The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced today the nominees for the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Their nominations are always a curious case, as they have been criticised in the past to nominate people on their buzz, and getting a full house. This year, they made the strange decision to give out seven slots for Best Actress, but Toni’s in, so who cares :-) She shares the category with Yalitza Aparicio for Roma, Emily Blunt for Mary Poppins Returns, Glenn Close for The Wife, Olivia Colman for The Favourite, Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me? – so, basically everyone who’s in talk for Best Actress anyway. “Hereditary” has received a second nomination for Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie alongside Annihilation, Halloween, A Quiet Place and Suspiria. The winners will be revealed at the star-studded Critics’ Choice Awards gala, broadcast live on The CW Network on Sunday, January 13, 2019 from 7:00 – 10:00 pm ET (delayed PT).

After announcing their nominations yesterday, the Chicago Film Critics Association has named Toni Collette their pick for Best Actress for “Hereditary”. In rounding out a very successful weekend, Collette has also received the Best Actress award from the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society – who also honored Alex Wolff in the category for Best Performance by an Actor 23 and Under and nominated “Hereditary” as Best SciFi/Horror, Best First Feature and Best Performance by an Actress 23 and Under for Milly Shapiro. Earlier today, the The Los Angeles Film Critics Association has named Toni as the runner-up for Best Actress, while Olivia Colman received Best Actress. Next week, the Screen Actors Guild Awards will announce their nominations, so we’ll see if the Golden Globe snub will repeat, or if the “Hereditary” streak continues. Fingers crossed.

The 2018 edition of the annual Gotham Awards was held in New York City on Monday night, honouring the year’s best in independent film and television. Toni Collette was honored as Best Actress for her work in “Hereditary”. She won in the category that also featured Oscar-hopeful Glenn Close in “The Wife” as well as Kathryn Hahn in “Private Life”, Regina Hall in “Support the Girls” and Michelle Pfeiffer in “Where is Kyra?”. One of the first stops during the Hollywood’s annual award season, the Gotham Awards has proven to be a reliable predictor of Oscar nominations, and this year’s crop of nominees will be making the rounds on the road to the Academy Awards. Unfortunately, Toni was not present at the awards ceremony. As “Hereditary” director Ari Aster accepted her award, after joking he pushed her down the stars. Big congratulations to Toni. November and early December will feature a lot of critics awards announcing their winners and the Golden Globe nominations will be announced on December 6. So, fingers crossed for to Toni to receive some more recognition for her outstanding work in “Hereditary”.
