MCFCA 19

The Music City Film Critics' Association has shared their list of 2019 nominees. 

Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood led the way with nominees with 9, followed closely by Bong Joon-ho's Parasite (8). 

The winners will be announced on Jan. 10, 2020.

Clint Redwine, president of the MCFCA said in a release, “This was a great year for great films across all genres and styles. Our list of Best Picture nominees includes mega-blockbusters on the big screen, indie films, a foreign language film, movies from streaming platforms, and a documentary.

"It is going to be a very difficult process trying to pick the winners this year, because we have so many deserving nominees in all categories." 

Home Page Sports Editor Cory Woodroof is a member of the MCFCA, as are Nashville Scene culture editor Erica Ciccarone and Scene contributors Jason Shawhan, Joe Nolan and Sam Smith.
