Precursor: 46th Los Angeles Critics Awards (2020)

There’s going to be some major discussions this year about Small Axe, a production that is being submitted to the Emmys by Netflix, but which this group chose to recognize with two awards. It’s a strange decision to make, though it’s nice to see Carey Mulligan get her first award of the year.
