Filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson's movie epic There Will Be Blood has been named Best Film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

The film, based on the book Oil! by Upton Sinclair, also garnered three other honors: Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, Best Director for Anderson and Best Production Design for Jack Fisk.

Marion Cotillard's portrayal of singer Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose won her the Best Actress accolade, while Amy Ryan was praised for her performance in Gone Baby Gone, taking home the Best Supporting Actress award.

Elsewhere, Romanian abortion drama 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days repeated its success at the Cannes Film Festival to be named Best Foreign Language Film, while star Vlad Ivanov took home the prize for Best Supporting Actor.

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association honours are one of the first groups to voice their opinions on the year's biggest winners in the buildup to the Academy Awards nominations announcement in January.
