'12 Years a Slave' leads yet another critics group's nominations, in San Diego

Posted by · 1:23 pm · December 10th, 2013

You guessed it, another regional group has gone for “12 Years a Slave” in a big way. As noted in yesterday’s Oscar column, these groups speak to consensus more than the more “prestigious” groups that went last week. Though it’s not to say the critics groups across the country won’t be without their quirks that may not easily translate to the Academy. For instance, I find it interesting (in a good way) that “Short Term 12” has been doing so well with these groups. Here the film landed five nominations. Anyway, check out the full list below. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 11. And as always, keep track of the season at The Circuit.
