Action films often get the short end of the stick when it is time for the precursor circuit. However, the Seattle Film Critic Society seems to be more on board for the genre than many of their peers. Not only did “Black Panther” pick up some wins, but “Mission: Impossible” grabbed a pair of prizes. Even the more death-defying “Free Solo” picked up the documentary prize. The group swooned over “Roma,” handing the little film that could another four prizes. Check out their full winners list below!
