And the winners are…

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

Of the 41 movies nominated, 1917 (above) — a World War I drama lensed by the great Roger Deakins to look like one unbroken shot — netted three wins (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Visual FX) while Joker, Marriage Story, and Little Women all nabbed two wins apiece.
