The members of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association couldn't pick just one movie as their favourite of the year, instead handing their top award for 2022 to a pair of serious critical darlings. Todd Field's Tar is one of them, winning three other big awards here as well, and making it 2/3 of the major American critics' awards' top prize winners, after also winning Best Picture from the New York critics. LAFCA's other pick is perhaps somewhat more surprising: Daniels' Everything Everywhere All at Once, a bit less dominant in the other categories here, but obviously no less popular among voters. This is also LAFCA's first year with gender neutral acting categores, a terrific decision from this group. It almost makes up for the RRR love... Check out the full results in all categories, including runners-up, below.
