The Chicago Film Critics Association had the good taste and sound judgment to hand Another Year‘s Lesley Manville one of their five Best Actress nominations, so backslaps and “howdy hey” for that. Otherwise they gave eight nominations to David Fincher‘s The Social Network — Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor, etc. — and six noms each to Black Swan, The King’s Speech, Winter’s Bone and True Grit.
The final round of voting for the CFCA awards will conclude at 5:00 pm Central on Sunday, 12.19. The winners will be announced on the morning of Monday, 12.20.
Blue Valentine‘s Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively, and both Amy Adams and Melissa Leo were nominated for Best Supporting Actress for their performances in The Fighter.
Hey, what about Mother‘s Kim Hye-Ja and A Prophet‘s Niels Arestrup?
