12 Years A Slave

The year end award honors keep on piling up for Steve’s McQueen’s harrowing drama.

The Chicago Film Critics Association just announced this morning their nominations for their 24th annual CFCA awards, and 12 Years A Slave leads the way with 11 nominations, including Best Picture, McQueen for Best Director, John Ridley for Adapted Screenplay, Chiwetel Ejiofor for Best Actor, Michael Fassbender for Supporting Actor, newcomer Lupita Nyong'o for Supporting Actress and Promising Performer, as well as nominations in the categories for Cinematography, Original Score, Art Direction/Production Design and Editing.

Vying for second place with seven nominations a piece, it's a tie between Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Spike Jonze’s Her, both of which, along with 12 Years, received Best Picture nominations, as did the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis and David O. Russell’s American Hustle.

Barkahd Abdi, who played the role of the lead ship highjacker Muse in Captain Phillips, received two nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Most Promising Newcomer.

Chadwick Boseman also received a Most Promising Newcomer nomination for his role as Jackie Robinson in 42.

20 Feet from Stardom was one of the films to receive a Best Documentary nomination, and Ryan Coogler, the writer and director of Fruitvale Station, got a nomination for Most Promising Filmmaker.

The CFCA will announce the winners in an awards ceremony next Monday Dec. 16.
