'Carlos' Surprises: Los Angeles Film Critics Winners

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association is probably one of the two most influential – Oscarwise – film critics' groups in the United States. The other being, of course, the New York Film Critics Circle. (The National Society of Film Critics would come in third, chiefly because its choices tend to be less Oscar friendly.)
