The Los Angeles Film Critics Association announced their awards for 2010 today and CARLOS won the best foreign language film, here the complete list
However, instead of winning director outright, David Fincher shares those honors with Carlos helmer Olivier Assayas. Additionally, the film tied for best score with Alexandre Despalt’s score for Roman Polanski’s The Ghost Writer. So it wasn’t total domination, but Fincher’s film did come away with the most awards.
At Best Actor, Oscar front-runner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) takes those honors with Carlos star Edgar Ramirez taking runner-up rather than the likes of Jesse Eisenbeg (The Social Network) or James Franco (127 Hours), the two actors most likely competing with Firth for Oscar’s Best Actor.
Elsewhere, Carlos was named Best Foreign Language film ahead of Mother
Congrats to Edgar and all the cast & crew of CARLOS

CARLOS [Olivier Assayas, France, 2010] Thursday, November 25, 2010 7:00 PM
Born in Venezuela to a lawyer who espoused Marxism, Carlos is the story of Venezuelan revolutionary, Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, who founded a worldwide terrorist organization and raided the OPEC headquarters in 1975 before being caught by the French police. The man who became Carlos was educated in England and the Soviet Union before joining the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in Beirut in 1970. Over the next two decades, he organized and carried out bombings, hostage takings and murders from London to the Hague to Paris and Vienna. In Austria in 1975, he led a group of terrorists in a raid on OPEC headquarters that resulted in tension-filled flights back and forth from Algiers to Tripoli as he attempted to flee to Baghdad. Throughout, he surrounded himself with various adventurers and killers and many women. The story ranges far and wide – from Europe, Latin America to Africa and the Middle East – and details the extraordinary career of the international terrorist better known as Carlos the Jackal. Carlos is distributed in Canada by Mongrel Media.
