So here we are. It is that time of the year already. Was 2017 just a big dream and it never really happened? Or is it really mid-December! How can that be.

 

Anyway, while we ponder the immutability of time, let us also share the 2017 Nominations for the best in cinema from the San Diego Film Critics Society.

 

The Moviewallas are proud, card-carrying members of the SDFCS, and we are thrilled to be voting tomorrow when we announce the winners. But here the nominations in each category:
