Spielberg’s The Post Resurfaces With North Carolina Film Critics Association Nominations

The North Carolina Film Critics Association pride themselves in not just putting forward their “bests” of the year in film. But also honoring some of the work deriving from the state of North Carolina (where our very own Clarence Moye resides). This year’s nominees also contain 8 films in the foreign language category, and one or two award season regulars missing in action. Voting is now underway, and the winners are to be announced on 2nd January 2018.
