Wait, there’s a thing like a mid-season film award?! Apparently there is: The LAOFCS (Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society), and they’re not only giving out accolades in June or July when no one else is thinking about the winter’s awards season, but they also strive to promote gender balance and diversity in film criticism. So that’s good. And even better, they named Toni Collette Best Actress for her performance in “Hereditary”, in a tie with Charlize Theron for “Tully”. It’s fair to see they’ve enjoyed stressed-out moms. Additionally, Alex Wolff was awarded Best Supporting Actor. The full list can be read at their website. Let’s have our fingers crossed the hype’s still going until December :-)
