The Online Film Critics Society release their nominations for 'Best of 2013'

See also

On the same day that saw the release of the Detroit Film Critics Society's picks, the Online Film Critics Society has also released its nominations today for the 17th annual OFCS Awards for excellence in films.

2013 was marked by conspicuous trends, ranging from end-of-the-world cataclysms, A-list Hollywood stars struggling against unforgiving environments to African American filmmakers portraying the black experience with emotional candor. Art house riches abounded; films such as “The Artist and the Model,” “Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me,” and “Frances Ha” stole the hearts of audiences willing to look beyond the multiplex.

Founded in 1997, the Online Film Critics Society is the largest and oldest organization of its kind, and a key catalyst in the expansion of Internet-based film journalism. Over 265 members voted.

Past OFCS Awards winners that went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture include “Argo,” “The Hurt Locker,” “American Beauty,” and “No Country for Old Men.” The 2013 Online Film Critics Society Award winners will be announced on Monday, December 16.

Here then, are the nominees for this year's OFCS awards:
