2018 Online Film Critics Society Nominations

The 2018 Online Film Critics Society nominations are in, and The FavouriteRoma and If Beale Street Could Talk are at the top of the list. Other honorees include the criminally underrated AnnihilationRoma breakout star Yalitza AparicioYou Were Never Really Here director Lynne Ramsay, and of course, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. See the full list of 2018 OFCS nominations below.

Full disclosure: I’m a member of the OFCS. And while I’m slightly disappointed to see one of my choices – Nicolas Cage, Best Actor for Mandy – didn’t make the cut, I’m damn happy with this line-up. For one thing, Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here scored multiple nominations – and I have a bad feeling the Oscars are going to overlook it completely. Another plus: a Best Picture nom for Annihilation, one of my favorite films of the year, and a film I’m positive many forgot about, since it hit theaters in February.

The Online Film Critics Society, featuring 284 film critics whose works appear primarily online, was founded in 1997 to “support online critics and provide them a unified voice in the then-dominant culture of print journalism.” This year’s winners will be announced on January 2, 2019.
