'12 Years a Slave' tops North Carolina critics' nominations

Posted by · 3:28 pm · January 5th, 2014

Nope, we’re not quite done with the regional critics’ awards yet. North Carolina has weighed in with their nominations, and while the list reads much as you’d expect — “12 Years a Slave,” of course, leads with seven mentions — there are a few quirks and variations here and there. Sarah Paulson notches up a Best Supporting Actress nod for “12 Years a Slave,” for example, alongside the ubiquitous Lupita Nyong’o, while John Goodman scores a supporting actor bid for “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Most refreshing of all is a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for Francois Ozon’s “In the House,” though the film oddly doesn’t place in their Best Foreign Language Film category.
