Toronto Film Critics Association 2010 Awards

The 14th annual TFCA awards have been announced and it's feeling like this year is going to be a very Social Network-centric awards season as they are featured prominently here. Also starting to see the True Grit love and I'm really kicking myself for not seeing Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives yet as it keeps on popping up on lists, as it is here under foreign-language film. I do like how they also include runner's up, because that makes for more films to add to the to see list!

The awards themselves will be presented at a gala dinner at Toronto’s Nota Bene restaurant on January 12, 2011, hosted by Cameron Bailey. At that time they will name the winner of the Rogers Best Canadian Feature Award, the three films nominated are: Incendies, Splice and Trigger.
