Someone mentioned Aja Romano in Serious Question at Booman Tribune, which reminded me that she used to be a subject of posts at the original version of this site, as well as a likely user (I forget, as it's been so long). That was enough to get me to post here again, other than the one post at [community profile] fandom_wank  more than two years ago. Let's see if anyone even notices. Maybe posting a bunch of old obituaries from Crazy Eddie's Motie News in [community profile] deathwatch  will do the trick. With my luck, it will get me banned for necroposting in more ways than one.

Wochit sets the stage for this wank by professionals in The Force Awakens Receives Late Nomination For Critics' Choice Award For Best Picture.
After an unprecedented vote by members, the Broadcast Film Critics Association had added Star Wars: The Force Awakens to the list of nominees for the 2015 Critics' Choice Award for Best Picture. When Critic's Choice Awards nominations came out last Monday, most of the critics in the association had not seen the latest Star Wars movie, since Disney had refused to release copies for early screenings. However, the strong positive reaction to the film led the BFCA to take a vote on whether it should be allowed in as a late inclusion, and apparently the BFCA voted in the Force Awakens' favor.
The film was absent from the Golden Globes nomination list as well because advance screenings for critics weren't available in time for the nomination deadline. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who run the "drinky Oscars" didn't accomodate the film, but the Critics' Choice Awards did. Considering that the American Film Institute honored "The Force Awakens" as one of its top ten films of the year and this decision follows the precedent of adding 'Castaway' to the list in 2000, the BFCA probably made the right call.

Not all members of the BFCA agreed as Collider reported in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Critics’ Choice Awards Nomination Sparks Outcry. )
