CENTRAL OHIO FILM CRITICS

There are a ton of film critic groups that award movies every year. Even the Central Ohio Film Critics Association. According to their website they were “Founded in 2002, the Central Ohio Film Critics Association is made up of film critics based in Columbus, Ohio, and the surrounding areas. Its membership consists of more than 25 print, radio, television, and new media critics.”
