Chicago Film Critics Association Nominations 2013


The nominations for Chicago Film Critics Association awards were announced. "12 Years a Slave" got the most nominations at eleven while "Gravity" and "Her" got seven nominations each. The three movies along with "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "American Hustle" were nominated for best picture. Scarlett Johansson yet again got nominated for her voice performance. The two actresses from "Blue is the Warmest Color" nominated as well. Also James Franco for "Spring Breakers". "The Act of Killing" and "The Wind Rises" apart from their particular categories were nominated for foreign language film as well. Very interesting choices overall. Also this reminds me of the great Mr Roger Ebert. Ah! he was from Chicago as well. RIP
