Washington DC Area Critics Nominations

Well, the first critcal awards are out, and to be honest, they are kinda boring. For the all the remaining speculation with this season, it seemed to be just rehashing the same old same old, where's the surprise nominee that suddenly enters the race? Either way, it's not a bad list, just kinda stale. The Blind Side got some major love, which is interesting to say the least...

  1. I am so pleased to see Colin Firth and Julianne Moore recognized for their stellar work in 'A Single Man'. Wish that the film had gotten a nod, too.
