I felt like those actors that stay up to see the Oscar nominations, merely to tell everyone they were asleep and got a bunch of texts and didn’t know why. I waited until midnight, so I could vote.
Even though I think this is the year of the “overrated” movie…there was a lot of stuff I loved.
Looking forward to Sunday night!
Mose Persico said on January 9, 2020
Let’s all have a terrific show on Sunday!
Congratulations to Joey and his entire Board of Directors Team and his production staff!
See you all soon!
Renee Shapiro said on January 9, 2020
well said Mose! Looking forward to a great night.
Tim Estiloz said on January 9, 2020

Chris Miksanek said on January 9, 2020
What a great time!
Kathy Kaiser said on January 9, 2020
My votes are IN, but I’m truly sad I can’t be at the awards on Sunday, as last year was super fun! Can’t wait to see if my fellow critics agreed with my selections of who was the BEST IN CINEMA this year!.
Nell Minow said on January 9, 2020
Really proud of our nominations and can’t wait to see the show! Sorry not to be there in person this year but sending my best to everyone and hope to see you in 2021.
Patrick Stoner said on January 9, 2020
Lest it be overlooked, we should remind anyone interested in the awards race that we do not divide the acting categories into two lanes as does the HFPA for the Globes. That allows them to double their chances of one of their 2 choices to be claimed as a predictor of the Oscars. We, like other award organizations, have only one winner in each acting category & still have an excellent track record.
Jim Judy said on January 9, 2020
Hope those who attend have a marvelous time. Alas, I won’t be there as I have a very sick, nearly 17-year-old kitty and can’t be away that long.
Felipa Solis said on January 9, 2020
Amazing Year and Such a Joy to be a part of this Association. This is my 19th year and the honor becomes greater with every year.
Jeffrey K. Howard said on January 9, 2020

Forrest Hartman said on January 9, 2020
Hope to see you Sunday, Jeff. I’ll keep a lookout.
Fiore Mastracci said on January 9, 2020
INTERESTING BALLOT. AND, JUST LIKE IN YEARS PAST, I’M ALWAYS AMAZED AT THE QUALITY FILMS THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE CUT.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SHOW, WHICH I WILL WATCH WHILE SIPPING MY FAVORITE LIBATION.
Fiore…just out of curiosity, what quality films would you have liked to have seen get nominations? For me, it would be: Luce, as well as The Mustang.
Edward Symkus said on January 9, 2020
Here’s hoping that our choices get some people to see some deserving films that they might not have considered seeing.
Jennifer Merin said on January 10, 2020
Yes, yes, yes!!! I’m hoping for that, too.
Susan Granger said on January 9, 2020

Rebecca Murray said on January 9, 2020
Such tough choices this year! Should be a fantastic show.
Steve Oldfield said on January 9, 2020
While it’s always a pleasure to show my appreciation for excellence in Film in person, the older I get, the more I look forward to re-connecting with my fellow critics than the actors and Hollywood types!
Steve just made me tear up a little!
Hillary Atkin said on January 9, 2020
This is one of the best slates of contenders in recent years. Our show is shaping up to be spectacular and I hope to see many of you Sunday at Barker.
Sarah K. Adamson said on January 9, 2020

Seanoconnell said on January 9, 2020
That DIRECTOR category was impossible…..
Paul McGuire Grimes said on January 9, 2020
AGREED! So many strong contenders this year with some of our true greats all in one year.
Kim Holcomb said on January 10, 2020
IMPOSSIBLE! All so deserving.
Jimmy Hollywood said on January 9, 2020
To Joey and the Board…we’ve come a long way, baby!
A long way from our first awards shows, that were actually glorified afternoon luncheons. Even then, they were the coolest ticket in town.
Take a bow, you guys are doing a great job.
Proud to be a charter member.
Terry David Mulligan said on January 9, 2020
Totally agree with many of the positive comments especially Seanoconnel. That director category was truly impossible.
Have a great show. cannot make it. Sadness because I love the interview possibilities on red carpet and seeing everyone. Interviewing Joey Berlin for my podcast.
Leah Sydney said on January 9, 2020
Please don’t forget about BREAKTHROUGH SONG
And How to Train Your Dragon-Best Animated!
Roger Friedman said on January 9, 2020
My favorite song of these was Diane Warren’s song fro m Breakthroverallugh. I really loved Elton’s song from the Lion King but it wasn’t included. It was a very good year overall
Stephen Schaefer said on January 9, 2020
It’s an honor to be nominated and tough to lose, especially for a kid….
Maxamillion Foizey said on January 9, 2020
My votes are IN, thanks to the CCA for another great year. I hope to be at the awards in 2021!
David Crow said on January 9, 2020

Thanks for your hard work and the work of all others on the board, Jim. Looking forward to a great show Sunday.

