I’ve been playing catch-up with my favorites to win awards in this busy month. Also for the moment, I don’t have a working television set and as a result, missed this year’s Critics’ Choice ceremony. I’ll have to take care of that before the next award show for this season. However, I thought I’d share who my favorite nominees were, just for a comparison to the winners. I was undecided on a few of these and hadn’t heard about or seen nominated movies and shows in some categories.
