Denver Critics Hail ‘Marriage Story,’ ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ ‘Little Women’

The splintered Best Picture field got even muddier this week.

The Denver Film Critics Society celebrated a gaggle of 2019 releases today, spreading nominations around from a black comedy about Hitler to the tale of a marriage in its death throes.

“Little Women,” “Jojo Rabbit” and “Marriage Story” all scored six nominations each from the Colorado-based group.
