And now, the group that represents the part of the country that I currently live in have also chosen their winners for the year. I happen to know a few of these people personally, so of course it's of great interest to me who takes home the prizes here. The SEFCA represents critics from several states, with members hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Arkansas, Florida, Alabama & Louisiana. This year, there top prize has gone to...The Descendants. Here are their full winners...
