of critics (Related to African Americans or this one), but not in open circles.

    Also, this is the fourth time LeJend has won the award for "Actress Most in Need Of A New Agent", right ?
