2017 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Voting Underway — Updating Live

Voting is underway as the Los Angeles Film Critics Association determines the best in film this year. As per tradition, the group is making announcements in real-time via Twitter, and IndieWire will be updating this post live in order to keep up with the results. Last year’s big winner was “Moonlight,” which was awarded Best Picture and Best Director for Barry Jenkins. Top acting categories went to Adam Driver for Best Actor in “Paterson,” and Isabelle Huppert for Best Actress in both “Elle” and “Things to Come.”

Earlier this week, the New York Film Critics Circle voted on and announced their awards, giving top honors to “Lady Bird” for Best Picture and star Saoirse Ronan as Best Actress. Additionally, Timothée Chalamet won Best Actor for “Call Me by Your Name,” and Sean Baker was named Best Director for “The Florida Project.”

LAFCA was founded in 1975 and includes both print and digital critics (including IndieWire’s own Michael Nordine).

The full LAFCA winners list will be updated below.
