Jordan Peele’s massive hit, Get Out scores nominations for Best Male Director and Best First Feature.

Studio films such as Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Blade Runner 2049 are also among the nominations scoring five nominations each.

A few smaller released films have found their place on the nominations list including Neon’s Colossal, Trademark Films & Break Thru Films’ Loving Vincent, and the Sundance Institute’s Columbus.

Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet are each nominated for Best Actress and Actor as well as Best Performance by an Actor or Actress Under the Age of 23.

The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is pleased to announce that it is the first ever critics group to feature two Best Director categories; one for female and one for male. “There has been so much conversation about the power of female filmmakers and we wanted to embrace it,” said Mantz. “There is a Best Actor and Best Actress category as well as Best Supporting Actor and Actress, so why not have a Best Male Director and Best Female Director category?” asked Menzel.

In total, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society members have nominated over forty different films ranging from smaller art-house releases to major blockbusters.

Angelina Jolie with Special Guest Loung Ung, followed by a screening of their film, First They Killed My Father

Actor-Director-Producer-Writer Angelina Jolie, with Cambodian author and activist Loung Ung, will talk with Moderator Annette Insdorf about their film, First They Killed My Father, which will be screened after the onstage discussion.

Although Angelina Jolie is best known for her performances in such films as Girl, Interrupted (for which she won an Academy Award), Lara Croft, A Mighty Heart (as Mariane Pearl), Salt and Maleficent, she has become a major creative force behind the camera. First They Killed My Father is her fourth film as a director, following In the Land of Blood and Honey, Unbroken and By the Sea.

She also co-wrote the screenplay with Loung Ung, whose bestselling memoir the film is based upon. The story is told through her eyes, from the age of five — starting in 1975, when the Khmer Rouge came to power — to nine years old. Ung also serves as an Executive Producer on the film.

First They Killed My Father (2 hours, 16 minutes) is a Netflix film, produced by Jolie and Rithy Panh, the renowned Cambodian director of the Oscar-nominated The Missing Picture, and himself a survivor of the Khmer Rouge. It is the official entry from Cambodia for the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film.
