Chicago Film Critics Nominations

The Chicago critics do things a bit different than other critic circles, by actually announcing nominees as opposed to just honoring the winners. Things look more or less as expected, with the exception of The Kite Runner and Sweeney Todd both mysteriously MIA. Atonement also got pushed to the back burner here, although I suspect the Academy will receive that film much more warmly than critics.
