Los Angeles Film Critics Awards 2021: The Full Winners List (Updating Live)

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) voted on the best achievements in film in 2021 on Saturday, announcing its award winners through its Twitter account.

As previously announced, Mel Brooks received the association’s 2021 career achievement award. This year’s winners will be honored alongside Brooks during a ceremony in 2022.

“Mel Brooks is a national treasure and a comedy filmmaking legend,” LAFCA president Claudia Puig said in a Nov. statement announcing Brooks as an honoree. “He not only has made us laugh uproariously, he has broken comic barriers and paved the way for and influenced generations of filmmakers after him.”

Last year, the LAFCA named director Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” best picture. Chloé Zhao won best director for “Nomadland,” which went on to earn her two Academy Awards, for best director and best picture. Chadwick Boseman and Carey Mulligan won for their lead performances in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “Promising Young Woman,” respectively.

Earlier this month, the New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) awarded Lady Gaga with best actress for Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci,” while Benedict Cumberbatch took home best actor for Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.” The NYFCC named Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s breakout drama “Drive My Car” as the best film of 2021, while Campion took home the best director prize.
