WHO CARES ABOUT THE WOMEN FILM CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS?


Every year, the Women Film Critics Circle acts like it has the shit over the other groups announcing en masse through December with its ill-advised, needlessly derogatory, narrow-minded, pointless, poorly written-up categories that reflect on their idiotic understanding of the year in film. Well done, WFCC, you're a bunch of assholes. I wish they were men so I didn't feel like I was doing such a disservice to equality. I kept schtum when I posted their nominations, but fuck it, it's my fucking blog and you're actually reading this and wow. Fs.
