Online Film Critics Society Announces Award Nominees

The Online Film Critics Society was founded in 1997 and consists of almost 300 members (including our own Editor-in-Chief Don Shanahan) around the world who are online film journalists, historians, and scholars. Their mission is to encourage film goers to be engaged with the content they are watching and use the internet as a legitimate means of news. On January 17, they announced nominations for their 2023 awards. Oppenheimer leads the pack with twelve and not far behind is Poor Things with eleven. Barbie trails ever so slightly with nine while Past Lives and Anatomy of a Fall each garnered five nominations.
