Yes, the "area" includes Virginia, Maryland and D.C. itself.

Yes, we call it the DMV 'round these parts.

Yes, the "area" includes Virginia, Maryland and D.C. itself. It was formed in 2002 as The Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, but its acronym is WAFCA which omits D.C. as do some news articles regarding the awards.
