Washington DC Area Film Critics Awards 2012 Nominations.


                      Washington DC Area Film Critics announced their nominations for 2012. Argo, Les Miserables, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and Silver Linings Playbook were nominated as best film. Though i personally don't like when Critics announces nominations instead of directly announcing the award winners but if you look at the line-up it really looks like what Academy might go with somehow. This looks pretty darn close to what we think Academy is going to go with as of now. I don't see any big surprises, nor any big snub.
