And the nominees are…

On Monday, the Denver Film Critics Society — 16 writers and broadcasters working in and around the Mile High City, of which I am one — announced their nominees for the year’s best.

Leading the pack is a three-way tie of Little Women (above), Jojo Rabbit, and Marriage Story with six nominations apiece. The Farewell and Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood both netted five. Four for 1917. 

And with 41 movies nominated, the rest of the field is evenly split — a good year at the cinema indeed.

The winners will be announced early next week.
