The San Diego Film Critics Society Name Get Out The Best of 2017!

Hi, everyone!

So, I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with the awards season.  There are just so many different groups that give out awards in December.  Trying to keep up with them is such a chore.  I’m about to post all of the latest winners and nominees and it’s probably going to take me more than a few hours to do so.

And yet, at the same time, I absolutely love this stuff.  I love the lists.  I love the speculation.  I love that this is the period of time when we can say, “What if Get Out does end up winning best picture?  What if Patrick Stewart picks up a best supporting actor nomination for Logan?”  This is the storm before the calm of the Oscar nominations.  This is the time when it seems like anything’s possible.

Anyway, I guess I better get started because apparently, over the past few days, a hundred different organizations have announced their picks for the best of 2017.

We’ll start with the San Diego Film Critics.  You can see their nominations here and their winners below!
