The Critics and ‘Black Swan’ are BFFs

Monday, December 13 by

The Broadcast Film Critics Association announced its nominees this morning, handing out a record 12 nominations to Black Swan, the most Critics Choice Movie Award nominations ever for a single film. It’s assumed the film’s hot girl-on-girl action influenced their decision.

Joining Black Swan as best picture nominees are 127 Hours, The Fighter, Inception, The King’s Speech The Social Network The Town, Toy Story 3 True Grit, and Winter’s Bone.

The Critics Choice awards are often an accurate predictor of ho the Academy Awards will play out, so if you’ve got a gambling problem take notice of the winners on Jan. 14. You might finally win your Oscar poll and be able to pay that back child support, ya degenerate.

    I doubt the sex scene had anything to do with their decision, Black Swan got great reviews from everyone! I can’t wait til it’s showing in FLorida!

    I know I can’t believe they would elude to the girl-on-girl action being part of the decision. That’s crazy, it’s almost like this site was trying to inject humor or sarcasm. INCONCEIVABLE!
