Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards 2013

LAFCA had the daunting task of choosing from such a wide and exquisite variety of work. I know that because they were so conflicted that 3 ties ended up happening. Poor LA Critics! So the best picture prize went to both Gravity and Her while Alfonso Cuaron won best director. Gravity is definitely back with a vengeance. Those who thought it was loosing steam can see what is happening right now. That marks the first win for Gravity in the main category. On the other hand, we had ties in actress category with Blanchett and Exarchopoulos while also in supporting actor category with Leto and...wait for it... James Franco. To my delight, Before Midnight won screenplay prize while Stories We Tell won documentary. Another surprise was animation Ernest & Celestine beating The Wind Rises. Overall today, we can say that there is no clear consensus on which film is the frontrunner in whatever category. That is actually a good thing. Every film from Gravity to Enough Said won something or the other today. This is what I mean when I say that awards season are fun. I love seeing different films with different stories and achievements get recognized.
