Since last week's first Oscar rankings on Cinematical, another eleven critics' groups have announced their annual winners. Austin, Dallas, Detroit, Florida, Houston, Las Vegas, London, Oklahoma, St. Louis, and Utah have all come through with their final choices. As did the Chicago Film Critics Association (of which I am a member), whose 22nd Annual Awards came through on Monday. Alone, their victors and nominees post pretty decent numbers in matching up the final nominees. But combined with the nominees from the Screen Actors Guild and the easily influenced (yet somehow still influential) Golden Globes and Broadcast Film Critics Association, it usually begins to help locking in the inevitable and positioning the fringe players. Will it do so this year?
