Detroit Film Critics announce nominees

Posted on

The Detroit Film Critics Association has announced the nominees for its annual end-of-year awards. In the mix are several established frontrunners (Up in the Air, The Hurt Locker) alongside darker horses like (500) Days of Summer. Though the group recognized Precious stars Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’Nique, the movie was left out of the Best Film and Best Director categories. And Invictus was nowhere to be found at all.
