St. Louis Film Critics Nominations – Michael B. Jordan Shows Up for ‘Fruitvale Station’

Barkhad Abdi and Harrison Ford get mentions with none for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

MichaelBJordan_LeadActorSolid choices from the St. Louis critics.  Love the Michael B. Jordan mention along with the “Favorite Scene” nominees.  I’m starting to compile mine for the “Davis Awards” which are giving me heartburn.

Also worth noting, no mention for Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street but I think they may not have seen it in time.

Check out the nominees.
