Online Film Critics Society Awards 2012 Nominations.


Online Film Critics Society announced their nominees for the year 2012. Holy Motors along with The Master, Moonrise Kingdom, Zero Dark Thirty and Argo were nominated for best picture. Really great to see Holy Motors being given such attention, another important nod that it got was for Denis Lavant for his brilliant performance. There is almost no Silver Linings Playbook or Les Miserables love except for the actresses from it. I like their most of the choices, some really interesting picks but a few are really bizarre ones. Cosmopolis, as much as i love that movie i think there were better screenplays than that to be nominated. Also why Cloud Atlas in that category? But anyway i like that Weisz got nominated again, as well as The Turin Horse, Ann Dowd and Looper in their respective categories.
