The ballots have been counted and the winners are confirmed. To say 2021 has been a great year for movies would be an understatement and it only made this voting process that much harder, but we love it. Personally, I had to go back and watch a few movies a few more times just to make sure my decision was made and my votes were to the point – they weren’t. My final votes differed slightly from my first ones. Honestly, a few of the winners surprised me, but that’s to be expected. Anyway, without further ado, here’s a statement from the Music City Film Critics’ Association and our list of winners.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – January 25, 2022 – The Music City Film Critics’ Association is proud to announce its winners of the MCFCA 2022 Film Awards. The association is made up of more than 30 professional film critics working in or near Nashville, Tennessee.
The power of the dog comes out on top with four awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Screenplay. dune wins the second most awards with three, including Best Score, Best Sound, and Best Production Design.
“While there was no tie for this year’s awards, there were a lot of close votes and ultimately 15 different films accounted for our 24 awards,” said Sean Atkins, President of the MCFCA. “It shows how exceptional 2021 has been for cinema.”
“Once again, Music City film critics have honored a unique group of films and performances that showcase the unique quality showcased throughout 2021,” Vice President Michael Compton added.
Each year, the MCFCA presents the Jim Ridley Award, a special award named after one of Nashville’s most beloved film critics, who died at age 50 in 2016. It is awarded to the film or person who represents the better Nashville and Tennessee. This year’s recipient is Old Henry.
“Jim Ridley has always been one of Nashville’s greatest champions when it comes to spotlighting local films made by local artists, and the MCFCA firmly believed that Old Henry pays homage to the spirit of who and what exactly this important award is about,” said MCFCA Board Member Cory Woodroof.
“To be both a gripping Western and an independent film set just outside of Nashville, Old Henry is the perfect recipient of this honor. It’s exactly the kind of movie you’d love to see Jim next in the lobby and talk about.
