Ohio Film Critics announce winners

While the Golden Globes are announcing their winners, the Ohio Film Critics are going the usual route - do you think the Oscars are going to be sewn up at this rate?

What I really like about this list is the mention of Air Guitar Nation (Filmstalker review), a film that totally surprised me and rocked me. It is a wonderful film and a much maligned one.

Here's the list of award winners from the Ohio Film Critics through Variety which seems to be treading safe ground for the most part. I do think that In The Shadow of the Moon should be getting much more praise.
