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
