This morning, the Southeast Film Critics Association (SEFCA) announces its annual winners. Nomadland took home the top prize, as well as the awards for Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress, and Best Cinematography.

Like other critics organizations, SEFCA extended its voting deadline to early 2021 to follow the timeline set by various guilds and the Academy, and I’ll be curious to see if other groups of critics begin to announce at this time, or if they chose to reach an agreement. in a firm 2020 that ended on December 31 of last year. Voters can follow the cues from critical groups, so it will be interesting to see how much influence these groups can have in any given year.

Speaking personally (full disclosure: I am the current president of SEFCA), I am quite pleased that my group has selected Nomadland (it was my favorite movie of 2020), and I wouldn’t mind if the movie started shooting during awards season, although I imagine it will have some tough competition from other movies that made our Top 10 as Threatening, The Chicago 7 trial, Y One night in Miami. But at least I hope our little prize pool can get people to check Nomadland on Hulu where it is currently streaming.

Check out the full list of winners below, and for past winners, visit the SEFCA website.
