Los Angeles Film Critics Winners

Continuing one of the biggest weeks in the entire awards season, the LAFCA has finished its awards announcement. Los Angeles has a tendency to sometimes go against the grain in random places, while sometimes picking rather Hollywoodesque choices in other areas. This year, Best Picture was not quite against the grain, but yet another big win for “The Social Network,” perhaps their biggest win, yet. The film also took down the Best Screenplay award, edging out “The King’s Speech.”

The rest of the wins are a bit scattered and patternless. Colin Firth takes his first major award for Best Actor, perhaps keeping him in the lead for the big win. Jacki Weaver picks up another win for “Animal Kingdom,” making her once considered extremely dark horse nomination more of a reality. Fincher ended up in a tie with “Carlos” director Oliver Assayas. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, composers of “The Social Network” score, also tied with the great Alexander Desplat for “The Ghost Writer.”

Oh, and once again, “A Prophet” was released last year. I’m sick of there not being a proper distinction on this matter.
