Awards Watch: Critics' Choice Nominations 2008

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Milk lead the nominees for the Broadcast Film Critics Association's Critics' Choice Awards with eight nods apiece. Both films are up for Best Picture, Best Director and four acting categories, among others.

Three other BP hopefuls — The Dark Knight, Doubt and Slumdog Millionaire — raked in six nominations each, with Changeling, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, WALL-E and The Wrestler rounding out the top ten. Glaringly absent: Revolutionary Road.

The 14th Critics' Choice Awards will be presented on January 8. For a quick look at the nominations, see the comments section below.
