Today the Los Angeles Film Critics Association announced the winners of their 46th annual film awards. Founded in 1975, the LAFCA have been holding the awards every year since. Ever since 2009, the winner of their Best Picture category has gone on to earn an Academy Award nomination for their Best Picture award.

This year boasts a promising group of winners. Steve McQueen’s collection of films Small Axe received the top honor of the night, Best Picture, as well as winning Best Cinematography, while a film from the collection, Lovers Rock, was titled runner-up in the Best Music Score Category.

Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland also took home a top tier honor winning Best Director, alongside finishing second for Best Picture and Best Cinematography. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Sound of Metal, and Promising Young Woman performed strongly as well, showing up on these results. 

George C. Wolfe’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom earned a Best Actor win for the late Chadwick Boseman as well as a Best Supporting Actor win for Glynn Turman. Viola Davis was also named runner up in the Best Actress category. Surpassing Davis in this category was Promising Young Woman lead Carey Mulligan. The film won Best Screenplay for Emerald Fennell. Sound of Metal’s Riz Ahmed and Paul Raci were each named the runner up in their categories, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively.

Other films receiving awards (or runner-up citations) this year include Mank, Soul, Time, Never Rarely Sometimes Always, and more.
