Now this is more like it! This is what I've been craving, here in the heart of the critics-led section of awards season! A bit of variety, courtesy of the Detroit Film Critics Society. Not a lot of categories, but with choices such as The Edge of Seventeen in Best Picture, Elle Fanning in Best Supporting Actress, and Alden Ehrenreich and Ralph Fiennes in Best Supporting Actor, there's plenty in their nominees on which to reflect.
