New from Every Movie Has a Lesson by Don Shanahan: AWARDS: Nominees for the 2022 Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Awards

The 5th Annual Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Awards Nominations Have Been Announced

A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once leads the nominees with a total of eight nominations.

The Hollywood Critics Association has revealed its full list of nominees for the 5th Annual Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Awards. Each June, the members of the Hollywood Critics Association come together to take a look back at the films released during the first half of the calendar year. During the second to last week of June, the members of the HCA vote (including myself) on the films that they believe stood out as some of the best that the year had to offer so far.

“2022 was the first year since 2019 where theaters saw a true return to normal,” notes HCA Founder, Scott Menzel. “While the Sundance Film Festival remained virtual in 2022, other festivals, including SXSW and Cannes, returned to their in-person celebrations, which as a result, attracted movie lovers from all over the world to return to film festivals.”

The box office has shown tremendous growth with films like Top Gun: Maverick breaking box office records across the world while the indie sensation Everything Everywhere All At Once became the highest-grossing A24 movie of all time. “In a year where audiences are returning to theaters, we couldn’t be happier to be celebrating our never-ending love of film and this year’s Midseason Awards nominees showcase a wide variety of films that include blockbusters and indie gems,” adds HCA co-founder, Ashley Menzel.

Leading the way with a total of eight nominations is Daniels’ Everything Everywhere All At Once. The film, which had its World Premiere at SXSW, has become a critic and audience favorite ever since its release in April. The film’s nominations include Best Picture, Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh, and Best Director for The Daniels.

Matt Reeves’ The Batman came in second place with five nominations for the film, including Best Picture and Best Director. Tom Cruise and the team behind the box office juggernaut known to the world as Top Gun: Maverick were also nominated. The film received a total of four nominations, including a Best Actor nomination for Tom Cruise and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Miles Teller.

Even though exclusivity on the big screen returned in full force this year, several streaming titles received some love from the HCA as well. Films like Cha Cha Real Smooth, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Turning Red, and Fresh were all nominated.
