More and more evidence that Roma really could pull this thing off. On Sunday, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association announced their award winners for 2018, naming the Alfonso Cuarón drama Best Picture and Debra Granik Best Director for her work on Leave No Trace.

In addition to coming in as runner-up for Best Picture, Lee Chang-Dong’s Burning tied with Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Shoplifters for Best Foreign Language Film. The South Korean mystery also gave Steve Yeun his Best Supporting Actor award. Meanwhile, Regina King took home Best Supporting Actress for her turn in If Beale Street Could Talk, and The Favourite’s Olivia Colman and First Reformed’s Ethan Hawke took home Best Actress and Best Actor, respectively. You can see the full list of Sunday’s winners below. Tough break, fans of Paddington 2 or Hereditary, but you know what they say: it’s an honor just to be in Paddington 2 or Hereditary.
