Critics Societies Roundup 2

Critics2

A few more critics organizations have cast their vote, so time for round-up two. The first one is the Washington DC Film Critics Association, which in fact already announced their nominations and winners last week, but we shamefully overlooked them. And then yesterday we had the San Francisco Film Critics Circle (which continued the Curious Case of Bradley Cooper), and the Chicago Film Critics Association, which used to be the bastion of the great Roger Ebert. Alas, no more.
Now the Indiana Film Journalists Association also released, well, something yesterday, but we are not quite sure what it is. Is it a longlist? Is it their nominees? Is it every film that played somewhere in Indiana this year? Whatever it is, the fact that they didn’t shy away from naming performers in two different categories makes us hold off on taking these serious for probably the rest of the season.

UPDATE: San Francisco winners have now been bolded below.

UPDATE 2: Chicago winners now also bolded.
