‘The Favourite’ rules the Alliance of Women Film Journalists movie awards with 11 nominations

The 84-member Alliance of Women Film Journalists – which includes me — have announced their nominees for the 2018 Awfj Eda Awards. The all-female group’s 12th annual awards once again salute the best – and some of the worst – in the world of film with 25 categories in three sections. There are the general Best of Awards, Female Focus Awards and Eda Special Mention Awards whose nominees are picked by those Awfj members who send in a nominating ballot.

Which film ruled over the field of contenders? That would be that royal bitch stitch,“The Favourite,” with 11 nods, including Best Film as well as director, original screenplay, actress, two supporting actresses, ensemble, cinematography and editing.
