Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

Yes, the LAFCA did go with a common theme from this past weekend with awarding Best Picture to Spotlight, no qualms with that, but they always go a little outside of the box for many of their awards. I really wish the Academy would do this. They awarded Best Supporting Actress to the much deserving Alicia Vikander for mesmerizing performance in Ex Machina and Best Supporting Actor went to the amazing and consistent Micahel Shannon in 99 Homes. I like it! Rampling wins Best Actress and with this victory I beginning to believe she is getting into the Best Actress field at the Oscars. George Miller wins again for Best Director and he might not just be someone I thought was on the outside to receive a nomination, but I believe he is the frontrunner, ahead of Ridley Scott and Tom McCarthy. And look at the love for Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s Anomalisa winning Best Animated Film over Inside Out. It also looks as if Son of Saul is running the table in the Foreign Language category. No shocker there. It is staring to get interesting!!! Enjoy!
