A few pre-guild honors trickling in.

‘Black Swan’ leads Online Film Critics Society noms

Posted by · 8:58 am · December 27th, 2010

The nominations list just announced by the OFCS features most of the expected names, but with a few welcome twists: nice to see Edgar Ramírez and LAFCA winner Kim Hye-ja lending some international flavor in the lead acting categories, while the Best Original Screenplay bid for “Greenberg” cuts pleasingly against the grain.
