The Kansas City Film Critics Circle (of which I am a member) gathered last night to vote on the group’s 44th annual year-end awards.

The Loutzenhiser Awards are named after KCFCC founder James Loutzenhiser.

The KCFCC is the second oldest professional film critics’ association in the United States.

Due to an insane amount of snow, I wasn’t able to attend, but I did send my votes through proxy.

Pretty boring this year. You guys should have done something radical to stand out like give Adventureland best film and then you can start the momentum of it being nominated in the 10.
