Los Angeles Film Critics Awards: Updating Live


The Los Angeles Film Critics Association is selecting and announcing its annual awards on Sunday. TheWrap will update the list of winners as they are announced.

In the first award of the day, Claire Mathon was voted the prize for cinematography for her work on both "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" and "Atlantics," with Roger Deakins named runner-up for "1917." Dan Levy was honored for his music to the animated film "I Lost My Body."

Four times over the years, the L.A. critics have named a foreign-language film the year's best, with "Roma" winning last year, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" in 2000, "Letters From Iwo Jima" in 2006 and "Amour" in 2012.
Particularly icn the acting categories, the LAFCA is known for making more idiosyncratic choices than most awards voting bodies.

Last year, five of the LAFCA winners went on to win the Oscar: actresses Olivia Colman and Regina King, animated film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse," "Roma" cinematographer Alfonso Cuaron and "Black Panther" production designer Hannah Beachler.

The LAFCA best-film winner has won the Oscar for Best Picture 10 times in the 45 years the organization has been giving out awards, including three times in the last decade: "The Hurt Locker" in 2009, "Spotlight" in 2015 and "Moonlight" in 2016.

The group consists of more than 50 Los Angeles-based film critics working in print and electronic media. (TheWrap's Alonso Duralde is a member.)

The awards will be given out at an awards dinner on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020, at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City. Also at that ceremony, Elaine May will be honored with this year's Career Achievement Award.
