‘Birdman’ and ‘Mommy’ lead Vancouver Film Critics Circle nominations

12.22.14 3 years ago 3 Comments

The Vancouver critics have just joined the party, always offering an interesting assortment of nominations given their practice of splitting off a whole separate section for Canadian films. “Birdman” led the way in the international list, while Xavier Dolan's “Mommy” led the way in the Canadian section (which will probably be cold comfort after his film was unceremoniously snubbed by the Academy's foreign film committee).

Check out the full list of nominees below. Winners will be announced on Jan. 5. And, you know: The Circuit.
