After similar wins in Los Angeles and New York, Alfonson Cuarón’s “Roma” has once again been named the year’s best film, this time by the London Film Critics Circle. It also won Director of the Year laurels, with other major prizes going to “Cold War” (Foreign-Language Film of the Year) and “The Favourite” (British/Irish Film of the Year, Screenwriter, Actress, and Supporting Actress).

We appear to have reached a familiar awards-season crossroads, dear readers, in which the critics’ awards diverge from those handed out by the guilds. “Roma” is the clear favorite among the former group, while a consensus has yet to emerge among the latter — “Green Book” won big with the PGA last night, but the DGA and SAG have yet to announce their winners. Whatever the case, see the full list of winners from London below:
