The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) announced the winners of their 2022 awards this morning on Twitter, and we heard more than a few familiar names and titles. Focus Features and Tàr were the day’s big winners, picking up four prizes, including a tie for Best Picture with A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once, which took home two prizes of its own. Last year, Drive My Car took the Best Picture award on its way to an eventual Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards.

LAFCA comprises a group of critics from daily newspapers, weekly newspapers, magazines, and qualifying online general-interest publications. After voting today, the awards will be handed out in a non-televised ceremony in January. During the same ceremony, students that were funded through a Rotten Tomatoes charitable grant will also accept their honors, and we will be present again to meet the talented recipients.

Read through the complete winner’s list below, and if you’re as obsessed with awards as we are, make sure to check out the full Awards Leaderboard to keep up to date on the accolades bestowed on the best movies of 2020/2021 from the press, fans, and members of the film industry.
