OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

(Los Angeles, CA – November 25, 2019) – The Hollywood Critics Association, formerly known as The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society, is pleased to announce their nominees for the 3rd Annual Hollywood Critic Awards being held at the Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles on January 9th, 2020.

 

Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON IN HOLLYWOOD tops the HCA nominations list with a total of eleven nominations, while Netflix’s THE IRISHMAN and A24’s WAVES each earn nine. Lulu Wang’s THE FAREWELL, which premiered at Sundance back in January, scored a total of seven nominations. Todd Phillips’ controversial JOKER received quite a bit of love from the members of the HCA with a total of seven nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix. Noah Baumbach’s widely praised MARRIAGE STORY received six nominations, including Best Actor for Adam Driver and Best Actress for Scarlett Johansson.

 

Just like in the years past, the members of the Hollywood Critics Society are continuing to support some of the more underrepresented films of the year including Neon’s WILD ROSE, Amazon’s BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON, Warner Brothers’ BLINDED BY THE LIGHT, and Roadside Attraction’s THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON, amongst several others.

 

“The creation and goal of this organization has always been about celebrating film while embracing diversity and elevating underrepresented voices. We believe that our mission is universal, and this is why we changed our name to be reflective of that. As we continue to push for change, we want to be part of the solution, which means slowly building a community of passionate critics who are reflective of the USA and the world as a whole,” states HCA’s Chairman, Scott Menzel.

 

In total, the Hollywood Critic Association nominated 59 different films, including several independents as well as major studio blockbusters. Netflix received the most nominations with a total of 19 with A24 not too far behind, earning 18, followed by Sony with 16.
