LA Film Critics Association Awards 2011



I found LA Critics association awards very interesting as i saw their tweets coming. Their choices were really unique and interesting. They also announced runner ups which showed even more diversity. The Descendants, Hugo and The Tree of Life seemed to have battled in Picture and Director category as you can see, Fassbender won and also Poetry which i though was a 2010 film won here best actress. Also happy with the Plummer and Chastain win. A Separation won screenplay awards and was a runner up in foreign language category which is so great and quite deserving.
