After the disaster that was the San Diego critics nominations announcement, their Californian cousins at the San Francisco Film Critics Circle remedied the situation somewhat with their selection today. Brooklyn and Love & Mercy both made strong showings, Carol featured twice in the Best Actress category leaving room for two Alicia Vikander mentions in Supporting Actress, and there was a welcome sign of support for Tangerine. Winners are due to be voted upon tomorrow, the 13th of December. Have a look at the nominations below:
