Here are the Winners of the First Annual Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society Awards

I couldn’t be more proud to be the founding member of LA’s first Online Critics Society right now. For years, I wanted to be part of an organization that would not only celebrate film but also diversity and culture.  This is such a remarkable achievement and I am proud of these winners. There are some snubs without question like Three Billboards, Girls Trip, and Colossal, three great films that didn’t end up getting any love in the end, but I love the range of winners that truly represent our organization as a whole.
