The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) has announced its official winners for the 12th annual AAFCA Awards, which will take place virtually on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

Some of the biggest winners of the night included Andra Day for her work in Hulu’s The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Regina King’s One Night in Miami, and the late Chadwick Boseman for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom alongside Viola Davis. The AAFCA also released their top 10 films of the year which included American Skin, Miss Juneteenth and Da 5 Bloods.

“The common theme with all of our Top 10 Films this year is the grace of humanity. All of these films spotlighted different circumstances that put the human spirit to a test,” said AAFCA President/Co-Founder Gil Robertson. “During a year when COVID-19 forced everyone on this planet to unite against a common threat to our health and well-being, these films spoke to the resilience and courage we all possess to overcome challenging odds. The AAFCA members were deeply heartened and inspired by these amazing stories as we also look forward to a return to “going to the movies” with our family and friends.”

The AAFCA is the world’s largest group of Black film critics and was founded in 2003 with the emphasis on film, television and entertainment that highlight the Black experience and are curated from storytellers of the African Diaspora.
