The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) announced the winners of their 2022 awards this morning on Twitter, and Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest was the big winner, taking home four prizes including Best Picture and Best Director. Best Lead Performance winner Sandra Hüller’s other notable role of 2023 in Anatomy of a Fall took home three prizes, marking both features as heavy contenders not just in the Best Foreign Language category but all major categories. Last year, Everything Everywhere All at One and Tár tied for the top honor.
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 who were funded through a Rotten Tomatoes charitable grant will also accept their honors, and we will be present again to meet and report on the talented recipients.
