cofcaOne of the final precursors to be announced this year before we turn over the calendar from 2013 to 2014 has reared its head today, and it’s the Central Ohio Film Critics Association, from the land of our own Mark Johnson. They’ve released their 2013 nominations, and it’s highlighted by 12 Years a Slave leading the way with nine nods and Her next in line with seven noms (including a Supporting Actress appearing for Scarlett Johansson). They also gave a few citations to Upstream Color, in case you were wondering what odd little touches they added to the proceedings this time around.
