Nominees // 2016 GEORGIA FILM CRITICS ASSOCIATION AWARDS



The 6th Georgia Film Critics Association Awards nominees are full of the usual awards season names and films, plus some pleasant surprises.


The most daring nomination is the superb John Goodman, popping up in the Supporting Actor race for 10 Cloverfield Lane. Goodman's performance was touted all of 2016, but has yet to show up on most end-of-the-year lists.


Also earning a warm welcome is Shane Black's The Nice Guys, which picked up nominations in the Best Picture and Production Design categories, as well as a nod in the Breakthrough Award for the young Angourie Rice.


La La Land landed the most nominations with 10, including Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Actress.


The winners of the Georgia Film Critics Association Awards will be announced Friday, January 13, 2017.
