Early yesterday morning, the African-American Film Critics Association (of which I'm a member) announced their winners for the best in film and TV in 2018. And it was certainly one of the highest quality lists of honorees this group has ever selected. I was particularly pleased to see some of my picks getting recognition, including Barry Jenkins' "If Beale Street Could Talk" for Best Independent Film. Unsurpisingly, it was "Black Panther" which took the top award, continuing its run of success this year. Here is the full list of AAFCA Award Winners for 2018:
