LA gave it's nod to The Descendants (some day, I'll get around to posting a review of it; I wasn't as fond as some)...I suppose The Artist is a New York thing.  However, that's all it won, as the Los Angeles film critics spread their love to The Tree of Life, Michael Fassbender and Jessica Chastain, and even Hanna.

One can always count on Los Angeles to have their sort of personality with Best Actress; rarely is a frontrunner (or an American) on their roster, for instance:

2010: Kim Hye-Ja, Mother
2009: Yolande Moreau, Seraphine
2008: Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky
2007: Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose
2006: Helen Mirren, The Queen
2005: Vera Farmiga, Down to the Bone
2004: Imelda Staunton, Vera Drake

Sure two of these were eventual winners...one other was a nominee, and another a just-missed nominee...the rest however...
