It’s only been a few days since the members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society released the nominees for their annual awards, and the winners have already been determined.

A Quiet Place may elicit nothing but screams and terrified shushes now, but once upon a time, it made audiences laugh. And not intentionally. John Krasinski‘s riveting horror film wasn’t exactly a nail biter for test audiences, who saw A Quiet Place before most of the VFX was finished.
