Southeastern Film Critics Name The Descendants 2011's Best Film.

Posted By on Tue, Dec 20, 2011 at 12:42 PM

The Southeastern Film Critics Association (SEFCA) has named The Descendants the Best Film of 2011.

The association’s 20th annual awards saw ballots from 47 members, all film journalists working in print, radio and on-line media in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

I was among the voters for these awards, but will hold off on my own picks for our annual year-end film lists, which will run in the December 29th print edition of the Flyer, and for my annual pre-Oscar back-and-forth with colleague Greg Akers here on Sing All Kinds. I will say that I voted for four of the films on the SEFCA Top Ten, The Descendants — an "honorable mention" for me — not among them.

The SEFCA winners:
