Awards 2010: African-American Film Critics Association

These critics awards are becoming a little more taxing than endearing, with a lot of the winners over the past week being rather predictable. On a certain level, that's still continuing, but I'm a bit surprised by some of the choices of today's critics, starting with the African-American critics. It's not surprising that they nominated a few predominantly black films, including the critically maligned For Colored Girls, which took most of the awards. Although, it was nice to see Christopher Nolan be honored for his work on Inception. It's a little strange that they gave Best Actor to Mark Wahlberg, but it's something different.
