2016 ONLINE FILM CRITICS SOCIETY NOMINATIONS


For we few weirdos who endure nine months of the year awaiting the commencement of awards season, the end of that year is often accompanied by a tinge of disappointment - the bulk of that busiest period within the season, the critics' awards phase, is over for the most part. So it's with much satisfaction that we should receive a post-Christmas treat each year in the form of the Online Film Critics Society awards. Their 2016 nominations have just been announced, and they're as reliably solid as ever they are. Winners will be declared on the 3rd of January.
