Roma was crowned king of movies for the year at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards yesterday. It was a little light in terms of numbers of wins, though, only taking home Best Film and Best Cinematography. Its director, Alfonso Cuaron, was runner-up for Best Director to Debra Granik, who shocked with her win. Roma was also runner-up for Film Editing, which went to the documentary Minding the Gap, which also won the Doc Feature category. The runner-up was Shirkers, which only continues the woes of Won’t You Be My Neighbor, which is now in a legitimate slump with the critics prizes.
Ethan Hawke and Olivia Colman took home Best Actor and Actress for First Reformed and The Favourite, respectfully. Supporting categories went to Steven Yeun for Burning and Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk. Best Screenplay went to Can You Ever Forgive Me? and Best Animated Feature went to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, besting out Incredibles 2, which was the runner-up.
LA incorrectly predicted the Best Picture winner last year with Call Me By Your Name winning over The Shape of Water, but they did get Moonlight over La La Land correct two years ago. They also tend to go their own way with the acting prizes, but Olivia Colman has a solid shot of being crowned with the Best Actress prize in the coming months.
