’12 Years a Slave’ sweeps Boston Critics’ and N.Y. Online Critics’ Awards

The Boston Society of Film Critics gave four trophies to “12 Years a Slave,” including Best Picture. It looks like they might have opted to dole out some laurels to “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but many members didn’t see the film prior to voting. Last year the society went for “Zero Dark Thirty,” Daniel Day-Lewis and Emmanuelle Riva. To see more of their past champs, click through the calendar on the right side of this page at IMDB.

Many voters at the New York Film Critics Online had the same difficulty seeing “Wolf” and so opted on the “Slave” train, giving it kudos for Best Picture, Actor and Supporting Actress.
