Fox Searchlight’s The Favourite, directed by rising art-house star Yorgos Lanthimos, led the field of film nominees for the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) announced Monday. The period comedy, a biting send-up of the court of Queen Anne, received 14 nominations including Best Picture, Director, Actress (Olivia Colman), Supporting Actress (Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz), Best Comedy and a host of craft category mentions.

A few paces behind was Disney’s Black Panther with 12 nominations and Universal’s First Man with 10. Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, Warner Bros.’ A Star Is Born and Annapurna’s Vice each earned nine nominations. Netflix’s Roma scored eight nominations while Universal’s Green Book picked up seven.

Those films joined Focus’ BlacKkKlansman and Annapurna’s If Beale Street Could Talk in the best picture field, historically a prognosticative snapshot of the motion picture Academy’s ultimate lineup.

In the BFCA’s genre categories (action, comedy and sci-fi/horror), films such as Avengers: Infinity War, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Crazy Rich Asians, Game Night, Annihilation and A Quiet Place all received recognition.

Winners will be revealed at the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala, Jan. 13.
