St. Louis Film Critics Awards 2012 Nominations.


The film critics of St. Louis announced their nominations. There are some rather interesting choices i must say, inclusion of Best Scene category is really good. Amour is absent from the Foreign Picture category while the additions of Cabin in the Woods specially in Original Screenplay is rather pleasant. Seven Psychopaths also made the cut and i am really pleased to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower getting so much attention in Adapted Screenplay category. They have uneven number of nominees, 5 in some and 6 in others. Bruce Willis, Audrey Plaza, Jamie Foxx etc are getting their first nominations for their respective movies this year. I don't know how will the Supporting Actress category shape up but Emma Watson have recently been receiving many nominations for her work in Perks, Ezra Miller too but he isn't nominated.

Below is the full list of nominees:
