Chicago, IL (December 8, 2023) — The Chicago Film Critics Association (CFCA) announced nominees for their top film honors of 2023; winners will be announced at the organization's annual awards ceremony to be held in Chicago on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Leading with ten total nominations each are Martin Scorsese's Killers Of The Flower Moon, Christopher Nolan's oppenheimer and Yorgos Lanthimos' Poor Things; other films earning multiple nominations include Barbie (Greta Gerwig, nine nods), and May December (Todd Haynes, seven). A complete list of nominees is below.

Composed of voting members who represent outlets including the Chicago Sun-Times, The New York Times, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, RogerEbert.com, The A.V. Club, Vulture, NPR, and many more, the Chicago Film Critics Association annually presents traditional awards including Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress, among others. With a particular focus on emerging talents, the CFCA also presents breakthrough awards to both an actor and filmmaker with the most promise for future career achievements.
