The Hate U Give Takes Top L.A. Online Critics Prize

Megan Lawless, Amandla Stenberg and Sabrina Carpenter in The Hate U Give

A diverse group of artists defines the winners slate at the 2018 Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society awards, including a surprise Best Picture victory for an L.A.-set movie, The Hate U Give. I still have my qualms about the gender-separated Best Director category here, even if it means a prize for the brilliant Lynne Ramsay, but there's little to complain about here, including two wins for Hereditary cast members, to my eternal delight! Check out the LAOFCS' nominations here, and the winners list below.
