Joker and Avengers: Endgame Land Multiple Music City Film Critics' Association Award Nominations

We're now in the thick of awards season, with the majority of the different critics associations and organizations around the country having already released the list of nominations for their annual awards. The Golden Globes have been the most notable so far, and all eyes are looking ahead to the prestigious Academy Award nominations, which will be announced next month. Earlier this week, the Music City Film Critics' Association, comprised of critics based in Nashville, TN, recognized the best that the film industry had to offer in 2019 by announcing its full list of nominations.

Like with many other organizations over the past few weeks, the MCFCA has nominated Todd Phillips' Joker for multiple awards. It has four nominations in all, including Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Picture. Avengers: Endgame also managed to land nominations for Best Acting Ensemble and Best Action Film. Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood led all films with nine total nominations.

The MCFCA will announce its winners on January 10, 2020. Until then, you can check out the full list of nominations below!
