Shocked to see the annual lists of best films of the year from the top three NYT critics today and not a single one mentions Short Term 12, even though they go beyond the Top Ten conceit to add many honorable mentions. For me it's in the Top Five. Last year I campaigned for Beasts of the Southern Wild, and it ended up with an Oscar nod, so it's time to get to work again. Also, Brie Larson for Best Actress nomination. Trailer:
