Now that awards season is fully revving up, all sorts of nominations are coming out, e.g. the Independent Spirit Awards announcement two weeks ago or tomorrow's Golden Globes list. (Check in early for that, as I'll be posting all of the nods). Just this morning, the Critics' Choice nominees were released, with Inglourious Basterds and Nine earning a record-breaking ten nods each.
I know that not everyone follows the Critics' Choice Awards or perhaps the American Film Institute's honors (which were also just announced), but I enjoy checking out their lists as a sort of sneak peek for the bigger name honors later in the season. While Inglourious Basterds hasn't been leading the pack for Academy Awards buzz, this news makes me curious to see if Brad Pitt and his rebels pop up again as the awards nods keep rolling in.
