Awards for French Cinema from The Los Angeles Film Critics Association

December 23, 2013 | By Adrien Sarre

Founded in 1975, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) consists of LA-based professional film critics who present annual awards for excellence in the film industry. Each December, LAFCA members vote on the year's Achievement Awards for success behind and in front of the camera. Plaques of recognition are presented in a ceremony mid-January. LAFCA's choices are often considered significant in predicting the winners of the Academy Awards.

This year, LAFCA has recognized a number of French and French-related films. Adèle Exarchopoulos was awarded alongside Cate Blanchett Best Actress for her performance in Blue is the Warmest Color. Blue is the Warmest Color was also recognized as the Best Foreign Language film of 2013. French animation film Ernest & Celestine took the award for Best Animation. Two other films with French casts and crews, Before Midnight and Inside Llewyn Davis, won awards for Best Screenplay and Best Music Score, respectively.
