The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Critics Choice Sci-Fi/Thriller/Horror Nominees!

Honey Buzz ~ Critics Choice Sci-Fi/Thriller/Horror Nominees!

The end of the year is all about OSCAR BUZZ and AWARDS BUZZ and the past few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind as far as all of that goes. As horror fans, we're generally left out of this process, but in a nice change of events, we're actually kind of stoked on what's been chosen for the various "big awards shows" nominations. Check out the Golden Globe and SAG award nominations, as they closely mirror what's been chosen for the newest round of awards nominations for the Critics Choice. Though rarely indicative of Oscar results or nominations, it's nice to see that some of the films we've been squeeing about for what seems like forever are being noticed. It's fun to be right, and we're getting damn good at it.

Check out the nominees! You can see the FULL list of nominees over at THR, we've taken the liberty of showcasing the horror/sci-fi/thrillers here!
