Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards 2017: Full list of winners

Winners of the 43rd annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards were announced Sunday (Dec. 3). These honorees will be feted at a ceremony in the City of Angels on Jan. 12. Historically, the West coast critics have feted different films and performances than those that merited mention by the Gotham crowd. This year, the big winner with the New York Film Critics Circle was Greta Gerwig‘s “Lady Bird,” which won both Best Picture and Best Actress (Saoirse Ronan).

In 2016, the big winner with LAFCA was “Moonlight,” which claimed Best Picture, Director (Barry Jenkins), Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) and Cinematography. Oscars frontrunner “La La Land,” which had been the choice of the NYFCC three days earlier, was runner-up in five races and won only Best Music Score.

While “La La Land” was the overwhelming favorite to win the top Oscar, it was “Moonlight” that was (eventually) announced as the Best Picture winner. Indeed, LAFCA loved “Moonlight” so much that Barry Jenkins won Best Director over eventual Oscar champ Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”); likewise in cinematography.
