The Los Angeles Film Critics Association made its year best selections with the marquee honor going to Roma as Best Picture. 

However, Roma auteur Alfonso Cuaron wound up runner up for Best Director; that honor instead went to Debra Granik for Leave No Trace.

Cuaron was also a runner up in tandem with Adam Gough in the Editing category for Roma. Winning Best Editing distinction were Joshua Altman and Bing Liu for the documentary Minding the Gap.

Roma, though, earned Cuaron the Best Cinematography mantle.

Ethan Hawke and Olivia Colman scored Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively, for First Reformed and The Favourite.

Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk; Steven Yuen’s performance in Burning topped the Best Supporting Actor competition.

Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty won Best Screenplay for Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Shirkers was the L.A. Film Critics’ choice for Best Documentary. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse won for Best Animation.
