Everything Everywhere All at Once Leads Chicago Film Critics Nominations

The Chicago Film Critics Association, a group that includes several writers from this site, announced their nominations for the best in film from 2022, led strongly by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” which notched a stunning 12 nominations, nearly doubling the second-highest total. “EEAAO” not only appeared in Best Picture, but also competes in Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and a number of craft categories. “The Banshees of Inisherin” played well in Chicago too, landing nods for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and four of its cast members. Pic was filled out by Charlotte Wells’ moving “Aftersun,” Park Chan-wook’s riveting “Decision to Leave,” and Todd Field’s fascinating “Tár.” Chicago always brings a little personality to the awards season conversation and unexpected nominations this year include Ana de Armas for “Blonde,” Mia Goth for “Pearl,” Andrea Riseborough for “To Leslie,” and Mark Rylance for “Bones and All.” It’s also worth noting how well Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon” performed, unable to push into crowded acting categories but still landing five craft nominations. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 14th at an annual awards dinner.
