Online LA Critics noms: ‘Black Panther, ‘The Favourite,’ ‘A Star Is Born,’ ‘BlacKkKlansman’ and more

The new organization, only in its second year, dropped their nominations today with The Favourite and Black Panther topping list with ten each, while A Star is Born earns nine, and BlacKkKlansman earns eight.

Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade scored six nominations. Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk was also well-received by the members of the LAOFCS as the film scored a total of five nominations including Best Supporting Actress for critics’ winner Regina King.

The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society comes with quite a few categories like Best Blockbuster and Best Action film to spread the wealth, ala the Critics’ Choice Awards, and also separate the Best Director category into Male and Female.  

“In a year where diversity and representation have been at the forefront of so many conversations, I believe that the LAOFCS nominations this year proves how much representation truly matters. There have been a lot of great films this year that have tackled important issues, so I am thrilled to see that reflected in our nominations,” added LAOFCS’ Scott Menzel.

Here is the full list of nominations. Winners will be announced at the Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles on January 9, 2019.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
