“This year the North Texas Film Critics Association has exponentially grown giving the organization a stronger base with a broad range of talent. With our new membership this year’s nominations are diverse with a strong selection we are proud to announce,” said NTFCA President Rita Cook. “The membership of the North Texas Film Critics Association is excited to reveal this year’s final nominees for our 12 categories.”
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” was the big winner this year, winning in 5 of the 12 categories. However, “The Banshees of Inisherin” received a number of membership nods, and Collin Farrell came in close behind Brendan Fraser for Best Actor.

Another close call was Jenna Ortega in X, with just one vote behind Gabrielle LaBelle in “The Fabelmans” for Best Newcomer.
