The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) announced the winners of their 2020 awards this morning on Twitter. Killing Eve Showrunner Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman, Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Steve McQueen’s anthology series Small Axe all took home two prizes each with the latter also taking home Best Picture.

LAFCA awards are chosen by a group of critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers, magazines, and qualifying online general-interest publications. Last year, Parasite took the Best Picture award on its way to an eventual Best Picture win at the Academy Awards.
