|Los Angeles Online Fllm Critics Society|
The Hollywood Critics Association (HCA)--formerly known until 2019 as the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society (LAOFCS)--is a film critic organization in Los Angeles, California. It was founded in 2016 by Scott Menzel, Scott Mantz, and Ashley Menzel after noting Los Angeles only had one film critic organization. Its purpose is to be a critics group that is diverse and supports underrepresented voices and they are the first critics group to separate directing honors by gender. "There has been so much conversation about the power of female filmmakers and we wanted to embrace it," said Scott Mantz. They also have a film discussion podcast called "Film Critics Weekly" on the online broadcasting network, "Popcorn Talk" to further their goals of creating "a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season".
The board of directors and officers of the organization as of 2020 are:
To collect funds for Covid-19 recovery initiatives, the Hollywood Critics Association organized a Film & Television Triviathon.
Each December the society releases the nominations for the Hollywood Critics Awards which are hosted in January of the following year. The inaugural awards ceremony took place on January 10, 2018.
