More Awards: LA Film Critics

posted by Nell Minow

A very tight contest, with ties for best picture, best actress, and best supporting actor.  The biggest surprise was the award for James Franco’s “Alien” in “Spring Breakers,” an over-the-top performance in a film that divided critics between those who thought it was a commentary on vile, exploitive culture and those who thought it perpetuated and exemplified it.

BEST ACTRESS (tie): Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine and Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue Is the Warmest Color
