Lauren Greenfield's Documentary "Queen of Versailles" Nominated for Critics' Choice Awards

The Broadcast Films Critics Association (BFCA) has announced their nominees for the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Awards. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln leads the nominees with a record 13 noms.

But as impressive as that is, we're really extremely proud to announce that Chelsea Director Lauren Greenfield's popularly and critically acclaimed documentary The Queen of Versailles has been nominated in the Best Documentary Feature category. It is fair to say it has been one of the best years in recent memory for documentaries, a genre very much experiencing a popular renaissance, and the other nominees in the category are all fantastic films as well.
