NEBRASKA AND 12 YEARS ARE BIG WITH ST. LOUIS FILM CRITICS ASSOCIATION


Bruce Dern's not nominated, what with the enormous competition in the Best Actor category, but otherwise Nebraska gets another early-season boost with the St. Louis Film Critics Association nominations. They couldn't decide which five out of the six Best Actress frontrunners to nominate and so chose all of them, and Philippe Le Sourd's work on The Grandmaster gets another notice today after the OFCS nominations. No word yet on when winners will be announced, but I'll keep my eye out! Lol got nothing better to do...
