Nine Awards For Roma From Latino Journalists

Yalitza Aparicio in Roma

If there were ever a critics organization to go hard for Roma, surely it was the Latino Entertainment Journalists Association, the new group established by Awards Circuit's Clayton Davis to represent the Latinex voice in entertainment criticism. And why not? Nine awards for Alfonso Cuaron's movie may not be the number I'd assign to it (other titles do deserve a look in, and not just Black Panther!), but I can't deny that I'm mightily pleased for it! Not sure the LEJA needs quite this many awards categories, though... I missed these nominations when they were announced, but I've caught the award winners announcement, and I've included all the details below. Check it out:
