Winter’s Bone, The King’s Speech Lead Detroit Film Critics Society Nominations

Most of these are pretty expected. The biggest surprises are no nomination for either Annette Bening or Julianne Moore for The Kids Are All Right and no Inception or The Town for Best Ensemble. I’m really excited to see both Carey Mulligan’s performance from Never Let Me Go and Jennifer Lawrence from Winter’s Bone included in the Best Actress category. Both were absolutely astounding and from films that weren’t huge box office successes. Also, I love that John Hawkes got another nomination for his stellar performance in Winter’s Bone.