Courtney Howard said on January 9, 2020
My votes are locked. Excited to see y’all on Sunday!
My votes are locked in! A truly stunning year at the movies leading to some back and forth debates in certain categories. Bummed I can’t make the ceremony this year, but lucky to be a part of it all.
Cynthia Haines said on January 9, 2020
Thank you for making the voting process so easy and thanks for giving the membership an opportunity to comment.
It was a real privilege to be able to watch dozens of the best movies of 2019. While it was occasionally daunting to stay ahead of the UPS driver (Mike) and one was tempted to complain about having to watch 2 or 3 movies a day, a friend reminded me…”There’s no whining on the yacht”.
What an amazing abundance of great choices this year. I feel like I’m making a cinematic “Sophie’s Choice” – having to chose one winner out of SO MANY favorite films in the same categories. Cannot wait to make a return to our always amazing show in LA this year – and spend time w/ great friends and colleagues within the greatest film critics group in the entire world.
Linda Cook said on January 9, 2020
What a great year. I loved the variety, in both the screenplays and the actors. Bravo, 2019!
Shireen Sandoval said on January 9, 2020
Can’t wait and I loved a lot of the movies 🙂
What a great year for films, and what tough choices for critics at awards time. My votes are in and I can’t wait to know the results. Safe travels, all, and see you on Sunday for a splendid show. Thanks to all for all you do to make it happen.
Noel Manning said on January 10, 2020
So very thankful to be a part of this organization for nearly 25 years. Meeting fellow critics, embracing the dialogue, and learning more from so many of you each day about the art of entertainment journalism continues to impact my love and appreciation for what we do. Thank you for taking the time for a rural film lover from the back roads of North Carolina. – Noel T.
Chris Louzader said on January 10, 2020
Looking forward to Sunday’s incredible show!!!
Joey Magidson said on January 10, 2020
Just cast my first ever ballot and feel so honored. Can’t wait to see everyone on Sunday!
Sean Collier said on January 10, 2020

Peter Howell said on January 10, 2020

Felix Caraballo said on January 10, 2020
Honored to be a member of this group and very happy to attend for the first time this wonderful event on Sunday.

Are we lucky or what? Thanks to Joey, our Board and all of the CCA staff for the incredible work they put in. See you at our show!
Nikki Novak said on January 10, 2020
Done! That was tough. I was sincerely torn in several categories. I love being a part of this organization! A great year! Looking forward to an amazing show Sunday!
Mark S Allen said on January 11, 2020
Congratulations Joey, John, Sara and the entire CCA board! What a remarkable journey it’s been! From a dirty dozen eating stale sandwiches in a hotel boardroom, to the unforgettable growth at the Beverly Hills Hotel luncheon, to where we are now: the barometer by which real movie award shows should be measured.
An amazing year for films with nearly impossible multiple movie ties to settle, and an equally amazing quarter century mark for our endeavor.
So proud to be a part of this for most of my life and as much as I’m looking forward to seeing what happens on stage- I’m really most excited to look around the tables at my friends that I’ve grown up with. Love you all and see you SUNDAY!
Karen Gordon said on January 11, 2020
Great nominees. I found voting for just one painful! So much incredible work this past year on screen. Also last year was the first time I got to meet fellow CCA members outside of Toronto which was a wonderful thing. Thank you to the organizers and especially to the uber patient Sara Voorhees! Wish I could be there tomorrow! I can hardly wait to see who the winners are.
Josh Board said on January 12, 2020
A wonderful night, as usual.
My only complain was…our table never got dinner! We heard about these burritos, but never saw any. What’s the deal? If I would’ve known that we wouldn’t get any, I would’ve eaten more sliders at the reception before hand. Two other women at our table were also a bit upset about it, and keep asking people “When is food being brought out to us?”
Chris Miksanek said on January 13, 2020
I have heard a few people complain in the past (though not yesterday) about the food, as for me, when I hear “plant-based” I take that as code for “eat before you get here.” I don’t think there will ever be a meal that will please everyone and some of the biggest stars don’t eat at all, anyway. That said, yesterday was the best of my 11 CCAs. Joey and company outdid themselves making me that much prouder to be associated with the group. The weather was awesome and we were in a room with the biggest names in the world, life is truly wonderful. #AMIRIGHT
