Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, and Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma, won three awards each at the Houston Film Critics Society’s 12th Annual Movie Awards with The Favourite taking the top prize for Best Picture.

“We are thrilled to honor such a creative and entertaining film,” says Joshua Starnes, President of the organization. “The Favourite uses a broad visual approach, and a deep appreciation for its characters, to rethink the costume drama. Who would have thought a movie about royals could be so fun?”

Roma was named Best Foreign Language Film, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, won Best Documentary and Isle of Dogs won for Best Animated Film.

Included in the awards each year are honors for films shot in Texas, with The Standoff at Sparrow Creek receiving the Texas Independent Film Award (TIFA) as the best feature made in the state and Austin filmmaker Andrew Bujalski receiving the TIFA Visionary Award for Support the Girls
