In the pre-Golden Globes daze, a few more critics groups weighed in with their picks. The Houston Film Critics Society loved on “La La Land,” with no big surprises in the bunch.

Perhaps the only upset was Jeff Bridges besting Mahershala Ali in Supporting Actor. Ali took the lion’s share of critics prizes this year and is the presumed Oscar frontrunner.
