“Roma” Wins Big with Online Film Critics Society

Alfonso Cuarón gave us one of the most powerfully personal stories of his career with Roma, and Online Film Critics recognized his efforts. This black and white, semi-autobiographical drama took home four awards at this ceremony.

In addition the best picture, Roma also walked away with honors in additional three categories – best director, best cinematography and best non-English speaking film. It was closely followed by the adaptation to James Baldwin’s classic If Beale Street Could Talk, which received a total of three awards.

The list of honorees features several Oscar hopefuls, but the online film critics made a couple of pretty unconventional and refreshing choices. Toni Collette has beaten the likes of Olivia Colman and Lady Gaga to be named best actress, while Michael B. Jordan walked away with best-supporting actor award for Black Panther!
