Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Awards Nominees

Here are the WAFCA Awards nominees for this year.I'm thrilled to see Andy Serkis given recognition for his work in the Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Berenice Bejo for The Artist.
Both best actor and best actress category looks perfect and ideally it would be nice if the Oscar nominations are like this except for one small thing,Leonardo DiCaprio instead of either George Clooney or Brad Pitt.

Great to see Serkis in the race! Also that Bridesmaids screenplay nod, and although it won't matter for the Oscars, the Win Win best picture nod is interesting (I still haven't seen that one).
