Voting is underway by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for its annual awards.
Last year, the critics association voted on two films for its top award of the year: Everything Everywhere All at Once and Tár. The former went on to win best picture at the 95th Academy Awards in March. This year’s winners will be feted at the organization’s annual banquet on Jan. 13, 2024.
The association previously announced that Agnieszka Holland will be honored at the in-person celebration with this year’s Career Achievement Award. The Polish director and three-time Oscar nominee has been targeted in attacks by Poland’s right-wing government for her film Green Border, which details the horrific conditions faced by migrants who are attempting to cross into Poland from Belarus.
Ahead of this year’s L.A. Film Critics Awards, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon took home the award for best film at the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review awards.
Most years, the organization’s choice for best picture garners an Oscar nomination for the night’s top prize. For the second year in a row, the L.A. Film Critics Association Awards will feature gender-neutral acting categories.
The Hollywood Reporter will be updating the below list with the 2023 LAFCA winners as they are announced. Refresh for the latest.
