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!
