Roma” the Mexico-set period drama dedicated to director Alfonso Cuarón’s real-life childhood nanny, triumphed with four wins when the Washington, D.C. Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) announced their 2018 honorees.    “Roma” won Best Film and Best Director, as well as Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography for its sweeping black-and-white lensing.

Best Documentary kudos went to the lovely, feel-good “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” The film centers on the life and philosophy of the late Fred Rogers, host of long-running, often groundbreaking children’s program “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.”

The Joe Barber Award for Best Portrayal of Washington, DC, given each year in honor of one of WAFCA’s cherished late members, went to Adam McKay’s offbeat Dick Cheney biopic “Vice.”

The Washington, D.C. Area Film Critics Association comprises 60 DC-VA-MD-based film critics from television, radio, print and the Internet.
