2019 Oscars scorecard: ‘Roma’ wins over San Francisco critics, Ethan Hawke and Regina King move further ahead

Roma” had a winning weekend capped off by being named Best Picture by the San Francisco Film Critics Circle (SFFCC). Just minutes earlier, their counterparts down the coast, the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. (LAFCA) had also picked Alfonso Cuaron‘s intimate memoir for top honors. These two west coast based groups added their endorsements to the critics in Chicago, Philadelphia and Toronto who had chosen it as the best of the year already this weekend. (Scroll down to see the full scorecard to date.)

While Cuaron won over the L.A. journos with his helming, the Frisco bunch went with Spike Lee, who picked up his first critics award for directing “BlacKKKlansman,” which also won the Adapted Screenplay award. The SFFCC also singled out leading lady Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and supporting player Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther”) for their first critical kudos of this awards season.

Ethan Hawke made it a lucky seven Best Actor wins to date for his riveting role in “First Reformed”; he has only missed out with Philadelphia (which went with Christian Bale) and the D.C. crowd (who were taken with Bradley Cooper). Likewise for Supporting Actress frontrunner Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”).

Last year, “Get Out” reigned as the leader among the critics groups with nine wins versus seven for “Lady Bird” while eventual Best Picture winner “The Shape of Water” was tops with just two groups. In 2016, “La La Land” and “Moonlight” were tied at 14 wins apiece among the major film critics groups. In 2015,  Oscar winner “Spotlight” was the clear favorite among the scribes, with “Mad Max: Fury Road” far back in second place.

In 2014, “Boyhood” had twice as many wins as the showbiz-themed “Birdman,” which then proved to be the favorite of the industry. 2013’s Oscar champ “12 Years a Slave” held the edge among the critics although the guilds split between it, “American Hustle” and “Gravity.” And in 2012, critics darling “Argo” was able to overcome the snub of Ben Affleck by the directors branch of the academy to take the top Oscar.
