Los Angeles Film Critics Spread The Love With Their Awards

Moments ago, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association finished unveiling their 2020 awards on Twitter. As always, some of their choices were a bit out of left field, but also far less so than in years past. Consider it a side effect of the year being so unique, since a broader range of movies are being considered. The top prize went to Steve McQueen’s Small Axe, while other films and performances cited included Carey Mulligan and Promising Young Woman in Best Actress (Emerald Fennell also took Best Screenplay for her work writing the flick), Chloe Zhao for Nomadland in Best Director, as well as Chadwick Boseman and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom in Best Actor.
