Houston Film Critics Society Awards 2012 Nominations.

Houston Film Critics Society announced their nominees, Lincoln leads with 8 nods followed by both Les Miserables and The Master with 6. Surprising to see Cloud Atlas in the Best Picture list while Prometheus and Anna Karenina in the Worst Picture. I personally dislike when Critics Awards features a Worst Picture category. Everything else is pretty much the same. Looper again got Screenplay nomination while McConaughey and Bardem got in the Supporting Actor.
