2014 Florida Film Critics Circle Awards Nominations

The Florida Film Critics Circle (FFCC) has announced their choices for the best of 2014. Founded in 1996, the Florida Film Critics Circle is comprised of over 27 print and online critics from around the state. The FFCC is established to recognize outstanding work in film, further the cause of good movies, and maintain the highest level of professionalism among film critics in Florida. Bill Gibron of PopMatters.com and FilmRacket.com has served as chairman since March 2013. In December, the FFCC meets to vote on their awards for films released during that year.

Much like the numerous other groups announcing awards and nominations these past few weeks, three films led the way: Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu's Birdman tops the list with nine nominations. The Grand Budapest Hotel scored seven and Richard Linklater's Boyhood, which has been winning most of the top awards this season, garnered five nominations.

The winners will be announced this Friday, December 19.
