2011 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award Winners

I’m going to be pretentious for a second and show my love for The Tree Of Life’s wins. I bloody loved that film (read my review here) and am glad someone sided with Malick for Best Director. It totally deserves its wins for Cinematography, but something tells me it won’t all play out how I want come January. Also so glad with the amount of recognition Jessica Chastain is getting for her insanely impressive breakout year – and checkout the cheeky nod to X-Men: First Class in regards to Fassbender. Love it. It’s only really the winners for Best Film and Best Actress that are surprises, with a nice shout in regards to Best Screenplay. But anyway, check out the winners in full below:

  1. Somewhat surprising, but nothing should be surprising in a year like this.
