Los Angeles film critics are the latest to switch to gender-neutral acting prizes.

For this year's awards vote, LAFCA will also introduce gender-neutral acting categories, with two awards for Best Lead Performance and two awards for Best Supporting Performance. Our voting meeting will take place on December 11, 2022.

(The Gotham Award nominations are Oct. 25, for the more "official" start of the detrius season.)
