Phoenix Film Critics Society Awards 2012 Nominations.

Phoenix Film Critics Society announced their nominations, there are just too many categories. A rather long and exhaustive list but still there are some surprises. Both The Avengers and Skyfall are nominated in Best Picture, i am happy for the later. Anthony Hopkins received his first nomination of the year for Hitchcock in the Lead Actor category and so did Mary Elizabeth Winstead (that will be in a Critics Awards) for her performance in Smashed. The growing love for Javier Bardem, Judi Dench both in Skyfall while Ezra Miller and Emma Watson in The Perks of Being a Wallflower continues.
