Select film critic groups hand out their yearly awards

Posted: December 9, 2012 in Movies

It’s the holiday season and that means every movie critic organization from shore to shore is handing out their yearly awards for who they think is the best movie of the year, best actor, director and so forth.  It all gets a little hectic keeping up with the who’s who and what’s what during these times, especially with the Golden Globe nominations being handed out later this week.  However, these critic groups are very important when piecing together clues about who’s the front runners for Academy Awards.
