LA Film Critics pick ‘There Will Be Blood’ as best film


The oil-boom epic There Will Be Blood was chosen as 2007's best film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, one of the first key groups to weigh in during the long buildup to the Academy Awards.

Based on the novel Oil! by Upton Sinclair, the film received three other honors: Best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis as a California petroleum baron who clashes with his son and a local preacher in the early 1900s; best director for Paul Thomas Anderson; and production design for Jack Fisk.

The best-actress prize went to Marion Cotillard as singer Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose, while Anamaria Marinca was runner-up for 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days, a Romanian drama in which she plays a woman who helps to arrange a friend's illegal abortion.
