I wasn't keen on the Phoenix Film Critics Society's nominations, you may recall. I'm a little more keen on their award winners, but likely only because they'd fewer slots to fill and thus fewer opportunities to screw up. Still not overly enamoured with this selection, so I'll let you make your own mind up. It's below:
