2008 Broadcast Film Critics Awards Nominees

More nominations! Whee!

It’s the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s turn and this time around Milk and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button lead the pack with 8 nomination each. Things are also looking up for The Dark Knight, Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino), Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Melissa Leo (Frozen River) and Slumdog Millionaire. But Revolutionary Road, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, was shut out again (it received no nominations from the NBR) and, as Dave Karger at EW points out, its Oscar chances are probably dead.
