The Los Angeles Film Critics Association is revealing its 2023 awards today, and Deadline is updating the winners list live as they are announced. See the latest tally below.
Hayao Miyazaki’s The Boy and the Heron took the Best Animation prize, just as it posted a record North American debut with $12.8 million. Laurent Sénéchal took Best Editing for Anatomy of a Fall, and the Production Design prize went to Barbie’s Sarah Greenwood.

Mica Levi won Best Music/Score for The Zone of Interest, and awards-season favorite Poor Things picked up the day’s first award, Best Cinematography for Robbie Ryan. Barbie was the group’s runner-up in both of those categories.
Awards will be presented at the group’s banquet on January 13.
Oscar-nominated Europa Europa screenwriter and Emmy-nominated Treme director Agnieszka Holland will receive this year’s LAFCA Career Achievement Award.
“Few directors have been as fearlessly confrontational with their historical gaze as Agnieszka Holland has across decades, and we’re thrilled to honor her this year,” said LAFCA president Robert Abele. “With moral clarity, deep empathy and invigorating filmmaking, her work lays bare the damage that oppressive regimes and sociopolitical conflicts wreak on everyday souls. At a time of increasing worldwide unrest, with authoritarianism on the rise, Holland’s fiercely humane films remind us history isn’t entirely behind us, and that a vibrantly political cinema is more vital now than ever.”
At last year’s LAFCA Awards, Tar and eventually Oscar-winner Everything Everywhere All at Once tied for Best Picture.
Founded in 1975, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association is composed of L.A.-based professional film critics working in the local print and electronic media. LAFCA members hold their annual awards vote, honoring screen excellence on both sides of the camera.
