The Georgia Film Critics Association announces its 2016 award winners

Today, the Georgia Film Critics Association unveiled its 2016 superlatives in film. As a voting member of this ever-growing group of film critics from all across the state, this is an especially exciting announcement celebrating the best in what the big screen had to offer last year.

In summary, it's pretty much what you'd expect from a race that has come down to Moonlight vs La La Land everywhere you turn! The winners here certainly reflect that very tight Best Picture race, maybe the tightest head on race for the big prize since No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood.
