The winner of the LAPC's of its 5th annual Veritas Award is Lionsgate’s "Bombshell" written by Charles Randolph and directed by Jay Roach; starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and John Lithgow.

"Bombshell" is based on the accounts of a number of women employed at Fox News who came forward exposing the toxic environment of male entitlement at the news organization created by CEO Roger Ailes. When Gretchen Carlson slapped Roger Ailes with a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment, her decision prompted her colleague Megyn Kelly to come forward with her own story. Other FOX women joined the revolt risking their careers and inciting a movement that reverberated throughout the News Industry which eventually led to the downfall of Ailes.
