FYI: THE ATLANTA FILM CRITICS SOCIETY IS A THING


I mean, why not? We have the Nevada Film Critics Society, and we have the Las Vegas Film Critics Society! We have the Broadcast Film Critics Association, and we have the Oscars! So why not have an Atlanta Film Critics Society? Sure, we already have the Georgia Film Critics Association, and they're useless enough as it is, but here's the AFCS to make a few more useless choices for awards season 2016. We've no idea whether this is a bona fide critics society or just the pastime of some wannabe film buff with a knack for making half-decent websites, but what do we care. I'm just a wannabe film buff with zero knack for making half-decent blogs, so who am I to complain?
